Drop off/Pick up procedure
Starting next week (Mon 10th Feb) students will be dropped to
the assembly area. Teacher on duty at 8.15am. If you need to
drop your child before 8am – I suggest Before School Care.
Music will sound and all students sit in our line with hats and bags
on. We say our goodbyes at that point. Teachers will bring them
back to the room and we unpack.
 If you arrive late, you must go through the office. Online roll
prevents classroom arrivals.
 Picking up early – Go to office first and we send child there.
 If Pick up arrangements are different please write a note in
Communication book.
 Children and parents are not to be in classrooms without
 Mondays – Staff Prayer. Wednesday – Staff meeting.
 If
your child is having trouble settling:
Please drop them off, give one cuddle
and leave. We know its hard but call and
ask if they’ve settled.
 In the afternoons if you’re here early,
we’d really appreciate it if you could be
mindful that it is still learning time for the
children. Waiting on the grassed area and
not on the walkway is best.
What to bring
Home folder must go to and from school each
Hat and water bottle
Snack in a separate container clearly named.
Healthy snack only – cheese, fruit, yoghurt etc.
MT and Lunch- keep it simple!
Insulated lunch boxes will not go in the fridge.
Ice bricks work well.
*Please remember spoons
Library bag each Wednesday
Spare clothes (just in case!)
Health Alerts
We have a child with Anaphylaxis. School
policy is currently that no child should bring
any foods to school that contain nuts.
If it states “May contain traces…” please let
your child know that they need to tell us that
they have this.
Sunscreen needs to be applied to students
before school and they can bring some in
their bag. Just let us know if you want us to
remind them.
