If a child is unable to come to School due to ill-health, we ask that the School Office is informed before
A child should not return to school within 48 hours of a vomiting or diarrhoea episode.
Our school colours are pale blue and burgundy. Boys and girls wear pale blue polo shirts, burgundy sweatshirts and grey trousers. Girls can wear grey skirts or pinafore dresses and burgundy cardigans. In summer they can choose a red checked gingham summer school dress. We ask for black school shoes or boots. No jewellery is permitted.
PE kit is a black t-shirt and red shorts with trainers or pumps.
All children need a water bottle (with their name on) in School. This can be filled in School from our water coolers. Please encourage your child/children to remember to bring their bottles home on a Friday for a thorough wash. Bottles are available to buy from the School Office for £1.
Fruit (or vegetable!) snacks
We are a nut-free school. Please read all packaging carefully when preparing packed lunches. Our School Cook is happy to talk to anyone if they have concerns about allergies or any other dietary requirements.
This is £2.30 a day, working out at £11.50 per week. Children can order one-off dinners from the menu whilst having packed lunches other days. Money is paid on Mondays and Fridays. Children can hand it
If you are ever unsure about whether your child is eligible for free school meals, please ask for advice at the School Office. You will be aware that a successful application for free school meals brings additional funding into School that can be used to support your child in many ways.
Dropping off and picking up
The clergy at St. Begh's kindly allow us to use the Church car park for dropping off and picking up. Parents and carers are asked to respectfully reverse park into a marked bay. (Please remember that this is a Remembrance Garden area). Children should be accompanied by an adult across the car park.
At the end of the day, children are released through the year group doors. Staff are on duty
Please let School know if you are allowing your child to walk alone, with siblings or a group of friends.
Please never pick up someone else's child as a favour without their knowledge.
