Extra Info

Please make sure your child comes to school prepared and have the following equipment:

· a ruler with millimetres (no metal or bendy ones please), lead pencils, blue, black and red pens, (simple biro pens with no fancy attachments please as they tend to be distracting), large scissors, glue, sharpener, eraser and coloured pencils enclosed in a small pencil case. Large pencil cases take up too much room on desks. Please label all items.

· Please provide a box of tissues for the class to use. Thank you to those families who have done so already.

· Note: no liquid paper / whiteout

All clothing must be clearly labelled.

Absences must be notified to the school explaining a child’s absence. 

Medication - Asthma medication should be kept in the student’s school bag and the office, and class teachers need a copy of the Asthma Management Plan prepared by your doctor. All other medication MUST be kept at the office and parents will need to complete a medical indemnity form giving details of doses and times. If your child has any allergies or medical conditions that may require urgent treatment our school needs an Action Plan. Please contact us for more details about medical conditions.

Looking forward to another great term for 5/6D.
