Thank you for visiting the year group page. We are really looking forward to welcoming your child into Year 3 and want share with you some information to help support your child’s transition back into the classroom.
Drop Off Arrangements
Your child will start school on Thursday 2nd of September and will enter the building using the Year 3 entrance in the car park.
This door will be open from 8:45am and closed promptly at 8:55am. Once inside, your child should go straight to their new classroom where they will be given instructions by their teaching team on handwashing and where to store their belongings. There will be members of the school team on hand to help guide the children straight to their classroom.
What to Wear and What to Bring
Children are expected to attend school in full summer school uniform, please see our uniform page for further details. In addition, children should bring in their PE kit in a named red school drawstring bag and a rucksack containing only the following items:
Hygiene and Safety Measures
During the first day and on an ongoing basis, your child will be reminded of the good hygiene practices that we followed last year. We will continue to follow hand washing and/or sanitising guidance in order to keep germs at bay. It would be really helpful if you could talk to your child about why it is so important that we maintain good hygiene to help keep everyone safe. Please encourage your child to speak to a member of their teaching team if they have any questions or concerns.
Your child will finish school at 3:15pm and will exit the building via the same Year 3 door. The teacher will release your child as per the instructions on the home time arrangement form.
If there are any changes to your home time arrangement form please fill in another one which can be found on the school website and then emailed in to the office. Please do not go to the office to hand in your form.
Home - School Communication
As per previous years, your child will be sent home with a contact book on their first day and this is where we ask you to communicate any issues, concerns, or key pieces of information that the class teacher needs to know. There will also be a staff member present each morning and afternoon at the Year 3 entrance/exit. Furthermore there will be a Meet The Teacher session, for all Year 3 parents, on Tuesday 7th September. This will take place in the 3KP classroom, so we need you to drop off as normal and then wait until the children are registered before we invite you in, at roughly 9.05. During this session we will talk more about the key points for the year ahead and address any questions that you may have about the expectations for Year 3.
