The School Day
The doors open at 8.50am and the registers are taken at 9.00am when the classroom doors are closed. Should you arrive late (after 9am) please come to the school office.
The school day finishes at 3pm.
Lunches are now free to all infant children. Some children are also entitled to pupil premium, which lets older children have free school meals. If you think you are eligible for this, you can apply directly online at http://www.kent.gov.uk/education-and-children/schools/free-school-meals
. Please see the separate sheet for the menu.
We do request that all children wear correct school uniform to school every day. The sweatshirt is red with a school logo. This may be worn with a grey or black skirt or trousers and the green polo shirt. The sweatshirt, polo shirt, PE bags, book bags, caps and red fleeces are available to purchase direct from the supplier using the following internet link. This facility will enable you to purchase uniform supplies as your convenience for delivery direct to your home, or now also to the school free of charge during term time.. Please also see the additional information under uniform.
The school office also hold a limited amount of new uniform, which we limit to two items per family. Please be aware the office can only accept cash or cheques as payment.
Summer uniform for girls is a red checked dress and for boys grey or black shorts.
POLO SHIRTS £7.00
BOOK BAGS £5.50
We do occasionally have some good quality second-hand items for sale if parents are interested in saving money.
Dress for P.E.
All children should have a named, drawstring bag containing:
Plimsolls (not trainers)
a white T-shirt
Jewellery is best worn at home and earrings may not be worn for P.E. Children may only wear stud earrings if they can remove and put them back by themselves. Otherwise they will not be able to take part in such activities.
The children are encouraged to change for P.E. with minimum help, so Velcro or buckle fastened shoes are best. Boots or shoes with long laces are very difficult for young children.
Before and after school care
There are breakfast and after school clubs available. These are run by the junior school. Please contact them on 01227 464119 for more information.
