Notices for Parents and Carers



Pupils will be given two pieces of homework on Wednesday.  This has to be completed in full and to a high standard and handed in the following Wednesday for homework review. Homework review will take the first twenty minutes of the morning and so if your child fails to bring it, they are missing out on valuable learning time. There will be a Year 6 homework club running every Tuesday for half of lunch time 12:15-12:45.  In order to make sure children are high school ready, it is essential they complete all homework tasks. We will be monitoring homework and missing or incomplete homework will be followed up by a note stuck into your child’s reading record that we require you to sign.


Walking home

Lots of parents and carers allow their children to walk home alone in year 6. If you would like your child to walk home alone, please send in a letter to notify your child’s class teacher. Children will not be allowed to leave without written consent.



Please label PE kits with your child’s full name. Our PE lessons are on Thursdays and kits should be kept in school on children’s pegs at all times. The kit consists of a white tee shirt, navy shorts and black pumps. Trainers may be worn for outdoor PE. PE kits are not to be lent from other children.



Reading Books and Reading Records

Your child has been issued with a reading book and reading record.  We ask that children read at least three times per week for fifteen minutes at a time and that this is evidenced by an adult signing the reading record. Children can still continue to keep up with their Bug Club reading online.  This can count towards one of their reads.  Pupils can see their class teacher for their passwords and usernames if they have been forgotten. Missing a playtime is our sanction if a child has failed to read three times by Friday.
