Parents

Welcome to this section of the website. It will provide you with all of the information you require on a day to day basis as a parent, from the latest newsletters and documents, to forms and other information about the regular life of the school.

School Meals

Our lunches are now provided by Independent Catering, a Kent based company passionate (as we are) about fresh, local produce. School lunches offer a balanced, nutritional and healthy meal for the children and take into account any specific dietary or allergen requirements that are notified to the School.

Hazel Forrester aka ‘Captain Hazel’ is the cook in our pirate themed kitchen. Hazel won the coveted Primary School Cook of the Year in 2013 an achievement of which we are incredibly proud.

Uniform

The children must wear school uniform at all times. A list of school uniform is provided separately and can be obtained from the school office.  Alternatively see the link below.

The children may not wear coloured trainers in school. They are allowed black training type shoes, provided they are not covered in coloured stripes/markings of any description.

Please ensure that all clothing is clearly labelled.

Children may wear stud earrings, but if you are having your child’s ears pierced, please do it during the Summer break, as children are not permitted to participate in PE activities whilst wearing earrings. In addition, we are not allowed to remove earrings for children, so please don’t have their ears pierced until they are of an age when they can remove and replace the jewellery independently.

Children should wear no other jewellery.

Children are not allowed to bring toys to school, apart from when joining the Reception year.

Please do not send your child to school with expensive or sentimental items.

Children may not bring mobile phones to school.

Sweatshirts, P.E. t-shirts, jogging bottoms for children in Year R, caps, fleeces, book bags and P.E. bags can be obtained from our school office.
 
Uniform can be purchased from the school office on:
 
MONDAY AND TUESDAY MORNINGS BETWEEN 8:30 – 9:30
THURSDAY AFTERNOONS BETWEEN 2:45 – 3:45
  

Lost Property

Please ensure that any items of clothing or equipment brought to school are permanently named. With over 420 children in school there will be times when property goes astray, although measures are taken to avoid these. Lost property boxes are located in the front entrance.

P.E.

The children must wear school P.E. kits for all activities. Earrings must be removed, by the children, before any activities begin. If the children are not able to remove earrings please do it for them on the days that they have P.E., before they come to school.  

Those items of school uniform which have our logo on, such as the sweatshirts, fleeces, cardigans, coats, polo shirts and PE shirts, are all available for purchase from the school office.
