“A Caring Christian Community”
BOSTON AVENUE SITE (Upper Phase)
Children should arrive at school at 8.45am ready for an 8.55 am start.
They are unsupervised before this time, so we request that children do not arrive before 8.45am.

10.30am - 10.45 am (KS2)
Lunch break (see Arrangements below)
12 noon - 1.05pm (KS1)
12.15pm – 1.05pm (KS2)
Afternoon break time

End of school day
3.10pm finish for all children on Fridays.
To encourage independence, we ask parents to wait in the playground after school behind the ‘yellow line’
to allow staff to see children as they exit the classroom and find their ‘collector’.
When collecting your child we do ask you to leave the playground promptly as this helps us to identify any uncollected youngsters.
For children under 9 years old, parents are asked to complete a form advising the school as to who will collect the child each day.
If parents are not in the playground at the end of school the teacher on duty will take any children awaiting collection to the school office.
Should there be occasions when someone other than the named person comes for the child the collecting adult will be required to sign a register held by the School Office.
In this case the child’s parent will ALSO need to be contacted by the school office to gain permission for the child to be taken by that adult PRIOR to the child leaving the site.
Assemblies take place every day:
Monday 10:00 - Whole School worship (Mr Booth)
Tuesday 2:40 - Singing/Music (Mr Withams / Mrs M van Looy)
Wednesday 9:05 - Church Service
Thursday 2:30 - KS1 Assembly

Friday 2:40 -Celebration assembly
Other special assemblies advised to parents for special occasions or class events.
School Lunch Arrangements
Hot school meals can be provided and parents should send the correct money/cheque on a daily basis or in advance for the week.
Children may bring a packed lunch in a small named container. There is a growing concern with regard to the children who suffer from ‘nut’ allergies. It is therefore important that, as these allergies can become life threatening to some children, parents make sure that no peanut butter/peanuts are provided in your child’s lunchbox.

No fizzy drinks, glass or sweets please.
There are free school meals available for those families who qualify, (please see School Office for details).
Children who go home to lunch should be collected at either 12.00 noon for infants or 12.15pm for juniors and returned to school between 12.55 and 1.00pm. Please inform the office on their return to school for the afternoon session.
