Work for Half Term Week 25th to 29th May


Dear parents and pupils of Swaffield,

We are so proud of how you have all adapted to home learning over the past couple of months. 
We feel it is important to take a well-earned break over the half term holiday in order to fully recharge and relax from the routines of daily learning. Therefore, we are suggesting a few meaningful activities for you to take part in and enjoy with your family over the next week: Half term at home

Welcome to the Spring Term 2020

Check out our Home Learning Page.

The following information, containing lots of useful information for this term, will be uploaded and sent home at the beginning of term:

 News & Dates

  • Cancelled: Friday 20th March at 9am in the Bottom Hall: Mothers' Day Assembly - with regret, we've cancelled this assembly but you can listen to our children singing the songs on Tapestry. 
  • School App - we communicate with parents frequently on the school app. Please ensure you have downloaded it and signed up. 

  • Please also check the Calendar and Term Dates.

Uniform

School uniform and P.E. kit is compulsory.

All clothing (including hats, scarves) must be labelled with your child’s name and class.
Reception children do not usually need trainers for P.E. other than sports day and other special events.

Please visit our Uniform page for details of our uniform policy and the link to our supplier where you can purchase uniform featuring the Swaffield School logo.

The School Day

Reception children need to line up in the top playground in time for the first bell at 8.47am.

A longer bell goes at 8.50am which is the start of the school day.

School starts for Reception children at 8.50am and finishes at 3.05pm.

Break Time

Your child will be offered a fruit/vegetable snack at morning break time.
No other snacks are permitted.

Milk is available break time for those who have signed up to the Cool Milk service. Milk is free for under 5’s as well as those who get free school meals and subsidised for all other primary school children. When your child turns five years old, please ensure you've registered and paid if you would like your child to continue to get school milk. Find out more including how to register by visiting www.coolmilk.com

Please note that Swaffield has a "No Nuts" policy.

Lunch Time

Lunch for Reception pupils is from 12pm to 1pm.

You'll receive a copy of the school lunch menu which runs on a 3-week cycle. You're required to write on a slip of paper what you want your child to eat and send this in daily. Follow this link for information about school lunch and the current menu.

Children in Reception receive a FREE SCHOOL MEAL, which is funded by the Government. A separate registration form must be completed for this. Your child may have a packed lunch, provided by you, if you prefer.

Please make sure this is in a clearly named container (not a plastic bag) and that it complies with our School Meal and Packed Lunch Policy. You may decide on a half-termly basis whether your child will have school lunch or packed lunch; any changes must be notified in writing to the School Office before the end of each half term. It is not possible to change on a daily or weekly basis.

Please note that Swaffield has a "No Nuts" policy.

End Of The Day

The school day ends at 3.05pm for Reception children.

Please collect your child promptly from the classroom on the ground floor. Please phone the School Office if you are delayed. Children who are not collected at 3.05pm will be taken to the School Office to wait for you.

If you've arranged for someone else to collect your child please inform the class teacher, teaching assistant or office staff in advance.

Homework

You can read more about homework and our expectations for each year group here.

Reading

Follow this link to find out more about reading and books or download a suggested reading list for Reception and Nursery here.

Meeting Teachers

The teachers are always pleased to see parents or carers of the children they teach, but it is not possible for them to talk to you when they are responsible for a class.

Teachers are happy to make an appointment for before or after school. The Head, Deputy and Assistant Head are very happy to see parents or carers at almost any time. If you prefer, you can ring to make an appointment to see either of them.

You'll be invited to meet your child’s class teacher for a private 15 minute appointment to discuss progress in the Autumn Term and the Spring Term.

Likewise we might discuss any concerns we have with relevant professionals and will inform parents if any action is required to support your child

We want parents to feel welcome in our school. Please see your child’s teacher if you would like to help, for example, by accompanying classes on outings or helping with reading for the first half-hour of the day.

Birthdays

If you wish, you can send in a plate of fruit or donate a book to your child’s class and write a birthday message inside.

Swaffield is a 'Healthy School' and, as such, we do not allow sweets, chocolate or cakes to be brought into the classroom; this includes birthday cakes.

You may provide a plate of prepared fruit for the class to share if you wish.

If you wish you can buy a book to donate to your child's class and it will be inscribed:

This book has been donated to Class ... to celebrate the birthday of ...

 (It is always best to check the suitability of a particular book, with the class teacher, before you purchase it.)

Please DO NOT ask teachers to distribute 'birthday bags' or invitations.
