Important things to remember
All children are expected to wear the school uniform:
- Grey/black trousers, skirt, pinafore or shorts.
- White shirt, blouse or polo shirt.
- Blue jumper or cardigan.
- Black shoes with laces or securely fastened.
- Girls may also wear a blue check dress.
- The children have the option of purchasing our school tie which we designed with the designer Paul Smith, a past pupil of Beeston Fields.
Every Monday Oak class will be going for the first half of the year. Please ensure children arrive with their kit every week without fail (a full swimming costume for girls and fitted trunks for the boys). Any jewellery must be removed before the start of the day and long hair should be tied back and any long fringes gripped back. If children wish to wear goggles to swim then their teacher will need a signed letter from the parent/carer giving permission.
Please also ensure children have their PE kits in school from Monday to Friday in case of any extra PE lessons.
Reading & Homework
Please remind your child to bring their reading books and diaries to school everyday in their Book Bags.
We encourage children to read at home everyday. Parents/carers please make a positive comment in your child's diary. Reading at home is crucial and we encourage all friends and family to be positive role models and to read at home with your child daily.
Also children are encouraged to complete their 'Buzzing to Read' card in order to get a reward for Reading at Home from Mrs Lindsay!
We encourage children to drink water throughout the day to keep themselves hydrated and keep their minds active all day long. Please send your child to school with a bottle of fresh water everyday. Thank you.
Please make sure your child’s name is in all garments brought to school including shoes, bags and coats. Children are responsible for their own garments and equipment.
Please do not send your child to school with any toys or anything of special value to them. We cannot take responsibility for any items that may go missing. We will inform you if we have any special days where toys will be allowed to be brought into school.
If you would like your child to receive milk at school, please register with ‘Cool Milk’ providers. Please speak to the School Office for more information. or click on the link on the 'Parents' section on the website for information on Online Registration.
Children can bring in 20p daily for the option of buying a healthy ‘tuck’ at playtimes from the school kitchen. Children are responsible for looking after their own money.
Lunch is at 12.00 noon and is followed by a period of outside play, supervised by our midday supervisors.As we are a healthy school, please provide a healthy lunchbox if your child is having a packed lunch.
Please keep the School Office updated with all your current contact details so that we can contact you directly and keep you updated with all school matters efficiently.
School gates will be open by 8.45am. Children line up in the playground on their coloured spot and wait with their parents/carers for their class teacher to arrive at 8:50am.
Parents should say goodbye in the playground and see their children safely into school.
It is disruptive if children come in late, but if you are late you need to come in through the School Office and sign in. Please be punctual and remember that school starts at 8.55 a.m.
Teachers will dismiss classes at 3.30pm from the Key Stage Two home-time exit.
If someone different is collecting your child you must inform the School Office or advise the class teacher in advance.
Pupils are required to say ‘Goodbye’ to their teacher and await permission to leave. Please reinforce this safety rule with your child at home.
