Our Daily Routine
The school gates are opened at 8.40 am, parents can drop their children off between 8.40-8.55 am. Your child will go directly into school. Parents are requested not to leave their children before this time as they will not be supervised and the school is not responsible for their safety. Parents of Reception children can accompany their children directly to the classroom, whilst other parents are requested to use our ‘drop and go’ system including the use of the ‘turning circle’ in the car park. When dropping off or collecting your child please drive safely and park considerately.
Parents should ensure that children are in school before registration closes at 9.00 am. Pupils arriving after the registers have closed will be recorded as unauthorised absence, for that session, unless they have notified the school that they will be late on that particular day.
Parents are requested to collect their children promptly at 3.30 pm, unless they are attending after school clubs. Children may not leave the premises until a parent or designated adult arrives to collect them.
Parents may wait on the playground to collect their child where the children will be dismissed directly to them. Children are not permitted to cross the Village Hall car park or Village Green without supervision.
The playground gates are locked from 9 am until 3.15 pm Please ring the security ‘Call’ button, on Gate 1, for access to the school during these hours. Once your child has arrived in the school they must not leave without the office being advised.
Playtimes are supervised at all times. During playtimes children are encouraged to use sports equipment. These provide further opportunities for the development of personal responsibility, trust and self-esteem – important aims of our school.
At lunchtime children may either have a cooked meal or bring a packed lunch. Cooked meals are provided by Lansdowne Primary School kitchen and cost £2.30 per meal. Meals can be ordered on a daily basis through the school office. It is important to note that all cooked meals must be paid for in advance. This can be done via the school meal provider’s website, where parents can pay for weeks, term or even a year in advance. Alternatively, money should be put into an envelope with the child’s name and reason for payment. The meals menu is available 6 weeks in advance. From time to time, on special occasions such as for Father’s Day, Mother’s Day etc, parents will be able to enjoy cooked meals with their children.
The school is happy to provide guidance to parents on eligibility for free school meals. Parents who are eligible for free school meals are encouraged to avail of this service. We are trying to encourage the children to develop healthy lifestyles and this should be reflected in the contents of lunch boxes, wherever possible. For this reason we politely request that chocolate is not included. Please do not put nuts or nut products into lunch boxes as some children may have allergies.
We are a nut free school.
