School start and finish times

Dear Parents and Carers,

Prompt Start and End to the Day

We are so proud of how well your children have settled into the routines in school and we are grateful for your ongoing support. From Monday 28th September, we are asking parents to ensure children are all into school for their class registration times. We have tweaked timings so that everyone will be in school within 15 minutes to support those parents with siblings in other year groups and reduce the waiting time for children on the yard.  Please ensure your child is in their class for the Registration time indicated on the table below.

If children arrive on site after the registration time for their class, they will be recorded as late in the register. Children who arrive after year group doors are closed may not be able to enter school via their usual door as this may be closed or in use by another class. You may be asked to take your child to the main entrance, log them as late and a member of the office staff will have to escort them down to their class. 

 

Year One children will now wait in zone 1 at the start of the day (rather than using the nursery gate), the member of staff will come out to the gap in the fence to welcome them in and we ask that children walk independently into school from zone 1.

 

Simple messages can be passed onto the staff at the doors, please ensure you maintain a 2m social distance from the staff. Unfortunately, staff are unable to spend longer periods of time with parents when they are at the door therefore information which requires greater explanation, more time with an adult or those of a confidential nature can be shared with staff via the telephone 0191 3000490  (between 8.10 and 8.25am or 3.30-3.45pm daily) or email office@monkhouseprimary.co.uk.

 

Thank you for your understanding and patience as we maintain the safety of our site at the start and end of the school sessions as well as ensure lessons are starting as promptly as possible and children have the maximum curriculum learning time.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

LJ Baggett

Head Teacher
