What about meals?
Lunchtime is a learning experience and well balanced meals are provided. Staff encourage the children to eat independently with good table manners. Milk is provided for the morning break and children bring one piece of fruit per day for the afternoon.
Successful education is dependent on a two-way partnership between home and school. We are working together for the benefit of your child and parents must never hesitate to come to see us if they have any problems. In the first instance see either Mrs McCaughley or Miss Connor . Alternatively please make an appointment through the office to see Mr Taylor.
If anything about your child’s progress or general development is giving you cause for concern e.g. learning development, speech and hearing, please let us know as soon as possible, so that we can consider whether it might be appropriate to contact the relevant outside specialists for their help and guidance. We equally discuss any concerns we may have with you before contacting any outside agency.
Small children vary greatly from one individual to another in how they react to changes at home e.g. parent away on business, change in childcare, illness or death, loss of a pet etc. Please let us know of anything that may be affecting your child’s mood or behaviour, however trivial it may seem, so that we can deal with things sensitively.
