Welcome to 6J!

How Parents/Carers can support learning at home: 

  • Ideally, your child should read with an adult daily. Discussing what your child has read can really help ensure they have understood what they have read and develop their comprehension skills.
  • We welcome any feedback on how your child is reading and enjoying books.
  • Help your child to learn the relevant times tables and spellings regularly. A list of spellings will be added to the school website every Friday and should be learnt ready for a test on the following Thursday.
  • Find books and articles relating to this term’s topics to build on the children’s learning in school.

Music lessons and band practice are every Friday afternoon. 

P.E. lessons will be every Tuesday and Friday. Children will be able to do P.E. in their uniform due to the revised uniform policy (see below). 

Below is a link to the timetable for Autumn Term 2020 and the Parent/Carer curriculum leaflet for Autumn Term. 

Attendance and Absence

The attendance and lateness of children is monitored here at The Arches as well as the Educational Welfare Department of the local authority. From September 2015, the government stated that persistent absence is where a child’s attendance is below 90%.

Children should arrive at school for between 8:30am and 8:40am via Saughall Road entrance and pick up time between 3pm and 3:10pm. Active learning begins at 8.55 am and children are officially late from this time. If your child arrives after this time, your child will be recorded as late. If three lates are recorded at any one stage, our Learning Mentor will issue a letter and be in contact with you to aim to improve the situation. 

Lateness affects children in a variety of ways:

·       They may feel embarrassed or upset about coming into a classroom once the session has begun.

·       They miss out on learning or on registering/ordering snack etc. 

·       They don’t feel included in the daily routine from the start and this affects confidence and well-being.

·       A child arriving late can disrupt the learning of the rest of the class.

Lateness Procedure

The school gates are locked promptly at 8.55 am. After this time, you will need to bring your child/children into school through the main entrance where you will be asked to sign your child in at the school office, giving the time and reason for lateness.

Absence Procedure

If your child is unwell, please phone the school on the morning of your child’s absence by 9.00am. The office staff will record this information and will not need to bother you with follow up calls or letters.

If you forget to call in, a member of staff will follow up this absence either with a call or text asking why your child/children are not at school. In the first instance, this is to ensure the safety of your child. However, we also need you to clarify the reason for all absences or else we have to mark the absence as unauthorised.

School uniform 

The school uniform helps us to promote a sense of ownership and pride within our school. Please ensure all uniform is clearly labelled with your child's full name. In Year 6, children at The Arches Primary School are usually asked to wear the following:

  • Black blazer
  • Grey or black trousers/skirt/shorts or pinafore
  • White shirt
  • Purple school tie
  • Black school shoes (No trainers please)

HOWEVER, due to the current Coronavirus situation, the Governors have agreed that pupils can wear a modified version of the uniform for the Autumn Term: a plain white t-shirt/polo shirt, school sweatshirt/ school hoodie, black jogging bottoms (without a logo) and trainers. 

Pupils with long hair are advised to wear it up. If your child wishes to wear a bow please ensure it is either purple, black, grey or white and of an appropriate size. Children are discouraged from wearing jewellery to school, items include; earrings, watches, rings, bracelets and necklaces.
