Welcome to Indigo!

Year 2 are working very hard in all lessons at the moment. We are showing our eagerness to learn and trying to be active learners. 

Please send in PE kits every Tuesday and Thursday.

Our assembly day is Friday 28th February at 9am. 

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

Class Information

We encourage reading for pleasure across our school. We ask parents to tick in the reading for pleasure log if they have had a story read to them at home or your child has read their school reading book. If they would like to read a story from home or the library this can also be recorded. School reading books are changed on a Friday.

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 8:45am. 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 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.  All children at The Arches Primary School are asked to wear the following;

  • Purple jumper/cardigan
