I hope you all had a lovely summer, a good break and that your child has enjoyed their first week back at school. I have enjoyed my few days so far getting to know the children and meeting some of you at the gates in the morning and afternoon. Please don’t hesitate to talk to me during these times or if you do need to have a confidential discussion please contact the office and we can schedule an appointment. Previously to becoming Headteacher at this school I was Headteacher at Bere Regis Primary School for nearly 4 years and previous to that worked in a local school in Weymouth for 11 years.
I would like to say how impressed I am at how smartly dressed the children are, I look forward to this continuing throughout the school year. I am aware that at times uniform and shoes may become soiled or broken and children will therefore not be dressed appropriately for a short period of time. On these occasions please write a letter informing us of this and send it in with your child.
Children with long hair need it to be tied up so the hair is out of their faces
The only jewellery allowed in school are watches, studs or small hoops which fingers cannot fit inside.
It’s great to see so many children on their bikes and scooters. Children on bikes will need to wear helmets at all times and on arrival at school, both scooters and bikes will need to be pushed to the bike shed and not ridden through the playground.
If you have changes of circumstances with regards to contacts please ensure you tell the office as soon as you can so we can update our records.
If your child brings to school their mobile phone it will need to be handed in to the school office at the beginning of the day and collected when they are leaving the premises. Please ensure the phone is turned to silent mode. Any phone found in bags will be confiscated until the end of the school day.
Please be aware that both playgrounds are a no mobile phone zone.
The whole school campus is a no smoking/no vaping site and there are no dogs allowed on the school campus.
