Getting to School

Students are encouraged to walk to school if at all possible. In the interest of safeguarding and to support children with their developing independence, parents are asked to accompany children to the main outer gate on Whitman Road and say their goodbyes there. Children will be supervised the rest of the way by staff.

 

Bicycles and Scooters

Bicycles and Scooters must be stored and secured in the metal bike rack provided and not left propped up against the hall wall.

 

Items not stored in the rack, obstruct the fire escape routes and create a hazard. Any bicycle or scooter not stored in the rack, will be removed.

 

Any bicycle or scooter left at the end of the school year will be disposed of.

 

The school does not take responsibility for any items damaged or stolen.

 

Registration

The school day starts at 8.45 am. We ask that students do not arrive at school before 8.15 am, unless they are attending Breakfast Club (available from 7.45 am) or an organised event, as we cannot guarantee their supervision before that time.

Lessons begin straight after registration and so it is important that your child arrives on time so that they do not disrupt the class and miss out on the introduction to the lesson

Breakfast Club

Our Breakfast Club (7.45 - 8.45 am) provides before school supervision care for our pupils.

 

Children attending can be provided with a selection of light breakfast items such as cereal, toast, yoghurt, fruit juice and milk at an extra charge.

 

If you require any information about the Breakfast Club or a Breakfast Club Registration Form, they are available from the school office or for download here:

School Worship and Assemblies

The whole school community witnesses and praises God through collective Acts of Worship. Parents are welcome to any act of worship held in the church and the Thursday assembly held in the school hall (10.15 am)

 

The Angelus is said everyday by KS2 at 11.30 am. Class mass is rotated every Wednesday in KS2 classes. The whole school attend mass on Holy Days of Obligation, Carol Services and at the beginning and end of every term. During Lent, KS2 take turns praying the Stations of the Cross.

End of School Day Collection

Children must be collected from their line at 3.30 pmPlease collect your child on time or arrange to have an authorised person do so in your absence. If you are going to be late please phone the school in advance to let us know, if possible.

 

At 3:45 pm, if your child has not been picked up, they will have to be supervised by the ASCC staff and this will therefore incur a charge.

 

ASCC Contact telephone numbers:

Telephone: 0208 980 3939 - Ext 207

Mobile:        07760 441 952

 

Please ensure that you complete the Collection Consent Form, giving details of at least 3 adults who are authorised to collect your child in your absence.

 

The school will only allow named adults to collect a pupil.

 

The form is available from the school office or for download here:

Year 6 Pupils Going Home Alone

We appreciate that children want to experience independence and may be pressing you to allow them to come home on their own, however we would advise that you wait for the late spring, early summer to begin to allow children to walk home alone when the days are longer and brighter. This is a good time, with their increased confidence to consider this step towards greater independence and preparation for secondary school.

 

Please be aware that Year 6 pupils are not allowed to take younger siblings home.

 

If you wish your child to walk home alone then you must ensure that we have your signed consent form, available from the office or for download here:

School Library

Our school Librarian is on site every Wednesday until 4 pm. Please encourage your child by bringing them to our library and changing their books regularly.

 

After School Care Club

Our ASCC runs from 3.30 - 6 pm. It offers a variety of activities, but also a place to play and relax after a long day at school. All children are provided with a snack and drink on arrival at the club.

 

The ASCC Registration and Medication & Allergies forms, are available from the school office or for download here:

Curriculum Support  & Extra-curricular Activities

As well as the usual lessons, Guardian Angels offers extra-curricular support and activities throughout the school day. A copy of the Curriculum Support & Activities we offer is available from the school office or for download here:

School Closure

In some circumstances (such as failure of key services or extreme weather conditions) it may be necessary to close the school at short notice. We will notify parents as soon as possible by text message and/or recording a message on the school answer machine.

 

Please ensure we have your current phone numbers
