Teachers dismiss pupils

 

Teachers will dismiss pupils to their parent/carer from their classroom doors at 3:15pm.  If another adult is collecting your child, please let your child’s class teacher know.

Pupils are only permitted to go home on their own if they have a red pass.  This must be handed to Mr Lee on the main gate only.  Mr Lee will then hand back the cards to the office, ready to be redistributed the next day in the class box. Red cards are provided by the office once they have written permission from a parent.

If a child is not collected or does not have permission to walk home alone, a member of staff from the year group must take them to the office and inform office staff who will then contact parents/carers.

 

Break-times

Children attending junior school do not receive free fruit for break-times, so please send in a piece of fruit or another healthy snack for children to eat during morning break. Alternatively your child can buy a piece of fruit from the school fruit shop for 20p.  Please also provide your child with a named water bottle.

 

Lunchtimes

Children are given the option of a hot school meal provided by Chartwells or bringing in a packed lunch and drink.  This can be organised through the office.

Packed lunch boxes should be of a reasonable size and clearly marked with the child’s name. We promote healthy eating at Victoria and would like to see well-balanced and nutritious packed lunches and of course – no sweets please. Children having a packed lunch can also bring in an extra bottle of water or fruit juice to have with their lunch, but we do not allow energy drinks or fizzy drinks to be brought in.

 

Personal Possessions

Please ensure that children do not bring precious or valuable possessions to school.  Any such items are brought into school entirely at your own risk.  This includes football cards, toys and other items.

 

Educational Visits
At the start of each school year parents and carers will be asked to sign a consent form for their children to be taken off site for local visits within one mile, e.g. church, local area etc. All other outings need specific consent forms to be completed by the parent/guardian. No child is allowed on a trip unless the parent/guardian’s consent has been given. Some visits may ask for payments. These are optional, but trips may have to be cancelled if payments are not given.

 

Extra-curricular activities

We offer a wide variety of extra-curricular activities after school, ranging from academic, to creative and sports.  Letters will be sent home each term, and do require a small payment in order to allow them to run. If you require any information on clubs, speak to Miss Huddy in the office, or visit our website.

 

Swimming

Pupils attend swimming lessons in Year 4 at Hanworth Airparks Leisure Centre.  This is organised by the year group team and letters will be sent out.

 

Assemblies

Pupils attend whole school assemblies on Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons. There are also year group and class assemblies. These are thematic and support the pupils’ personal, curricular and safety development.

 

 

What your child needs in school

 

School Uniform

We are proud of our school and encourage the children to wear a school
uniform and this is as follows:
A maroon sweatshirt or cardigan with the school’s logo.
Grey or black trousers, shorts or skirt. 

Pale blue or white polo shirt or blouse.

Summer - As above or a blue and white or striped or checked dress.
We expect all children to wear the school uniform colours. Jeans, fashion garments and platform, high-heeled or backless shoes should not be worn to school.
Sweatshirts and cardigans with the school badge on may be purchased from school.  

 

PE Kit
The children need a P.E. kit that should be in school all week.
They will need:
- tee-shirt (white)
- shorts (dark in colour)
- plimsolls (for indoor P.E.)
- a named drawstring PE bag

Tracksuits and trainers may be worn for outdoor games.

Jewellery
Please do not send your child to school wearing jewellery unless it is for religious reasons. If your child has pierced ears then they should only wear small studs.

For safety reasons, children must not wear jewellery during P.E. lessons, unless it is for religious reasons, when it should be covered. No jewellery at all is permitted during swimming and children are required to wear a swimming hat.

 

All school uniform and PE kit should be clearly named.
