Dates for the rest of the academic year
Monday 27th June – Commonwealth week
Thursday 30th June – Sports Day 2022 - Reception to Year 6 children only. Due to our growing numbers of children in school, we will divide the event into two separate time slots - a KS2 event and a Reception/KS1 event.
KS2 will start at 9.00 a.m. prompt and we aim to finish by 10.30 am.
Rec and KS1 will start at 10.45am and we aim to finish by 12pm.
There will be a variety of races for different ages and year groups - the children have been practising for these in their PE lessons. Children should come to school with their PE kits on and wear trainers and their school jumper/cardigan. We shall send home their pump bags beforehand.
Please prepare your child for all weathers!
- a) If hot, sun hats and sun cream applied before school
- b) If cold, warm waterproof clothing and coats
If it pours or the field is hazardous, we shall cancel the event. Please note that we shall not make a decision about whether to go ahead or cancel until 7.45am – if this is the case, we will send a text message out to parents via ‘School life’, so please do not ring before! If this is the case, we will go ahead the event at another date, with staff and children only.
The KS2 Event 9.00am – 10.30am
We ask that all KS2 parents drop their children off at their usual entrance at 8.40am prompt (both Yr 3/4 and 5/6 children). Gates will open to parents who are spectating, at 8.45 a.m. Please wait at the Yr 3/4 and Yr 5/6 gates. We will not allow any members of the public onto the school premises beforehand. We will only be leaving the gate open for 15 minutes. At this point, it will be locked for security reasons. There will be no entry after 9:00a.m. The gate will then re -open at 10.30am for you to leave, unless you have a child racing in Rec/KS1 then you are free to stay, if not, then please leave via the Yr 5/6 gate.
The Reception/KS1 Event 10.45am – 12pm
We ask that all Rec/KS1 parents drop their children off at their usual entrance at their usual gate and time. Gates will open to parents who are spectating, at 10.35a.m. Please wait at the Yr 3/4 gate (the end gate near the park entrance). We will only be leaving the gate open for 15 minutes. At this point, it will be locked for security reasons. There will be no entry after 10.50am. The gate will then re -open at 12pm for you to leave, please leave via the Yr 3/4 gate.
In our efforts to reduce plastic waste at school, we would encourage you to send your child with a refillable water bottle which they will take to the field. Please remember that we are a no smoking site and therefore will not be allowing adults to smoke during the event or to go in and out of the gate to smoke.
All children will have the opportunity to take part in at least two races. They should have their labelled water bottle with them on the field, so that they can have a drink when they have raced.
At the end of the event, we would like all parents to leave as quickly as possible to allow the next set of parents to enter. The children will be taken safely back to their classrooms. Children will be escorted into their classrooms by their teacher. We ask if all parents could stay on the opposite side of the field to where the children are seated and do NOT sit or let children play on the tyres at the end of the track. We take the safety of the children very seriously. There will be many people on the field, please do not approach your child, as we need to make sure all children are safely brought back into school.
