School times School starts at 8:55am and ends at 3:15pm, however we open our doors at 8:45am so we can start lessons promptly at 8:55am. Please try hard to get your child to school on time and to collect them promptly. If your child is late, it is extremely important that you come in via the main reception to let the office staff know your child has arrived.
If your child is absent please ring the school office in the morning to let us
know the reason. The school telephone number is 01922 710874.
Play times and Dinner time
During lunch time children can chose to have a packed lunch from home or a school dinner in the dinner hall with the other children. Please remember that ‘Universal Free School Meals’ stop at the end of Year 2. If you are eligible for ‘Free School Meals’ please ensure you complete a ‘Free School Meal’ application form (available from the school office). In readiness for September, please complete these as soon as possible. If you have to pay for your child’s school meals, please ensure payment is made in advance, preferably on a Monday, via the kitchen. This will help the kitchen be prepared for how many meals to cook.
Once your child has finished their lunch, they will get the opportunity to play with their friends on the KS2 playground. Throughout the week, the children will get the chance to play on the trim tail which is on the field on the KS2 playground.
During the morning playtime the children can buy a slice of toast for 20p. Toast is limited to one per child and the children are responsible for their own money. Please try to send in the correct change.
Water bottles: All children need to bring a water bottle to school which can be refilled in the classroom.
Your child is expected to wear the Beacon Primary School uniform.
This consists of:
- White or red polo shirt
- Grey trousers/ skirt/ pinafore dress
- Red sweatshirt / cardigan
- Red and white checked summer dress
- Sensible black shoes
As a special treat on their birthday the children can come to school in their own clothes.
Please write your child’s name in each item of clothing so that we can return any lost items.
Your child will be doing PE twice a week. Please ensure that your child has their full PE kit in school every day. They can take it home at weekends or at the end of a half term for washing.
This should consist of:
- A red ‘Beacon’ t-shirt
- A pair of pumps or trainers
- Black shorts
This takes place on a Monday morning from 9am until about 9.45am where parents, grandparents, carers, friends etc. are very welcome to join us sharing in the children’s achievements. You will be notified on the Thursday before if your child has been chosen to receive a certificate in the celebration assembly. If you would like to celebrate anything that your child has achieved out-of-school, they are welcome to bring these along any Monday.
