PARKING

Please ensure you park appropriately especially in the car park outside and on the housing estate over the bridge. Please ensure there is space for the school bus and that it’s safe for children to cross the road. Many Thanks

END OF SCHOOL

A gentle reminder to parents in the Foundation Phase – School finishes at 3.30pm. Children need to be collected at this time. On many occasions last year, several children were consistently still in school after 4 o’clock! Whilst I understand there may be difficulties at times, we don’t expect it to be on a regular basis.

Please could I also ask that you make us aware of any changes to people collecting children in the Foundation Phase? If we do not know the person collecting the child, we will not let them leave! Please let us know!

Please could I also ask for children to refrain from playing with the play equipment when leaving the school premises? Lots of equipment is being moved / kicked around!

WRAP AROUND and AFTER SCHOOL PROVISION

We now have Little Stars Abercarn wraparound provision available at school until 3.30pm – anyone interested , please contact Kelly Podmore on 07541 134564 or call and see her between 11.30-3.30pm. They are based in our Nursery building!

We would also like to find out whether there would be demand for after school provision until 5.30pm – available to all children attending Abercarn Primary. The cost would be £6 per session and it would be available Monday to Friday from 3.30pm to 5.30pm. If you are interested, please contact Kelly!

ABSENCE LINE

If your child is absent, please use the absent line (Press 1 from the menu given). We will pick up your message! An increasing number of parents are wanting to speak to someone in the office to report an absence. The office is extremely busy especially at the start of the school day! Reporting absences using the absence line will help greatly!

BREAKFAST CLUB

Don’t forget our Breakfast Club runs daily from 8.10am. Children are provided with a healthy breakfast and lots of games are available.  Please note children should come to Breakfast club BEFORE 25 to 9.

WHO’s WHO

Here is a list of staff within our school. If you require further information on something, you will know the best person to talk to!

If you have concerns or questions regarding your child, the first person to talk to is the class teacher.
