Attending Pre primary

Absence from School

In order to ensure our duty of care for all children the school requires notification of non-attendance.  This can be achieved through sending us notice through the message you system, skool bag app, written note or phone call to the school or the teacher.

School times

Monday to Friday 8.50am until 3pm.  Classrooms are open at 8.30am.

Arrival

It is expected that pre-primary students will be supervised by a parent or an adult, until such time as the classroom teacher is present.  Playing on the outdoor equipment before or after school is not allowed.

Departure

Parents are asked to ensure that Pre-Primary students are collected at the appropriate time (3pm) to avoid unnecessary stress and anxiety to your child. If someone other than yourself is collecting your child, please let the classroom teacher know by way of a note or phone call or by writing the information in the message book at Pre-Primary.  The school will not release children to non-authorised persons or older siblings under 10 years of age.

School Parking and Security

The entrance at Kidman Court is closed to vehicles for the safety of students.  Parking is available in Kidman Court or Aylesford Avenue and parents are asked not to park vehicles in front of the entrance gates or within the Administration Parking area.

Parents and students may enter the school through the pedestrian gate provided.  Please ensure students are accompanied by an adult at all times.  Closure of school gates occurs at approximately 9.00am and they are secured until the end of the school day at 2.50pm.

Clothing

Pre-Primary students are encouraged to dress in school uniform and these may be purchased from Lowes.

If you do not wish to dress your child in school uniform please dress your child in loose, comfortable, neat and manageable clothing.  The children will participate in messy activities and, although we do take precautions, it is unfair to expect the children to keep their clothes clean at all times.  Paint stains on good clothes cause unnecessary anxiety to both you and your child.

Please ensure your child is sent to school with shoes that are appropriate for school activity – Velcro fastened sneakers are preferred. Summer sandals are acceptable.  Thongs or similar are not acceptable.  During outdoor play children will remove their shoes for general safety reasons, especially when using climbing equipment.

Hats

School hats may also be purchased from the Lowes shop. Children are required to have a hat for outdoor play to support the schools “No hat, no play” policy.  Children must wear a hat during outside play.

Please name all clothing and any other belongings such as schoolbags, lunch boxes and drink bottles.
