Key Information & Reminders
Arriving and leaving school
Start and finish times are staggered to keep groups apart on the way to and from school. Please drop off and pick up your child quickly and do not socialise outside the school. It’s important that we all follow the government guidelines.
The children must arrive and be collected on time – they will not be able to wait in reception. Please do not enter the school building without an appointment. If you have a question, please phone the school or email. This goes against our open-door policy but I am sure you will understand why we need to put these measures in place. Parents/carers who come on site will be required to leave their contact details should we need to report to test and trace.
8.30-8.40am start – 3.00pm finish
8.50-9.00am start – 3.20-3.30pm finish
Healthcare Plans & Administering Medication Forms
It is important that we are kept regularly up to date with your child's healthcare needs. If your child has a health condition please tell us by completing the Individual Healthcare Plan attached below and emailing it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you child requires medication whilst in school, please also complete the Parental Agreement for Setting to Administer Medicine Form and email it, along with the Individual Healthcare Plan.
Please bring your child's medication to the school reception to be signed in. The school can only accept medication in its original packaging indicating the patient name and dosage that has been prescribed by a Dr and when both of the above forms have been received.
Dolce provide free hot lunches for Reception, Year 1 and 2, although parents may wish to provide their own. Key Stage 2 will be able to purchase these or provide their own.
End of Day Arrangements Forms
Please complete the attached form to inform us of your child's end of day arrangements.
Please inform us of any changes to your contact details, by emailing the school office or by using the School Gateway app.
Equipment and resources
For individual and very frequently used equipment, such as pens and pencils, it is recommended that all children have their own items that are not shared. These should stay in school.
Please can we ask that you provide for your child (in all year groups):
- A pencil and/or pen
- Ruler (30cm)
- Coloured pencils
- Small packet of tissues
- A water bottle
- A breaktime snack
Pupils should come to school in their PE kit on the days that they have this subject.
All school uniform, excluding ties, swimming hats and the school jacket, can be purchased online from Different Class Schoolwear. Differentclassschoolwear.co.uk
Ties are available to purchase from your child's class teacher. Please send your child into school with £4.20, in a named, sealed envelope.
Please remember to label all items of your child's uniform with their name. We recommend Stikins name labels, which can be easily stuck into clothes and shoes and onto bags, lunch boxes, drink bottles and pencil cases.
The school will receive a small commission from your purchase, when you enter our school fundraising number 22413. www.stikins.co.uk
If you do not wish to purchase name labels, please mark your child's belongings clearly with a pen.
Extra-curricular activities and clubs
The children at The Stoke Poges School would usually have the opportunity to participate in a huge range of activities, however due to COVID-19, we are unable to offer clubs at the moment.
We believe that children should have the opportunity to involve themselves in as many different activities as possible and we will re-introduce our timetable as soon as it is safe and possible to do so.
What will happen if someone becomes unwell?
If someone becomes unwell while at school, with a new continuous cough, a high temperature or loss if taste and smell, they will be sent home and advised to follow government advice.
If a child is awaiting collection, they will be isolated away from other children and cared for by a member of staff. PPE will be worn by staff caring for the child while they await collection if a distance of 2m cannot be possible.
What will happen if there is a confirmed case of coronavirus?
