Returning to school on time
Please make sure that your children return to school on time. The first few days of a new year or term are extremely important. Children re-establish friendships and choose partners - if your child is not here, s/he may feel left out when s/he returns. Teachers give out vital information about life in the new class and explain the rules of the new room. Children who miss this can find school confusing, tend to worry or be anxious and can take a long time to settle back in. Teaching starts immediately and children who are not present miss out on the introduction to every new topic, making it very difficult for them to understand the rest of the term's teaching. Please don't put your child/ren at a disadvantage - get them back to school on the very first day. Thank you.
