Cashless Catering was introduced in September 2015. All lunches must now be paid for on a weekly, half termly or termly basis via your ParentPay account.
Letters were issued to all parents in July 2015 with login details for ParentPay. We would kindly ask you to please ensure your account is kept in credit.
In KS1 children come into class at 8.50am. Morning register is taken at 9.00am. In KS2 children come into class at 8.40am and register is taken at 8.50am. Please ensure that your children are at school on time.
If your child arrives at school after 8.40am in KS2 and 8.50am in Reception and KS1 but before 9.10am in KS2 and 9.20am in KS1 they will be marked late in the register. If your child arrives after the times stated above they will be marked absent for the morning session.
The doors close promptly at the start of the school day. We request that Parents /Carers do not enter the classroom once lessons have started as this interrupts teaching and learning.
If you find the doors and gates are closed to your child’s class you will need to enter the school through the main office access from Thomson Crescent. There is a late register that you will be required to sign and a reason stating why your child is late for school.
You must ensure your child arrives on time for school and that they are collected on time when school finishes. If you realise you will be late either arriving at school or collecting your child from school please the office on 020 8689 7688 and a message will be passed to the class teacher.
Children who arrive at school early are your responsibility, whether you are with them or not. Children who arrive alone before 8.20am must go to Breakfast Club. This ensures that they are kept safe. Teachers will be in the classrooms five minutes before the register is called.
If you are collecting your child and are unavoidably delayed, please telephone the academy, on 020 8689 7688, so that your child does not have to suffer undue anxiety.
Children, who have not been collected after school, wait with their class teacher until they are taken to the Office. Parents/Carers who collect their child/children from the office will need to sign a register stating why they have collected their child /children late.
If children remain uncollected 15 minutes after their Key stage closes they will be taken to Kingsley Kids Club where a charge will be made. The initial charge will be £3.00.
