Parent Information (Puffins)


Welcome to Puffin class!
We love to learn and are very busy getting to know each other and having fun exploring our indoor and outdoor classrooms. 
Our class teachers are:
Mrs Sally Coxall (Mondays and Tuesdays)
and Mrs Kate Samways  (Wednesdays,Thursdays & Fridays).
Our teaching assistant is Miss Hollie Jackson, and Miss Jolene Cole also works with us. 
Home Learning
Reading is important and therefore we expect you to hear your children read daily and make a brief note of how they got on in their reading records.
Books and reading records (in book bags) are to be brought on a Monday to be changed
Weekly reading/phonic challenges are uploaded to Tapestry each week
Children benefit from reading each book at least 2 times, once to decode and a second to reflect on what they have read.

Health and Attendance

Regular attendance at school is vital for your child’s education.

If your child is absent from school for any reason school needs to know. Please telephone the school by 9.15 a.m. on the first day of absence.

We need to know the reason (as schools are required to distinguish between authorised and unauthorised absence of pupils) and how long your child is likely to be off. Please ask your Doctor for advice regarding how long your child should be kept off school.

If medicine is prescribed, arrangements can only be made for the administration in school if the dosage is x4 daily. Parents are asked to complete a request form and all medicines must be handed to Mrs McCrossen or Mrs Lee, in the original packaging, clearly labelled with date, contents, pupil’s name and dosage.

Unavoidable absence and medical forms can be found here.
