Information for pupils Bringing and Collecting Your Child Arrival at School Pupils may arrive from 0800 onwards (unless attending Breakfast Club) when staff will be on duty. Whistle and line up is at 0840. Registration is at 0845 followed by lessons. In the mornings please park in the main school carpark off Chapel Road and take your child/ren to the coloured gates to the right of Magdalene House where a member of staff will receive them. Alternatively, if you arrive via the ‘Hudson’ entrance pupils will be received via the gate in the ‘Pirate Ship’ playground. If it is raining the children will be sent by the staff on duty to the Alan Salmon Hall.

Arriving Late Any children arriving after Registration time should be taken via the main Magdalene House entrance to the Receptionist who will register the child and take or send him/her to class. Reasons must be given for lateness and the ‘Late Book’ signed. The child will be marked ‘late’ in the register.

Collecting Children after School 1530 – Pupils can be collected from the Crush Hall (Magdalene House Reception) by a Parent or Guardian. 1610 – Pupils can be collected from the Infant, triangle playground by a Parent or Guardian. 1730 – Pupils can be collected from Crush Hall (Magdalene House Reception) by a Parent or Guardian Magdalene House children may be collected by an older sibling/pupil from the Senior School but the school must have received written permission from a Parent or Guardian stating that the child will go with that person straight to a supervising adult. If a child is to be regularly collected by anyone other than the parent/carer, written details of the arrangement should be sent to school at the beginning of term on the appropriate form (this may be obtained from Magdalene House reception). Any other arrangement for the collection of children during the term must be put in writing to the school 24 hours BEFORE the date/time required.

Procedures When a Child is Not Collected on Time If for any reason the person collecting the children is delayed they should inform the School via Reception as soon as possible. Any pupils who cannot be collected as a result of the delay will be supervised by a member of staff for as long as necessary.


Procedures in the Event of a Child going Missing In the unlikely event that a child is lost or goes missing, the parents/carers and relevant authorities will be informed. The grounds and buildings would be searched and checks made. The ‘Missing Child’ policy explains procedures if such an event were to occur.

Absences Parents are asked to phone into the school if their child is absent due to illness: a letter must be sent on their return in order to explain their absence. In this way it is often easier to help with catching up with missed work. If it is likely that a child will be absent for some time, please contact the class teacher concerned so that arrangements can be made to help.

Permission for Absence during Term Time To request absence during term time please write a letter addressed to the Senior Deputy Head Magdalene House who will review and send a written response.

Clubs We have an extensive extra-curricular programme that pupils will be asked to sign up to at the beginning of each term. We would like to remind you that all club sessions must be attended for the term/half term specified. If it should be necessary for your child to leave a club for extenuating reasons please inform the Magdalene House office in writing. For safety reasons, the numbers of children attending a club may need to be limited. On evenings when Parent Consultations take place please note that only Play and Activities will take place for Reception – Prep 2 and Homework Club for Prep 3 - Prep 6. 1530 1610 1610 1730

Information for pupils Bringing and Collecting Your Child A homework club is also available which begins on the first day of each term and continues until the last day of term. Pupils attending Homework Club will not be released until 16.10. NB On evenings when Parent Consultations take place please note that only Play and Activities will take place for Reception – Prep 2 and Homework Club for Prep 3 – Prep 6.


Homework Homework is an essential part of the curriculum. It is our belief that acquiring the habit of study at home stands children in good stead throughout their education. It helps develop the ability to work independently and reinforces, extends and enriches the work completed in the classroom. Parents’ assistance is appreciated in providing a quiet environment in which their child may work and in helping their child where it is felt to be useful and appropriate. All pupils are expected to read to an adult every evening for the time set by the class teacher. In addition pupils have the following: • Reception class children are expected to practise sounds, words and numbers and complete an English or Mathematics worksheet at weekends as appropriate. • Prep 1 – Prep 2 children are expected to practise weekly spellings, number bonds or times tables that are given. An English or Mathematics worksheet is distributed at the weekends where appropriate. • Prep 3 – Prep 5 homework is set daily for up to 30 minutes. • Prep 6 homework is set daily for up to 40 minutes. As the pupils progress through the school the amount of homework each week increases. Children should not go beyond the allocated time given for their homework. If the work has not been completed then a note should be put in the Homework Diary. If a note has not been received the child may be asked to complete or redo the work during the lunch hour.

The Homework Diary and Reading Record Every child is given a homework diary from the time that he or she joins the school. This is the main method for communications between parents and the school and it is used to highlight or provide any information that is necessary. From Prep 3, pupils are expected to write the homework task in the diary themselves. The Reading Record Book and the Homework Diary should be initialled each day by the parent/carer to confirm that the reading homework and set task/s have been carried out satisfactorily. Appropriate comments may be added if so wished. Prep 6 pupils have a personal Magdalene House combined reading record and homework diary. If any particular problems or difficulties arise these are often best dealt with by contacting your child’s teacher to arrange a time to discuss these further. 47 53


Information for pupils Maintaining a Safe and Secure Environment The safety of the children is our highest priority. We will therefore: • Only allow a child to go home with their parent, unless we have received advance parental permission (preferably in writing) that he or she may be collected by another adult. • Never allow a child to leave the school site unsupervised. There is always at least one adult in charge of the outside area where collection of pupils take place. • Ask all visitors to identify themselves and to state their business before we give them access to the premises. Visitors sign in, wear security badges and are escorted throughout their visit. They sign out on leaving. • Register all pupils at the start of the morning and afternoon sessions. • Monitor pupils as they are collected by their parents or carers from the external gates or doors at the end of the day. • Ask that parents deliver their child/ren to a member of staff in the morning The entrance to our building leads to our reception desk, which is equipped with a seating area for visitors. This entrance has security locked doors which can only be opened from the inside by authorised adults. All visitors will be asked to wait in the visitors’ reception area until they have signed in and their escort has arrived.


Rewards and Sanctions We positively reinforce good behaviour and high standards by means of the school House Point system, Circle Time and good work assemblies at which children’s work and behaviour are publicly rewarded. The School has a Good Behaviour Policy. The House System Points are given for work or behaviour in which extra effort has been shown by the children. The four Houses are:

Holmes Yellow Sparks Green Peckover Blue Clarkson Red

Each pupil is placed in a House on entry to the school. House badges may be purchased from the school office at reception for a nominal cost. The Star Assembly, held once a week, celebrates the occasions when children have gained a star for their House by obtaining 20 points for good work/behaviour. Regular events and inter-house competitions are organized to promote a sense of ‘belonging’ to one’s House and these are held in individual classes, in sports and through whole school activities.

Information for pupils The School’s Code of Conduct The School’s Code of Conduct is a positive statement of what is expected of each child whilst at school. It reads as follows: • • • • • • • • • •

We are always polite and well mannered We are kind to one another and do not hurt anyone We listen to one another We are truthful We do as we are asked the first time We respect others and try to understand their feelings At all times we are sensible and act safely We seek help when we are unhappy We organise ourselves and our belongings We take pride in the appearance of ourselves, our work and our school.

This Code of Conduct is reinforced both in class and in assemblies with all children. It is understood and followed by all members of our school e.g. lunchtime supervisors, classroom assistants, teachers and office staff. The school has a system of sanctions ranging from a simple verbal reprimand through to suspension and permanent exclusion from the school. Any form of sustained unkindness whether physical or verbal is not tolerated and will be dealt with immediately. Children should feel safe, happy and confident in discussing any issues with adults at school. However, if your child reports a problem to you please do not hesitate to contact the school. All such issues will be dealt with sensitively and the individual will be protected. Other information concerning the welfare of the children (Anti-Bullying, Child Protection, Health and Safety on Trips, Good Behaviour and Sanctions) is available either on the website or by request from the School.

Child Protection The school’s child protection policies, including policies for intimate care and the safer recruitment of staff, are enforced rigorously in the Reception Class as well as throughout the school. We comply with all the relevant Early Years Statutory Safeguarding and Welfare Requirements and copies of the pertinent policies, including those which apply throughout the school, can be found on the school website or by request from the school. All staff receive training in Child Protection and Child Protection Procedures as statutorily required.

E-Safety In addition to the filtering and monitoring facilities which are part of the School’s IT network, we run regular e-safety awareness programmes for pupils, parents and staff. All parents are asked to sign a copy of the esafety policy to acknowledge that they have read and agree with the schools approach in this matter. Copies of the relevant policies are available on the school website.
