School Day

In order to accommodate all children arriving and leaving in as safe a way as possible, we have introduced staggered start and finish times for all year groups – this will not reduce the amount of learning time children have at school.

 

There will be three entrances and exits which parents/carers and children can use:

  • The main front entrance on Cranmer Road

  • The temporary ‘library’ entrance on Cranmer Road

  • The side entrance on Godwin Road

 

Year 3: 8:55 am - 3:20 pm

Year 4: 9:10 am - 3:35 pm

Year 5: 8:55 am - 3:20 pm

Year 6: 9:10 am - 3:35 pm

In order to assist us with maintaining social distancing, please arrive at the school site no more than 10 minutes before your child’s published start time.

Children may enter the classrooms 10 minutes before the official start of the school day. In order to assist us with maintaining social distancing, please arrive at the school site no more than 10 minutes before your child’s published start time.Please do not send your children to school alone before this as they will not be supervised in the playground. A member of the Senior Leadership Team is on duty at each gate from 8:45 am.

If your child arrives 10 minutes before the official start of the school day, there will be morning work available for them to complete. This work will either reinforce yesterday's learning or introduce that day's. Good attendance and punctuality are of great importance as these are vital life skills. If children are often late or absent, they find their lessons appear disjointed and their relationships with teachers and other children suffer.

 

Lunch Times

 

For Years 3 and 4 lunchtime is from 11:45 am – 12:45 pm. For Years 5 and 6 lunchtime is from 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm. Children may have a school lunch, bring a packed lunch or be collected to go home for lunch. Currently Godwin Junior School offers free school meals for all children. There is always a good variety of food to choose from and the menu is displayed in classrooms, the dining hall and on the school website. Children with special dietary needs can be provided for. Please do not send children with chocolate, crisps, glass containers or fizzy drinks with their packed lunch.

 

Illness or Accident

 

In the event of your child becoming ill or having an accident, you will be contacted by telephone or a note will be sent home. Please assist us by keeping us up to date with any changes of address or telephone number.

 

Medical

 

If your child is required to take medication of any sort during the day, it must be discussed with the lead first aider. Older children on regular medication, e.g. inhalers, will be encouraged to take responsibility for their own well-being, as part of independence training. For non-regular medication, only medicines that have been prescribed by a doctor and are clearly labelled with your child's name will be administered.

 

Security

 

In the interest of security, parents/carers are requested to use the main entrance when visiting the school and to call at the Office to make their presence known at all times. There is a buzzer entry system.

 

Absences

 

If your child is unavoidably absent or late, please notify the school by letter or by telephone. The school has a policy of 'phoning parents/carers on the first day of absence. This is to ensure that you are aware that your child has not arrived at school. You will be notified by email and text message well in advance whenever the school is to be closed for holidays or training days. Parents/carers whose children are often absent or late may receive a letter from the Deputy Head Teacher inviting them to a meeting to discuss the situation.
