A few reminders for your child starting at St Matthew’s

  • Please ensure that your child is on time for school. We open our doors at 9:10am and registration is at 9:25am (children arriving after this time will receive a late mark).
  • Please ensure you are on time to pick your child up from school, the Reception home time is 3:10pm, you will be greeted at the front gate by a senior member of staff and brought round to the Reception gate to collect your child.
  • Ensure all uniform is labelled with your child’s full name (including shoes and coats).
  • Your child will be provided with a healthy snack.
  • You can bring in a water bottle in, filled with water no juice please.
  • We spend lots of our time outdoors so please feel free to leave wellies and raincoats in school for the colder months – again please clearly label these items.
  • Your child will be given a reading book and phonics pack every week. Please work through this at home and bring it back to school everyday.
  • Please ensure you check SEESAW for all other information, photographs and announcements.
