Starting School - September 2020

Welcome to Hampton College Primary

Sending your child to school is always a big step and we are delighted that your child will be joining us at Hampton College in September. During the current times of such uncertainty, we are pleased to be welcoming you, your child and your family into our school community.

We are all experiencing unprecedented times, but we would like to assure you that we are still working hard to prepare for next year and to make your child’s transition into primary school as smooth as possible, whilst ensuring that we adhere to current and future government guidance.

Our new intake process will be different to previous years, but we hope that you will understand the changes we have made. The main change that you will see this year is that we are providing the majority of our new intake information online, via our website. Below you will find all of the information and documentation you require.

The New Intake booklet, will give you key information about starting school in September, and the handy checklist on the website will guide you through the various documents and forms that you should read, or will need to complete, before your child starts school.

We are planning to run a series of transition events, either virtually or at school, before September. These will help to prepare you and your child for their reception year and we hope that you are able to join in with these events. We are hoping that further information will be shared in May, both via email and on our website, but we will of course keep you updated.

Our school website, and our newsletters, are a good source of information about our school, so please feel free to browse our website at your leisure. Please also follow us on Facebook.

Once again, a very warm welcome to Hampton College Primary and we look forward to meeting you all later in the year.

  • How can I support my child?

    Is my child ready to start school?

    Four year olds are as different from each other as adults are and not every four year old will be ready to go to school.   This should not be viewed as a reflection on your child or yourself.   There is no such thing as a ‘typical’ four year old; they are all at different stages of development.  


    Why all the fuss?  They are only starting school.

    By the age of four, those children who have been attending pre-school or nursery may be bursting with confidence.  They will have learned many important social,  manipulative, language and matching skills and will be well equipped to start their Reception year at primary school.  However, if the transfer to school is not handled carefully and sensitively, this confidence may disappear and the child might suffer a setback in what should have been a natural and positive process.  It is very important to each child that we, as parents/carers and teachers, make their start to school a smooth and happy one.  We want each child to come willingly and happily to school.  They will be unable to do this if too much pressure is put upon them before they start.  It is important to avoid saying things like “you’ll be able to read and write soon now you’re starting school” as this can make children feel anxious.  It is very easy for young children to acquire fears and misconceptions.  Some children can start school expecting to be able to read after their first day, while others worry about what will happen if they can’t learn to read.  
     

    Does my child have to begin full time? 

    Your child will start school in September on a part-time basis in the first instance.  This will help the children to settle into their new school routines, including meeting their teachers and teaching assistants, adapting to life in their new classroom and outdoor area and getting to know their new classmates.  Some of you may have doubts as to whether your child should begin school on a full time basis after this or whether part-time only would be more appropriate.  The change from three to four pre-school sessions to five full days at school is a big step for any four year old.  It may be that five half-days may be more productive for some children.  If you or the class teacher feels that your child is not ready for full time schooling after their transitional period, then a part time option can be explored.  If this is felt to be the case, it will be a decision discussed and agreed by the parents/carers and the class teacher together, in consultation with the Senior Leadership Team.
     

    The first few weeks at school

     We would like your child to settle into school life and the routines at Hampton College Primary as quickly and happily as possible, therefore we would appreciate your support in establishing routines as early as possible.  We have found the following strategies have benefited children and parents in the past: 

    • Dropping your child off on time allows them to come into the classroom feeling relaxed and ready for the day’s activities. 
    • Leaving your child in our care as soon as they have settled enables your child to begin their morning’s activities and build relationships with their peers and school staff.  It is surprising how quickly the most distressed child settles after their parents/carers have left.  
    • Arriving at school at least five minutes before the end of your child’s session to collect your child promptly. 
    • Talking to your child about their day and being as encouraging as possible, Tapestry is a fantastic resource for this.  
    • Sharing any concerns you may have with your school staff as soon as possible – we operate an ‘open door’ policy at Hampton College Primary and we are always willing to discuss any queries or concerns you may have. 
    • Ensuring that all your child’s clothing and personal belongings, e.g. shoes, water bottle, book bag are clearly labelled with your child’s name.  This will ensure that any misplaced items are returned to your child as quickly as possible and therefore minimise their distress.  
    • Helping your child to find their apple with their name at school to enable them to feel a sense of ownership of their environment.

     

    What does my child need to take to school?

    Please ensure that EVERYTHING that is brought into school is named.

     

    Every day

    Every day your child should bring the following items to school:

    • Book bag (these shall be provided in September once all forms have been returned)
    • Reading book (these will be issued during the autumn term)
    • Water bottle
    • Lunchbox (for children who are not going to have a school lunch)
    • Appropriate outdoor clothing - coat, hat, gloves and scarf in winter; sun hat and sunglasses in the summer

     

    Every week

    At the beginning of the week your child should bring the following items to school:

    • PE kit (the Reception staff will notify you when PE sessions will begin later in the Reception year)

     

    Keep in school

    We would advise that children keep the following items in school at all times:

    • A bag of spare clothes (including spare underwear, spare clothes should be replaced as and when they are used) these do not need to be school uniform.
    • Wellington boots for outdoor use.

     

  • The School Day

    A typical school day

    Our school day starts at 8.55am however our gates open at 8.40am, we have an 'open door' policy which means parents/carers can come into the classrooms and settle the children and talk to the adults in the rooms.  


    At 8.55am the register is called and children are asked what they would like for dinner.  During our morning carpet session the children practise their mathematical skills.


    Children are then given an extended period of continuous provision, here they can explore, investigate, create, practise and refine their chosen skills with their friends whilst the adults observe, question and join in.  Throughout the morning the children have access to a snack and their water bottles.  During this period adults use their previous knowledge of the children to target children within their play as well as groups of children through the use of adult-led work, here children are asked to come and complete a task with a specified adult.
     

    Towards the end of the morning children take part in a discrete phonics session followed by shared reading known as ELLA (Extended Literacy Learning Activities) time.
     

    At 12.00noon children will go to the lunch hall for lunch, at the beginning of the year the children then come back to the reception setting to play, as they move throughout the year they will go onto the playground to play.

     

    At 1.00pm the children register for the afternoon session, we have a carpet session based on the week's learning and then continue with continuous provision.

     

    At the end of the day the children share in a story with the adults in the setting before getting ready for home time.

     

    Our school gates open at 3.15pm and school finishes at 3.25pm, all children are dismissed from the Red Apple classroom.  Please note In accordance with the EYFS safeguarding policy we must have written consent for who can collect your child(ren) whilst they are in reception.  If we are unsure will shall always check, please be patient with us if dismissing takes a little longer while we ensure that these safeguarding procedures are followed.

     

    Where will my child work and play?

    The Foundation Stage is made up of three stimulating learning environments, which all children can freely negotiate; the Red Apple classroom, the Green Apple classroom and the garden. In the Red Apple classroom there is a strong emphasis on creativity and expressive arts and in the Green Apple classroom, investigation and exploration of the world around us.  Literacy and numeracy flow in and out of both rooms, and children are taught phonics and mathematics every day.  Outside, children are able to access all areas of the Foundation Stage curriculum.  We are strong advocates of a child’s right to play, and as such, delight in observing and challenging children to grow as independent, motivated and critical thinkers.

    Who will work and play with my child?

    Your child will come into contact with a number of adults whilst they are at school – their teachers, teaching assistants (TA), EPSCo, midday supervisors, office staff, cleaning staff etc, as well as a number of other staff who work mainly within the secondary phase at Hampton College. 

     

    The main people in a Reception child’s day at school are their teachers, TAs and our EPSCo.

     

    Each child will have a class teacher who is responsible for that class.  The teacher will plan activities; prepare resources; assess and monitor your child’s progress and development;  report to you at Parents’ Evenings and by writing a school report; be responsible for your child’s welfare and nurture your child whilst they are in their Reception class.  As well as their own teacher, the children will work closely with the other Reception teacher during their Reception year.  The class teacher will act as the first point of contact for parents/carers.

     

    We are lucky to have a number of fantastic teaching assistants (TA) who work alongside the teacher and children in every aspect of the school day from preparing learning resources to contributing to assessments; from meeting and greeting parents/carers to working with groups of children.  TAs will also be responsible for your child’s welfare and nurture your child whilst they are in their Reception class. 

     

    Our Engagement & Pastoral Support Co-ordinator will also provide help and support to the teachers, TAs, children and our families, particularly around pastoral or behavioural support for the children.  She will also help your child if they are struggling with the transition to school and is also a point of contact for parents/carers.

     

    Early Years Foundation Stage guidance makes it statutory for all children in Reception classes to have a key person.  The role of the key person is to support not only your child but you and your family as well.  Research has suggested that having a key person enables a child to build up a strong relationship with a particular adult, which in turn enables them to feel safe and secure and have someone they know they can depend upon.  Each child in both Reception classes will be assigned their key person in September.  This person is either one of the class teachers or a TA.  You will be informed of the name of your child’s key person after they have started school.

     

    Lunchtimes

    Lunchtime for Reception children is from 12.00noon until 1.00pm.  In the early days, our Reception children will go into the hall for lunch early (from 11.45am) and some of the older children will go into the hall with our new Reception children and assist them with collecting their cutlery, getting their meal and tidying away after they have eaten.  

     
    Cucina Menu Options

    Cucina, our school catering providers, serve hot and cold options in our primary phase hall on a daily basis.  There are always meat and vegetarian options available and we cater for children with special dietary requirements, food intolerances or allergies - please ask at the school office for further details and ensure any dietary information regarding your child is included on our admission form.   The current Cucina menu is available on our website.  During the morning register the children talk about the menu options for that day and are asked to choose their meal, we believe that this increases great independence in our children and promotes children to try new foods.  However, some parents want their children to have their hot meal at school, if this is the cases please speak to your child’s class teacher.


    Free School Meals

    From September 2014, as part of a new Government initiative, all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to Universal Free School Meals.  A main meal, dessert and drink will be provided every day with a meat or vegetarian option.  For those parents/carers on a low income who are entitled to claim for Pupil Premium Free School Meals, it is important for the school that you still claim for the school to get its correct allocation of Pupil Premium funding.  Eligibility for Pupil Premium funding can trigger £1,345 per child with an entitlement to free school meals, as well as other funding.  If you have any queries about your entitlement please do not hesitate to speak to our office staff. 


    'My Child At School' — paying for your meals online (Years 3—6)

    Once Universal Free School Meals is finished (the end of Year 2), we use an online meal payment system, 'My Child At School', to enable you to pay for your child’s meals in advance.  Further information regarding 'My Child At School', including log-in details, will be sent home in September.

     

    Going out to play at lunchtime

    In the early days, our Reception children will spend their lunchtimes in the Reception classrooms and garden, with familiar members of staff and some of our older children acting as Reception buddies. As the children become more settled into their routine at school, our lunchtime supervisors will take the Reception children outside, where they will be able to play on the playground, in the ball zone, on the school field (on warm, dry days) or on the Trim Trails.  Our Lunchtime Co-ordinator oversees a team of lunchtime staff, who are all there to keep the children happy and safe at lunchtime.


    Snack time

    During the morning session your child will be provided with a piece of fruit or vegetable every day.  Your child does not need to bring a snack to school from home.  If your child is allergic or intolerant to any particular fruit or vegetables please make this clear on their admission form.

     

    School milk

    Milk is provided free of charge for all four year olds and can be purchased for children from the age of five.  Milk will be given to children whose parents/carers have applied for it during our snack time.  Please note that applications and payment for milk should be sent directly to Cool Milk and not sent to the school.  You can apply for milk for your child via our school milk provider’s website:  www.coolmilk.com.

     

    Water bottles

    We encourage you to send your child to school every day with water.  This should be in a named clear plastic bottle, preferably with a sports cap, and will be sent home at the end of each day.  Your child’s water bottle will be available for them to drink from in the classroom at all times and can be filled up in the classroom during the day.

  • My Child's Learning

    How will I be kept informed about my child’s progress?


    Autumn Term Parents’ Consultation

    Our first parents’ consultation will be held in the autumn term, usually in October or November.  You will be able to arrange an appointment with your child’s class teacher during the day to discuss how your child has settled into school and also spend some time watching them play and interacting with their learning.  There will be an opportunity for you to look through your child’s learning journal and ask any questions you may have.

     

    Spring Term Parents’ Consultation

    Our second parents’ consultation will be held in the spring term, usually in February or March.  Again you will be able to arrange an appointment with your child’s class teacher, however this time the appointment will be after school.  At this consultation you will be able to discuss your child’s attainment and progress so far and any areas which require some development during the rest of the year. There will be another opportunity for you to look through your child’s learning journal.


    End of Year Report

    Towards the end of the year you child will receive a written report about your child’s attainment in all seven areas of learning, along with comments about the characteristics of effective learning.  You will also receive information about whether your child has met the expected level of achievement for the end of the Reception year in all seventeen early learning goals, has exceeded the expected level or is emerging towards the expected level. This report will be sent home in June or July.
     

    Summer Term Open Evening 

    During the summer term, you will be invited to a more informal open evening which will enable you to come into school to talk to your child’s class teacher more informally about their Reception year and also meet their new teacher for Year one.  This Open Evening is held in July.

     
    Stay and Play sessions

    Throughout the year we will be holding regular ‘Stay and Play’ sessions where you will be invited into school to spend an hour with your child.  These sessions are designed to enable you to play alongside your child whilst also giving you the opportunity to build relationships with other parents. The dates will be advertised nearer the time for parents and you are welcome to attend as many, or as few sessions, as you are able to.  We suggest choosing a few dates from the selection and informing your child so that they know when you will be joining them.

     
    Open Door Policy

    At Hampton College Primary we operate an ‘open door’ policy which encourages parents/carers to come into the classroom and speak to their child’s class teacher or TA at the beginning or end of the school day.  Obviously the beginning of the school day is a very busy time for us as we are encouraging the children to settle into their morning routine, so please speak to our EPSCo in the first instance if you have any matters which may require more discussion or make an appointment to see the teacher at the end of the day or another mutually convenient time.

     

    How will my child’s progress be monitored at school?

    Observations

    During the school day the children will be able to choose from a large range of child initiated or adult led activities.  Whilst the children are playing and learning at these activities the teachers and TAs will be observing the children and recording their observations in different ways.  These observations will feed into the teachers’ assessments of each child, which will be monitored throughout the year.

     
    Baseline assessment

    During the first six weeks of your child’s time in our Reception classes, the teachers and TAs will use their observations to contribute towards their initial baseline assessment of each child’s achievement at the beginning of the Reception year.  We have chosen a baseline assessment  model which is based on teachers’ knowledge of our children and their professional judgements, rather than children completing a ‘test’.  Whilst the Department for Education are currently reviewing national guidance around Reception baseline assessments, we believe it is important to identify children’s strengths and next steps on entry to school as we always have done at Hampton College Primary.
     

    Electronic Learning Journal – 'Tapestry'

    During the Reception year, our teachers and TAs will collate information about your child using a safe and encrypted online electronic learning journal.  This document is a celebration of all their effort, progress and attainment over the year and will contain a selection of photographs, notes, observations and work samples.  We welcome any observations that you make of your child at home to add to the richness of the document, and our wealth of knowledge about how your child is developing.  Parents will be able to access their child’s learning journal via a secure log in, please complete your Tapestry form with your information.
     

    Snapshot observations

    Snapshot observations are short snippets of information which record what your child does or says whilst they are playing and learning.  These snapshot observations will be recorded in your child’s electronic learning journal.  
     

    Photographs and videos

    Photographs and videos are extremely useful assessment tools in Reception, as they record what a child is doing whilst playing and learning. Any photographs or videos used in your child’s electronic learning journal will be annotated and stored securely online in their learning journal.
     

    Examples of activities

    Some activities the children complete will have a recorded outcome e.g. a letter to Santa, a   shopping list or a painting of a butterfly. These examples of activities will be annotated, photographed and added to your child’s electronic learning journal, as well as in their Reflective Learning Journey.
     

    Adult-led activities

    Some activities which are adult led or adult guided will be recorded in the teacher’s adult led  folder and these notes will be used to assist the teachers in monitoring your child’s progress during their Reception year.

     

     

     

  • The PTA

     

    Who wants to join our school PTA?
    What is it for?  You say, backing away.
    The short answer is fundraising, pennies and pounds,
    The school’s tight stretched budget can’t always go round.
    We’ll buy extra resources, for learning and play,
    To enrich and enhance our children’s school day.
     
    Who wants to join our school PTA?
    What do you do?  You gingerly say.
    Well, we run termly discos, car boots, Autumn fete.
    Cake sales, fun days, we’ve a lot on our plate!
    We serve teas and coffees at most school events,
    On baking cakes and biscuits much time is spent.
     
    Who wants to join our school PTA?
    Is it all mothers’ meetings?  You nervously say.
    It’s true that we chatter at the school gate,
    Lots of business gets sorted around half past eight.
    But we really are a very mixed bunch,
    Business people, professionals, and ladies that lunch,
    You don’t have to be female to be part of our club.
     
    So, who wants to join our school PTA?
    I’ve heard it’s quite cliquey, as a last ditch you say.
    No, not in the slightest, we welcome everyone,
    There’s a lovely team spirit, it’s hard work but fun.
    Between staff and parents, we strengthen the link.
    Are you interested? Will you join us? What do you think?
     
    If you’re convinced or just curious about what we do each year,
    Come along to the meetings, there’s more to see and hear!

  • Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

    What if…? Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

     

    How will… the school communicate with parents?

    As well as discussions with your child’s class teacher there will be many other ways in which the school will communicate with you.

    • At the beginning of the year a parents’ calendar will be sent out to all parents giving details of dates of forthcoming events in the school year. 
    • A primary phase fortnightly newsletter will be sent out with key information and updates for parents. 
    • Letters will be sent out as/when necessary to advise parents about specific events or school information.
    • Reception newsletters will be sent home regularly containing information about what the children have been exploring in school.  This newsletters will also contain ideas for home learning or supporting activities to complete at home.

     

    We are increasingly sending more correspondence home electronically, we use Bromcom our Management Information System (MIS) to do this.  Bromcom is an online service which allows us to send letters and information direct to parents/carers by email, meaning that you receive information from the school in a reliable and efficient manner which we believe helps improve our communication with you.  Bromcom is GDPR compliant and guarantees that all information you provide is kept private and will not be passed onto any other organisation.   

     

    We will send you an invitation to register with Bromcom in September.  Once you have received this you are able to set up your Bromcom account and receive our communications.  Please remember to check your SPAM/JUNK folders regularly in case Bromcom messages are incorrectly delivered there.

     

    Paper copies of any correspondence sent via Bromcom are also available from the primary phase school office.

     

    You will also find an electronic copy of all our letters and newsletters on our school website.

     

    What if… any of my personal details change?

    It is important to make sure that we have up-to-date contact details and medical information for your child.  Please make sure that you let the primary phase school office know immediately if your contact details or any other information concerning your child changes during their time at Hampton College Primary.  You can email any changes to primary@hamptoncollege.org.uk.

     

    What if… I am going to be late to collect my child?

    Please ensure that you telephone the school office on 01733 246821 to advise us if you will be late to collect your child.  If you have arranged for another adult to collect your child on your behalf we must have their details on your child’s Pupil Collection Permission Form and they must be aware of your chosen password which will enable the Reception staff to release your child into their care.

     

    What if... my child is unwell?

    If your child is unwell, please ring our primary phase office on 01733 246821 and leave a message on our voicemail before 8.30am in the morning.  We will then inform your child’s class teacher.  All parents/carers will be contacted by telephone if we have not received a message from you.  You will also need to notify the school on each day your child is absent.  On your child’s return to school, we will also require a letter from parents/carers explaining the reason for any absences. 

     

    Please do not send your child to school if you are in doubt about their fitness, particularly where an infection is suspected.  If your child has been sick, or has suffered from bouts of diarrhoea, they need to remain at home for 48 hours before they can return to school. 

     

    What if… my child requires medication in school?

    If, following a bout of illness, your child requires medication (e.g. antibiotics) this can be administered in school by our staff.  We can only accept medication which has been prescribed by a doctor to be administered four times a day.  Medication must be handed in to the school office in the morning, in the original prescription bottle.  You will then need to complete a form to give your consent for the medication to be administered in school.  If you have any questions regarding medication in school, please speak to Mrs McAlister, Mrs Burdett or Mrs Carr.

     

    What if… my child needs to be absent during term time?

    You may be aware of some important changes that have come into operation regarding authorisation of holidays and time off during school time.

     

    Changes to legislation mean that family holidays are no longer permitted as an exceptional circumstance and we would ask that you think carefully before you decide to take your child out of school.  Any requests should be made using the correct form, which is available from the school office.

     

    A written response will be sent to you advising you whether or not the requested absence has been authorised. 

     

    What if… my child wants to cycle or scoot to school?

    We actively encourage our children to walk, cycle and scoot to school.  If your child does bring a bike or scooter to school it can be stored securely, in one of our bike sheds, for the duration of the school day.  To avoid accidents, bikes and scooters should be walked, rather than ridden, across the school playground before and after school.

     

    What if… I need to drive my child to school?

    Many of you will be aware that traffic is a serious problem as our children arrive and depart each day.  There is very limited car parking available in the public car park next to Hampton Library and Leisure Centre on Clayburn Road and therefore we would encourage parents/carers to walk with their child to school where possible.  Please discuss road and car park safety with your child before they start school and be vigilant on the school run.   

             

    The car park at the front of the school is for staff, visitor and disabled parking only so that we can ensure the safety of all of our children coming to and from school.

     

    What if… I have any further questions?

    Please do not hesitate to contact us via email primary@hamptoncollege.org.uk or call the school office on 01733 246821.
