We are introducing a new policy regarding PE Kit. Children will need to come into school wearing their PE kit on their PE days, which are listed below.

Year 4 – Monday and Wednesday

This will maximise the time spent in PE by cutting out time spent changing, it also means PE kits can be washed weekly, as opposed to termly, which is more hygienic. This policy encourages children to wear the correct kit, this consists of a school logoed navy t-shirt, navy shorts or navy/black tracksuit trousers (not leggings) and a navy/black jumper along with trainers to be worn to school and plimsolls/indoor shoes in case PE is in the hall.

If your child does not turn up at school in their kit on their specified PE day they will be unable to take part in PE sessions. It is a legal requirement of the curriculum for children to take part in PE weekly.

Please visit our policy page to read our uniform policy.


Homework is given to the children each Friday. Homework is expected to be completed by the following Wednesday. Work should be completed at home by completing the sheet or writing the work in their own notebook at home.


See our English page for Reading updates.

See our library page for recommended reading lists.


Currently we are working on ensuring that all the Year 3 & 4 Statutory Words are learnt.  A copy of each weeks spellings will be given to children each Friday. Children will focus on a group of ten each week that they will practice in school and at home.  They will be tested on a Friday.

Times Tables

By the beginning of Year 4, pupils should know their 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 8x and 10x tables confidently. Please help your child to practise their times tables and corresponding divisions at the end of year 4 pupils should know times table 2 – 12 confidently.

Start of the day

The school gates open at 8.30am, where the children are welcomed on to the playground to talk with friends or walk the daily mile, before the start of the school day at 8:45am.

Break time

Children may bring in a healthy snack to eat at morning break. Milk is available for those who have signed up for it.


Children can bring a packed lunch to school or sign up for a hot meal provided by Farm Kitchen. Please contact our school office for more information on how to sign up for school lunches.

End of the day

School finishes at 3.15pm

Supporting Your Child At Home

You will find useful information and resources to help support your child at home on our curriculum pages.

Parents Meeting Teachers

Parents’ Evenings are held in the Lent term. This will consist of a 10 minute appointment with your child’s teacher to discuss progress.

During Advent Term a brief written report will be sent home.

During Pentecost 1 parents are invited in to look at books with their children and teachers will be available to answer any questions.

During Pentecost 2 a full Academic Report will be sent home.


As we are a Healthy Eating school we prefer that sweets and cakes are not sent into school. This includes birthday cakes.

If you wish, donate a book to your child’s class and write a birthday message inside. Check the Recommended Reads for Year 4 for any ideas.
