Due to our current Risk Assessment, we will not allow parents and carers on site in the mornings. There will be a member of staff for your child's class on the main gates which will be open from 8.40am.
However, at the end of the school day, the gates will be open from 3.05pm and we invite parents and carers to walk up to the playgrounds and wait by the classroom doors, where children will be dismissed.
Year 3 children will be dismissed from the double doors by the main hall. Year 1 children from the double doors to the KS1 library.
The School Day
School starts at 8.55am and the doors open at 8.40am to allow children to get settled into class. Doors are closed at 8.50am and after that, children will have to come in through the office.
Reception to Year 6 children take one hour for their lunch between 11.30am and 1.30pm, as we continue to stagger lunches to keep numbers low in the halls. All years have a 15 minute break during the morning and Key Stage 1 have a short break in the afternoon.
School finishes at 3.15pm.
Our Nursery has two sessions Monday to Friday during term time. From 8.30am to 11.30am and 12:10pm to 3:10pm.
For health and safety, your pet dogs are not allowed on the school grounds and vehicles may only be driven onto the school grounds before 8:30am and after 3:40pm.
At the end of the school day no child will be allowed to go home without an authorised adult. If your child is not collected by 3.30pm we will bring them to wait by the school office. If you know you will be late collecting your child, please let us know. Older children who are allowed to walk home, must have written permission for this.
The school colours are green and grey and we encourage all parents to send their children to school in these colours. This helps to create a Greenhill identity and gives our pupils a sense of belonging. The children do not need to bring any kind of equipment, so no pencil cases are allowed.
Children are expected to wear a combination of the following items:
Children with long hair must keep it tied back. We ask that ear-rings are only simple studs that children can remove themselves (they are not allowed to wear them for PE).
Children are not allowed to wear any make-up (including nail varnish) or jewellery. If children wear a watch, they must be responsible for it themselves.
When choosing clothing, please consider these points:
Uniform can be ordered direct from My Clothing https://myclothing.com/ueslink/5455.school?t=1587473995623
School dinners are free for all children from Reception to Year 2. For children in Nursery the cost of a school dinner will be £2.30 per day £11.50 per week. Year 3 to Year 6 the cost of a school dinner is £2.40 per day £12.00 per week.
