Reception and Nursery Places for September 2019

Parents can now apply for Reception and Nursery places for September 2019. Applications need to be made online through the Council Website, Please be aware that even if your child currently attends the Raglan Nursery you still need to apply for a Reception place for next year. Tours of the school can be Booked Online

Winter Weather

We have started to encounter the colder weather and on some occasions, we may need to restrict access to the playgrounds for safety reasons. Please note the following:

We are not able to use rock salt on the Year 5/6 playground (due to the safety surfacing) so when this is slippery access will be restricted. Junior Pupils can enter via the Raglan Road (old office) entrance and Infant children will need to enter via either Amberley or Wellington Road entrances.

If the Year 3/4 playground is too slippery, this will be closed and pupils are asked to enter via the back door in the Millennium Garden close to the Office.

If access to the Infant playground is slippery then we will salt a path to the nearest door(s).

Staff will be around to direct and advise you on these days.

Should we encounter weather that restricts our ability to open the school (usually due to insufficient staff), then we will advise as soon as possible via:

Donations

If you have any unwanted dressing up clothes could you please donate them to the school office. We would like them for golden time in the infants. We also welcome any costumes from theme days that could be used in the future.

Welfare Clothing

If your child has been sent home with a change of clothes could you please ensure these have been returned. The school are running low on supplies.
