Welcome back to the Autumn Term in Year 6. We hope you had a good holiday and enjoyed the summer break. For those of you who do not know us, our names are Mr Somerville and Mr Critchlow and we will be the Year 6 teachers this year. We are looking forward to working with your children and enabling them to succeed to the best of their abilities. Please read the following letter carefully as it will give you all the information you need for this term.

Homework

Homework will be handed out on Fridays to be returned the following Friday.

PE

PE will be on Fridays for Oak & Olive class, taken by a sports coach. Children need to have a full school PE kit, which includes shorts, white t-shirt and plimsolls. ALL kits need to be fully labelled with your child’s name and year group.

Reading

Children should be reading every day for at least 15 – 25 minutes. All of High View are encouraged to use our school library and be changing their books weekly.

Attendance and punctuality

Please make sure your child attends school regularly and on time every day.  Year 6 pupils are to line up in the playground at 8:45 every morning. At the end of the school day please collect your child at 3.15pm from the Key Stage 2 playground.

If you would like your child to walk home alone, please write a letter the Head teacher in order to request this stating how your child will get home (walk, bus etc.). The Head teacher will then make a decision and you will be informed.

Please make every effort to collect your child on time.

Any child not collected by 3.25pm will be taken to the office and should be collected from there.

  • Book bags – reminder to bring with them everyday

  • Class Trips – We will no longer be accepting cash or cheques for trips and payment will only be possible using our SIMS Agora online payment system. Your child has a unique payment number which you may have already used to set up online payments for school lunches and after school care. If you have not set up your account, please notify the school office and you will be provided with your child's unique number. If trips do not require payment, you will still need to go online to give permission for your child to attend.

  • Uniform – Please adhere to the High View Uniform code. Monogramed items (jumpers, cardigans and book bags) can be obtained online from www.mapac.com or telephone 01923 255 525. Other standard uniform items can be sourced locally.

  • School dinners – If a child wishes to change from school dinners to packed lunch or vice versa, they may only do so at the beginning of each half term.  Payment should be made online using SIMS Agora. Details can be obtained from the school office.  If any child has been advised by their GP or Health Care Professional to either, follow a special diet; or to avoid certain foods, please contact Edwards and Ward Special Diet and Allergen help line on the details below:
