Parents often ask how they can help their children before starting school and there are many informal ways in which this can be done.reception class

Be sure first of all, that your child has visited the school and is familiar with its surroundings. In the Summer Term there will be an opportunity for each child to visit and stay at school for a short session. Your ‘welcome’ letter from the Head will have given you further information about this. Your child will also be invited to a Teddy Bear’s picnic with the present Reception Class before the end of term. There is always a parents presentation evening at the beginning of the autumn term. We also visit pre-school placements or invite them to us and we try to release a Yr R teacher to make a home visit to ease the transition to school.

role playTalking to your child is important and encouraging him/her to listen and be observant is most valuable. Try to spend time looking at books and enjoying stories together. In this way a love of books is fostered leading to reading readiness.

There are many opportunities during the day for counting, colour and shape recognition. Opportunities should be given for drawing and colouring making sure that the pencil or crayon is correctly held. It is helpful to explain to your child that he will be part of a group of children and will have to be quiet at times and listen carefully.

Children should practise dressing and undressing themselves, as they will have to do this for PE at school. It is essential that all clothing is marked with the child’s name. We do not expect children to be able to tie their shoelaces at this age but it does help if children can put their shoes and plimsolls on the correct feet.

Parents should talk about using the toilets at school and washing hands. Encourage children to be independent.It is helpful if children are able to use a knife and fork at lunchtime.

Always encourage your child to know that he can ask the teacher for help.

The playground is supervised from 8.45 a.m. each day.
For safety reasons it is important that children do not arrive before this time.
The bell is rung in the playground at 8.55 a.m All children should be in the playground when the bell rings.

On wet days the School will be opened at 8.45a.m. and the children may come
straight into to the hall from the playground where they will be under supervision until the bell is rung at 8.55a.m.
Children are collected at the end of the day from the playground by parents.
For Yr R children this occurs through the classroom door at the front.
Alternative arrangements require a letter to school especially if a different person is collecting your child.

All infant children have a playtime during the morning and afternoon sessions. Junior children have a morning playtime only. The teachers with the help of our teaching assistants supervise these playtimes.


We encourage children to wear school uniform. The children enjoy wearing the school colours, which are grey and dark green. Parents often find it helpful to have school clothes. ‘Wards’ in the town are the suppliers of Chantry uniform. The PTA has an established ‘second hand’ school uniform shop, which opens from 3.00p.m. on the lst Wednesday of each month. Please label all uniform with your child’s name. Book bags are also available to purchase from the foyer office.

Clothing and Footwear
Pupils need, for reasons of safety and hygiene, to be able to change for PE into green shorts, white T-shirt and plimsolls. Infant children appreciate elastic sided plimsolls, as they are easier and quicker to put on/off, without laces. These items should be placed in a marked bag. The children can keep the PE bag on their cloakroom coat hook and taken home at holiday time to wash and return to school. Again would you please help your child by clearly marking all articles of clothing including wellingtons. Sensible flat shoes are necessary for school as there are a number of steps inside and outside the building.

We are always grateful to receive old shirts and blouses. These are sewn up and elastic is put in the cuffs to make them into useful overalls.


At Chantry the National Curriculum is implemented. Careful long, medium and short term planning is undertaken to ensure that the teaching and learning in our school is effective.

The following are some of our educational aims and objectives for every child at Chantry Community Primary School.

a) Continuity and progression.
b) Breadth and balance.
c) Emphasis on first hand experience and a questioning approach.
d) Relevance of the education provided. Firstly in the light of their present experiences, and secondly in the preparation for their future.
e) Development of general qualities, e.g. self-reliance, perseverance, enterprise, independence, self discipline, social responsibilities, harmony, and socialisation.

In Yr R we follow the Foundation Stage curriculum and will share this with parents at parents meetings and during the year.

The Literacy Framework and the Numeracy Strategy
In line with all other schools, Chantry introduced the Literacy Hour in September 1998, and introduced the Numeracy Strategy in September 1999. Various meetings and workshops across the year will provide you with more information. These are part of the Government’s initiative to raise standards nationwide. Chantry’s SAT results show that we have high standards and expectations. We are committed to providing the best education for each individual child.

Additionally and most importantly we aim to give the children access to an excellent broad and balanced curriculum. Geography, History, Music, Art, PE, Design Technology, Information Technology and Science are all an essential part of our lives at Chantry. We want Chantry children to be participators; people who ‘do’. We encourage sports and drama. We have excellent dramatic productions across the year and participate wholeheartedly and successfully in many inter-school sports as the children get older.

Our over arching principle is to develop children who achieve their potential, have fun learning, participate in the breadth of activities we offer them and know about giving and receiving in a community. Welcome to tomorrows citizens.
