Bere Regis First School
We hope that you all had an enjoyable and relaxing summer break (in spite of the inclement weather!).
We will have many interesting and informative events happening throughout the course of the Autumn Term which will, of course, end with our Christmas festivities. Further details and dates will be sent home with your child in due course.
In the meantime, we are pleased to welcome our new reception class children and their parents together with our new member of staff, Tamara Loakes who will be working with us as a Teaching Assistant.
We are pleased to announce that a new Breakfast Club is open from 7.45 to 8.45 a.m. every morning in the new Ragamuffins building and an After School Club will take place on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons in the main school building from 3.30 - 5.30 p.m. If you would like your child to attend or would like further information about either club then please contact the School Office on (01929) 471334 in the first instance.
The School Day
Morning: 8.55 a m - 12.05 p m
Afternoon: 1.05 p m - 3.15 p m.
The total daily teaching time for KS2, excluding the Act of Worship and breaks, is 4 hours and 45 minutes.
Children should arrive at school between 8.45 and 8.55 a m. Reception class children may be brought into the classroom but older children should be able to enter the school on their own. It is obviously undesirable for classes to be interrupted, if it can be avoided, but it is usually possible to talk to the class teacher or Head before school starts or at 3.30 p m. Parents are asked to bear in mind that the Headteacher is responsible for a class and the secretary’s post is part-time only, so the telephone is not always manned. An answerphone has been installed and is checked regularly for important messages. If a response is required please remember to leave a telephone number where you can be contacted. The best times to phone are before 8.55 a m or after 3.15 p m. The telephone number is Bere Regis (01929) 471334.
School staff cannot be responsible for children arriving before 8.45 a m and parents are expected to collect their children promptly after school.
