We do not have an afternoon break. We prefer to work through the afternoon and maintain continuity, taking a break when needed. Foundation Stage children access outdoor learning as part of their more integrated day so take a flexible afternoon break.
 
Children are welcome on site from 8.45 am. All teachers will be in their classrooms ready to welcome their class from 8.45 am. Access to Mrs Fullard's and Miss Williams' class will be through the Nursery/Reception Playground and through the classroom external doors. Mrs Kaur's class can enter the building through the brown door in the courtyard near the field at the back of the school. All Y1 children should enter the building through the main front entrance and not through the congested main car park.

Y2 and Y3 children using the Blackwood Road entrance can also enter the building via the main front entrance and make their way to their classrooms. Y2 and Y3 children using Cedar Drive can use the doors to the Y2 block and Y3 block that lead off of the school field. Y4, Y5 and Y6 children can use the external doors nearest to their classroom in the KS2 block. The teachers will be able to greet the children as they arrive and settle everyone down ready for registration and the start of the school day. Any late arrivals will need to make their way to the front entrance and enter the building from there.

With our system there won't be the chance to catch the class teacher for a brief word at 8.45 am. Mike Milne will still be on duty at the Cedar Drive gate and Ms Coles will be by the Blackwood Road entrance. There will be members of staff on all external doors who will take down any messages that parents may wish to relay to specific class teachers. Alternatively, any messages can be written in a short note and put in the children's bags with clear instructions for them to deliver the note to their teacher. Notes and messages can also be left with the School Office team. Emails sent to school are checked throughout the day and can be redirected to specific class teachers as required. Please email at postbox@blackwood.walsall.sch.uk.

 

For safeguarding reasons parents will not be permitted into the building unless invited to an assembly and shown into the school hall via the main entrance.
