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.

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.
