FAQs

What is the plan for transition into Reception?

 

Sadly, the physical transition programme of previous years cannot be completed this year.  A virtual transition programme is being put together. We aim for this to include a virtual tour and a virtual one to one discussion with your child's new class teacher. Other materials to support transition are in the process of being created. 

 

What will arrangements for September look like? 

 

Subject to further guidance we will open the school full time to all pupils as in previous years. If we are allowed to, families will be permitted to send children in on a part time basis if they wish to initially.  

 

Where do I purchase school uniform and what is required?

 

You are able to find and purchase the recommended uniform from The School Shop in Evesham, the link is below:

 https://www.theschoolshopuk.co.uk/product-category/cropthorne-first-school/

 

Other school items that are not badged, can of course, be purchased from elsewhere.

 

 

Will my child have hot dinners at lunchtime when they start school?

 

Hot Dinners are provided by an external provider, Pershore High School. We encourage as many children as possible to try the lunches available. You will be sent a link and activation code to a site called Parent Pay where you will be able to select meals for your child for the days you wish them to have these.

Of course if you child does not wish to have a hot meal at lunchtime there is the option to select a packed lunch or alternatively send in one from home.

These meals are free under the Government Universal Free Meal Scheme for children in Year R through to Year 2.

All children eat together regardless of whether they have a packed or hot dinner.

What before school and afterschool provision do you provide?

 

We provide a Breakfast Club from 8.00 every morning. The cost is £3.50 a session. 

We also provide afterschool provision, Monday through to Thursday from 3.00 until 4.15. The cost is £5.00 a session.

 

Each month, we issue a booking form that needs to be completed and paid for 1 month in advance. For example, for September the booking form will be issued in August. You can make payment by cheque until we are able to establish you on our online payment facility called Payment4Schools.
