Welcome to Panda Class!
We are very excited to get to know you and your children. Below you will find information which will guide you through your child’s first term at Leigh Primary School.
Class Teacher: Mrs Suzanne Barber
Class Teaching Assistant: Mrs Paula Marsh
Class Learning Support Assistants - Mrs Green and Mrs Punnett
Children can enter the classroom from 8:30 via the back playground. We encourage the children to put away their own belongings. Once children begin staying full time they are collected from the back playground at 15:10.
We would kindly ask that the children have some spare clothes in case of an accident and their bag each day with their snack, drink and lunchbox - if they are having packed lunch. When the children begin taking home books they will need to bring their reading pack each day as well. Please ensure all of your child's belongings are clearly named. PE days will be confirmed by the class teacher through Google Classroom.
If your child required medication a form must be completed at the school office so the school has clear direction on how and when to administer. Please hand any medication directly to a member of staff rather than your child so we can store it correctly and securely. We are more than happy to help if your child needs medication given for a short period such as antibiotics - again we just need a form completed and the medication.
All information on your child's curriculum and letters can be found on the Google Platform which parents will receive letters about at the start of term. For user support please see your child's class teacher who will be happy to help you.

Please ensure that your child brings in warm clothes and are appropriately dressed for the weather that day. Children MUST have a pair of wellies in school to wear. Please do not provide them with clothing that you are unhappy to get muddy or dirty. Forest school is all about getting muddy!

A Final Note from the Panda Class team
We hope your child has the most enjoyable year but if there is ever a concern with their social or academic needs, please do not hesitate to contact the school through the office and use 'FAO - Panda Class' in the subject bar. We are of course available to talk in the morning and afternoons during drop off and pick up times too.
