Leigh Primary School

Panda Class

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.

Organisation

Class Teacher: Mrs Suzanne Barber

Teaching Assistant: Mrs Paula Marsh

Timetable

Children can enter the classroom from 8:30 via the back playground. We encourage the children to put away their own belongings. Children will join the rest of the school for break time at 10:25/30 until 10:45. From the 13th of September the children will eat lunch at 12:00 and from the 20th they will stay all day until the are collected from the back playground at 15:10. 

Equipment

We would kindly ask that the children have a complete PE kit in school and bring 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.

Medication

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.

Learning

All information on your child's curriculum and letters can be found on the Tapestry Platform which will open on the 13th of September. You will receive a letter regarding how the platform works on the 10th of September.  To provide user support there will be a drop-in session on the 22nd of September from 15:30 in the Panda Classroom.

Forest School

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.
