The aim of this section of the website is to provide parents with useful information about what your children are learning in school and how you, as a parent, can support this learning at home.

Below are a selection of leaflets taken from various sources, which give advice and ideas on how you can help your child with their spelling, writing, numeracy and computer (ICT) skills at home.

None of the ideas require specialist resources or knowledge and are just fun ways to encourage your child to learn and most importantly, ENJOY themselves and their work!

The ideas should ideally be used every now and again to fill a spare 5 or 10 minutes during weekends or school holidays (when your worst nightmare can be just one phrase...'I'm bored!').

Enjoy them and have FUN, FUN, FUN!

The P.E. kit consists of the following items of clothing :-

  • black shorts and a white tee-shirt
  • Plimsolls
  • Old track-suit for outdoor games

 P.E. kit should be placed in a drawstring bag (school logo ones available) and placed on your child's peg. PLEASE only drawstring bags as we have limited space.

 

 

The wearing of a uniform cannot be enforced but we like to think that it promotes the identity of the school and we therefore encourage parents to buy it.

Prices for uniform can be obtained from the office.

Uniform is generally available to purchase at the school office. School uniform order forms will be sent out during Summer 6 term, ready for the new school year in September.

Please note that all items of clothing must be labelled with the child’s name.

Children normally transfer to Brimington Junior School but a formal application has to be made by parents.

Parents are encouraged to apply on-line for a Junior place. Information packs are sent out to all our Y2 children in November each year. Applications can be made from November through to the middle of January.

For further information about applying for a Junior place -
