Kingfisher Award Scheme
Children at Newton Poppleford Primary School learn about vital link between food, farming and wildlife as part of 25th Kingfisher Award Scheme.
The 10k for £10k Run! on Saturday 24th March raised a staggering £3,500. Thank you!!
UPDATED - Here is a summary of the changes happening due to the rebuilding work.
- UPDATE! We have a new entrance, with a temporary gate, that is now located a little further up School Lane from the main entrance. To the right of the gate is a speaker system linked to the School Office. Pressing the button will activate a receiver. People in the School Office will be able to speak to you and open the gate. When you hear the gate mechanism move, please push open the gate and come in. If there is nobody in the school office, you will have to ring either of the phone numbers below.
- Breakfast Club and Twilight will now be in the main school hall. If you are bringing children in for breakfast PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A MOBILE PHONE, as you will need to either call school or the twilight mobile for a member of staff to allow your children in.
- At the start of the school day registration will still be at 9:00 am. Children in Reception and Year 1 will need to use the entrance by the Reception classroom at the start of the school day. The entrance will be open from 8:50 am and children will go straight into their class.
- Children in Years 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 will need to use the new entrance at the start of the school day. It will be open from 8:45 am and children will go straight to their classes.
- Lunchtimes- times for these will also change to be 11:45 – 1:00 for KS1 and 12:30 – 1:30 for KS2.
- During the build, we will not have access to the sports field. Therefore, we are looking at using the field in the village for Years 3,4,5 and 6 to do P.E. together on a Wednesday afternoon.
- At the end of the school day, the gate will be open for parents from 3 pm. Children from Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will be brought out to the playground at 3:10 pm Children from Year 3 and Year 4 will be brought out to the playground at 3:15 pm. Children from Year 5 and Year 6 will be brought out to the playground at 3:20 pm. To help with congestion could we please ask for parents without older siblings to leave promptly.
