The Downley School

“Learning, Growing and Succeeding Together”

Year Group Information

Dear Parents/Carers,

Welcome to The Downley School Reception Class area and a new school year. 

Just a reminder that we aim to use the outdoor classroom as much as possible. Please make sure your child comes to school with a named coat every day and, when needed, named gloves, hats etc... Please make sure your child has a waterproof coat and wellies to be kept in school and please make sure these are labelled clearly.

Children are encouraged to bring a water bottle to school so that they have access to water throughout the day whenever they feel thirsty. This should be a clear bottle of plain water with a sports type lid. Please ensure that this is clearly labelled with your child’s name.

If your child is having a packed lunch, please ensure that this lunch does not contain any type of nuts or seeds and that any birthday sweets brought into school are also nut free. Sweets are always given to the children to take home, never eaten in school. Please note there is a ban on kiwi fruit in school due to a child with a severe allergic reaction - please ensure your child's lunch or snack does not include this fruit.

If you have any other queries please don’t hesitate to send a message through the school website.

Yours sincerely

Mrs Scott and Mrs Wilkinson
