Welcome to

Newton Farm Nursery, Infant & Junior School

Starting School

What do I need to provide for my child so that s/he is ready for school?

Ensure that your child has the correct uniform including PE kit and footwear, a book bag (Reception to Year 2) and a PE bag, all of which should be marked with your child’s name. Book bags and PE bags, water bottles and school summer caps can be purchased from the school office (office hours are 8:30am-4:00pm).  The water bottle and lunch container should be taken home for cleaning on a daily basis; your child should keep their PE kit in a bag at school and taken home for washing at the end of each half term.

Remember that your child goes outside for breaks and for learning activities so in cold/wet weather ensure that your child has a suitable coat/jacket and shoes.


Is there anything else I can do to prepare my child for school?

Ensure that your child gets a good night’s sleep when s/he has school the following day.

Ensure that your child does NOT wear any jewellery to school other than studs for pierced ears but these must be removed on PE days. If in doubt please ask the teacher which days these are. Also please bear in mind that if you plan to have your child’s ears pierced please have it done at the start of the summer holidays as it usually takes 4-6 weeks for them to heal properly.


What happens if my child loses something?

Lost property in school is gathered in the Welfare Room. This room can be accessed by parents on Wednesdays only - between 9:00-9:30am or 3:00-3:30pm.
