Starting Arrangements

At Worle Village Primary School we aim to ensure our new arrivals settle happily and quickly into school life. At first your child will attend on a part-time basis. We appreciate this may initially be awkward for you to organise but we strongly believe that this gives all children the best way of gradually adapting to this new setting and its new routines and has proven very successful at ensuring a smooth transition into school.

Please see the timetable below for all children:

 

DateTimings
Monday 9th - Friday 13th September 2024

Mornings 9.00am-12.00pm

(stay for lunch, until 12.45pm on Friday 13th)

Monday 16th - Tuesday 17th September 2024Afternoons - 1.15pm-3.15pm
Wednesday 18th - Friday 20th September 2024Lunch and afternoon - 11.45am-3.15pm
Monday 23rd September 2024Start full-time*

 

* Full-time attendance is dependent on both the Head of School and class teacher’s assessment of a child’s happy and successful settling into school and their ability to cope with full-time education.

 

On arrival at the school with your child please use the dedicated reception class entrance gate on Hill Road for drop-offs and pick-ups.

Please do not make an application before the summer holidays as your application will be cancelled by North Somerset.

 

Aspens

School meals are provided by our catering company Aspens and we use an online ordering system called Select. Parents/carers are responsible for ordering their child’s school meals. Children are encouraged to have a school meal using their universal free school meal or free school meal entitlements but can also have a packed lunch from home if preferred. Select allows parents to see the menu and order each day according to the menu or instead send their child with a packed lunch. Your child's code will be provided at the welcome meeting so you can set-up your child's account ready for September.

Communication

We use a number of platforms to communicate with parents/carers in the fastest and most efficient way, on top of other daily forms of communication:

SchoolPing

This is an online platform, with a dedicated app, which we use to send messages, letters and forms and for the booking of parents evenings. The best way to use SchoolPing is to download the app. Login details will be provided once your child starts school.

School Gateway

This is an online platform, with a dedicated app, which we use to take payments and bookings for school trips, events and clubs such as Breakfast and Wraparound Care. The best way to use School Gateway is to download the app. Login details will be provided once your child starts school.

Facebook

The school has its own dedicated Facebook page for sharing news, updates and notices. You can follow us @Worle Village Primary School.

Wraparound Care

We are proud to offer a full wraparound care provision with Breakfast Club from 7.45am and After School Club until 5.30pm. Bookings can be self-managed by parents/carers using our School Gateway app. We also accept a range of childcare vouchers including the Governments Childcare Choices scheme as payment.
