Shakespeare is a County Infant School which caters for children from the September after their fourth birthday until the July of the year in which they are seven.
Morning: 8.55 a.m. to 12.00 p.m.
(with 15 minutes mid-morning break).
Afternoon: 1.05 p.m. to 3.15 p.m.
(YR pupils have a 15 minute break)
Children, parents and families are welcomed into the classroom from 8.45 a.m., when the teacher will be available to talk informally with parents. Parents and families are encouraged to spend this time sharing a book or helping their child change their reading book, or looking at their child’s work until the teacher calls the children together for registration at 8.55 a.m, which is when the doors will close. Children arriving after 9.15 am are registered as late which is an unauthorised absence.
At the end of the day parents and families are asked to wait for their children outside the external classroom door. Children are taught to come straight back into class if their parent is not there to collect them.
The school office is open from 8.30 a.m. - 4.30 p.m.
Our School Induction Programme
Children due to start school in the September are invited to attend a programme of induction activities. This allows the children to become familiar with the school, meet some new friends and experience some stay and play sessions. Parents meanwhile; have a chance to learn alongside their children and then listen to a speaker who will give information about the school.
SHINE Shakespeare Infant Events
Is the way in which we raise funds for the children. A small team of people organise coffee mornings, film nights, a Christmas Fair and many other events. Parental help is always greatly appreciated.
