Remember you are responsible for your child before school. Staff do not come out on duty until 8.30 am so please ensure that your child either does not arrive at school before this time or is accompanied by an adult. Please remember the staggered times of the bubbles and only come at your allocated time.
The times have changed at the end of the day. Please pick your child up at the allocated staggered time and place for your child’s bubble – either 3.15 or 3.30. each day from their designated areas. You must inform your class teacher of who is picking up your child each day. As the nights are drawing darker, we strongly recommend no child under Year 6 is allowed to walk home on their own. Permission must be given in writing. if you need more clarification, please ask your child’s class teacher.
Do you know the age rating for some of the games your children are playing? Please find attached a sheet explaining the different age certificates of some games. The guidance is there for a reason – you may not always realise what your children are exposing themselves to.

Operation Encompass (an initiative to enhance communication between the police and schools where a child is at risk from domestic abuse)
As as school we have signed up to Operation Encompass, which has been designed to provide early reporting to schools / colleges of any domestic abuse incidents that occur in which a child was present, ordinarily resides at the incident location or with an involved party. We know that children can be significantly affected through witnessing or being exposed to domestic abuse and this operation will allow us to better support our pupils and their families.
At Ocklynge Junior School we have a Key Adult who is Sylvia Berhane. She will be able to use information that has been shared with her, in confidence, to ensure that the right support is available should it be required by a child and / or their family.
We are keen to offer the best support available to our pupils and we believe this is extremely beneficial for all those involved.
