Amberley have PE planned into their timetable twice a week on Wednesday and Thursday. It is best if PE kits are kept in school all week as timetables are subject to change. Please note that tights are not part of our school PE kit, so please ensure that your child has a spare pair of socks in their bag.
Food and Drink
We encourage children in Year 3-4 to bring in their own named water bottle which can be kept in the classroom for accessible drinking. This bottle is in addition to the drink in their lunch box and must contain water only.
Please also remember a healthy snack for break time each day, This is particularly important as Key Stage 2 have a later lunch, eating at 12:30pm.
Medicine should be handed in at the office in the morning with clear instructions and permission. If your child needs permanent medicine at school this should be clearly labelled and handed in to the medical room.
Attendance and Punctuality
The school day begins at 8:45 and ends at 3:20. The register is taken promptly at 8:55am. The school office should be notified as soon as possible if a child absent.
