Pattern of Entry for Sept 22

Pattern of Entry for Sept 22

The aim of our pattern of entry is to ensure all children become happy, confident and secure at school. Our induction reflects this by building on routines.


Week Beginning 12th September –  8.50am/9.00am – 1.00pm with School Lunch

Week beginning 12th September the children will experience the lunchtime routine from 8.50am/9.00am – 1.00pm

  • Group A Induction Group will start at 8.50am
  • Group B Induction Group will start at 9.00am

This will develop their independent skills and they will get the opportunity to play on the playground with other school children.

School Lunches:

Your child will be able to order their own lunch from the two school options or if preferred bring in their own food from home. The HC3S New Year R Starters Booklet is available for you to view.

If you prefer for your child to bring in a packed lunch from home, please note that we are a strict nut free school so please no spreads or snacks that contain nuts. Please always provide a healthy balanced packed lunch with no glass containers or fizzy drinks. Please see our School Meal Policy page.

Week Beginning 19th September – 8.50am – 3.20pm

This week your child will experience a full day of school life, learning and building on morning, lunchtime and afternoon routines and will be in full time.


We feel this pattern of entry allows children to build on routines at a steady pace but also inducts them into school life quickly. We understand that some children may need to have a more flexible pattern of entry and as always we work closely with you in partnership to establish what is best for your child.  Please discuss any concerns you have with your child’s teacher.
