The School Day
Staggered Start/End Times
In line with the Government guidelines surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, start and end times of our school day will be staggered to avoid large groups of children congregating and increasing the chances of Coronovirus transmission. The school gates will be opened at the following times: Year 5/6 - 8.45 am for an 8.55 am start - 3.00 pm end Year 3/4 - 9.05 am for a 9.15 am start - 3.20 pm end Year 1/2 - 8.55 am start - 3.00 pm end Reception - 9.15 am start - 3.20 pm end Nursery - 8.45 am start - 3.15 pm end
What will the children learn?
We follow the National Curriculum to teach the statutory subjects across the schoolhttps://www.gov.uk/government/publications/national-curriculum-in-england-primary-curriculum
We make the curriculum broad and balanced for the children at Mount Nod by linking subjects together in topic themes throughout the year, for example - Coventry, The Vikings, Mountains and Rivers. We endeavour to thread subjects such as Art, Music, English and Science into these topics themes so that the children can make meaningful links across the subjects.
To find out more about what your child will be learning each term, our Learning Pages are updated with Topic/Learning Overviews for each year group.
Drop off and collection
At the beginning and end of the school day, parents are currently asked not to enter the school grounds or come onto our playground.
This will help keep the risk of transmitting Coronovirus to a minimum.
If normal arrangements have to be altered (eg you are delayed or another person is collecting your child), please let us know. This avoids any confusion or upset.
Getting to School
To get to and from school, walking is definitely the best option!
There are lots of benefits: it’s healthier than travelling by car; it improves the safety of pedestrians and road users and it respects nearby residents and parking regulations. Alternatively, we have covered bike-racks for those wishing to cycle. If you do need to travel by car, please park wisely and be mindful of children leaving the gates at busy times.
The wearing of school uniform is well established at Mount Nod.
Red cardigan or sweatshirt, white polo shirt or blouse, grey skirt, pinafore or trousers (red gingham dress may be worn in summer).
Red sweatshirt, white polo shirt, grey trousers (grey shorts may be worn in summer).
Sensible black footwear should be worn at all times.
