Parents like to celebrate their child's birthday in school and this page is set up to give some guidance on that.
Birthday presents for the class
Some parents list to gift a present to the class for their child's birthday. Parents who wish to do this have the choice to buy class books for the book corner or wet play games etc. The teacher can help you pick which books they need and then will explain to the children that because it is XX birthday they have given the class a present.
Parents have the choice to provide a sweet treat or 'party bag' for the children in their child's class. There is no expectation to do this but if parents decide to they will need to drop this off at the start of the day. Please note that staff can not prepare this for you and it needs to be easy to hand out e.g. no cutting of cake etc. Please also remember that this is a nut free school and some children have dietry requirements so please do provide gluten free and vegan options if you are providing gifts for the whole class.
The teacher will then again wish the child a happy birthday while they give out the gifts.
Two different approaches but either way, we will make sure that your child will be made to feel special on their birthday.
Own clothes day
This year the communication team have introduced the idea that on your birthday you do not have to wear school uniform and can wear your own clothes. This is totally up to you and your child but is an option.This will allow for the school to make them feel special on their special day.
