New Starters 2024 Information


Starting school is a milestone, not only for your child but also for you. You may be excited or perhaps a little concerned about your child taking these first steps towards independence. At Bishop Monkton Church of England primary school, we aim to build a good relationship between home and school so that everybody involved can ensure your child gets the very best out of their school experience.

Please do not hesitate to contact the school office should you require any further information

Additional Information



Your child will be given a log on for an online journal called 'Seesaw'. This allows communication between school and home. We are able to share 'Wow' moments in their learning both at home and in school. 



If a child is absent from school for any reason, please contact the school by telephone. If we do not receive notification then we will contact you to establish where your child is.



If your child has a hospital, dental or medical appointment during school time, please inform your child’s teacher and the school office. Your child must be collected from the main reception area and signed in and out of the school premises.



Holidays in term time are not authorised. Your child’s first year at school is very important and routine and attendance will help your child settle into school life.


Hot dinners

Infants are entitled to the government’s Universal Infant Free School Meals. This means the government provide a hot dinner for every child in Reception, Year One and Year Two. The menu for the term is published on the website, it might be a good idea to have a look and see what your child might not like as the kitchen staff are able to supply some alternatives.


Personal belongings 

Precious toys and personal belongings should not be brought to school since they are easily lost or exchanged with other children.
