The School Day

For Reception, Year 1 and Year 2, external classroom doors are opened at 08:45. In Reception, parents may bring their children into the classroom.

In the juniors, children may enter the school from 08:45 where they will be greeted by members of the senior management team and the welfare assistant.


Assemblies are held daily at 09:40 in Key Stage 1 and 09:10 in Key Stage 2, with a whole school assembly at 09:15 on Fridays. During our assemblies we reflect on moral and spiritual issues, including our school values. We recognise pupils who demonstrate these values through our weekly Thank You assemblies. We celebrate achievement, our successes and sing.

Each class will perform an assembly and production at some time during the year, to which parents are invited.

Lunch Times

The school provides school dinners or children may bring a packed lunch. All pupils in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 are entitled to a free school meal.

If you would like your child to bring a packed lunch please make sure that it is packed in a named plastic container. Children may bring a drink in a leakproof container or carton. Eversley is a healthy school; please do not send sweets as part of a packed lunch.

Absence from School

If your child is unwell or cannot attend school please telephone the school office as soon as possible and explain the reason. The school has a duty to record all absences and notify the LEA. The Education Welfare Officer (EWO) regularly visits the school to discuss each child’s attendance and punctuality.

Illness/Well-being at School

The school has welfare assistants in both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 buildings. If your child becomes ill during the school day we will contact you as soon as possible so that you can arrange for your child to be collected. In the event of an emergency we will take any necessary action for the well-being of your child. We will contact parents as soon as possible. It is vital that you provide us with up-to-date home and work numbers, an emergency contact number and inform us of any changes immediately.

All pupils have their hearing, eyesight, weight and height checked at some point during their years at Primary School by the Primary Health Trust nurse.
