Mr Faulkner- Class 17

Community and Belonging

Welcome to Class 17’s webpage!

Hi, my name is Mr Faulkner and I am Class 17’s teacher. In Class 17, children are also supported by: Mrs Anderson, Mrs Matthews, Mrs Cosh and Mrs Jones. 


Year 6’s topic for the Autumn term will be Community and Belong – you can find out more information by clicking the ‘Autumn 2022 Topic’ star link below.

The School Day:

  • Children can be dropped off between 8.40 and 9.00am, gates will be locked at 9.00am, pupils arriving after this time will be required to go through the office and will be recorded as late.
  • Pick up time will be 3:15.Children left behind after 3.20 pm may be asked to join After School Club and a charge will be applied.
  • Please continue to follow the one-way system in place to avoid bottlenecks at gates.
  • Each day the children need a coat, water bottle and packed lunch if they are not having a school dinner.
  • Suitable footwear – every day we will encourage the children to take part in the daily mile or other physical activities, so they need comfortable, safe footwear to do so.
  • Slippers can be left in school for children to change into.
  • All children need to have Wellies and waterproofs in school every Monday, to protect their school uniform, to take part in outdoor learning.
All uniform including outdoor clothing needs to be named.

PE days:

  • All pupils need to bring an appropriate PE Kit on their allocated PE days.  Class 17 will do PE on a Thursday and Friday, on both of these days, your child can come to school in their PE kit as we have PE in the morning.
  • Track suit for outdoor winter games.
  • Plain black shorts/cycling shorts or leggings.
  • A school Royal Blue short or long sleeved T-shirt which can be purchased via the school website/ uniform shop or a plain blue or white top can be worn.
  • Training shoes suitable for outdoor games on the field and playground.
  • Swimming costume / trunks and towel - lightweight, long sleeve t shirts and leggings can be worn if necessary, for religious/cultural reasons.
  • A PE bag with the school logo is issued to every child when they start school to keep all PE clothes together.
  • No football shirts/strips should be worn and clothing should not have large brand names on them.

Reading and Learning at home:

if you child has lost their TT Rockstars or Bedrock login, please let Mr Faulkner know and he will send out a new one.


ParentPay can be used to pay school meals and for any other trips / visits that are planned in school.


ParentPay is also used to give permission for activities beyond the daily curriculum offer, including for trips, visitors or other enrichment activities.


If you need any help or support setting up your ParentPay account please contact the team in the office who will be happy to help.

Keeping in touch:

We will continue to use Dojo as a way of keeping in touch. 


We will do our best to respond in a timely manner but please bear in mind that during the school day we are focused on teaching and learning with your children, and we do not monitor Dojo throughout the evening.


If you have an urgent request/message, please contact the team in the office.


Maths Game Homework.


Please make sure your child is completing their weekly Maths homework. There is a sheet on MS Teams or a physical copy in the classroom. Your child also has access to TT Rockstars and I encourage them to use this for at least 10 minutes each night.
