We moved into the Sutton Coldfield/Four Oaks area in Birmingham a few months ago and have finally been offered a school place. It is at Mere Green Primary school (was Mere Green Combined).
He starts on Monday 3rd November and we only found out just over a week ago. We did view the school before hand and I have managed to get some info off website but I wonder if anyone can help me with the following:
What times does the school start and finish each day? Where do i drop him off and pick him up? What is the PE uniform? Do they have to take their own pencil cases/equipment? Do they take their own water bottles? Do most children take their own bag or have a school book bag?
I probably have other questions too. Would really like to make contact with someone whose child/children go to this school if that's possible. My son will be going into Year 3.
I don't know the school it's self but for PE black shorts white t shirt and black plimsolls you can't go wrong. Take a water bottle the first day. Birmingham primary children don't generally take their own pencils and such. First day drop off I would imagine to be to the office not the class room.
I don't know the school but I would probably take him to school for 9.00 that way you miss all the hustle and bustle that comes with a Monday after a holiday. The receptionist/secretary would then have time to find your dc teacher or head teacher which ever is appropriate. Don't worry about PE kit that can be sorted out later. Likewise yes to the water bottle. Take a deep breath it will be ok
