Friends hold regular school discos at Christmas, Halloween, Easter and Summer. They are a great way for the kids to let off some steam before the start of the school holidays and are very much part and parcel of school social life. There are changes to the way we are organising discos this academic year - we hope you find this little guide useful.
When are discos held?
This academic year, discos will be held as follows:
Check out the calendar of events for the latest dates.
What time are they held?
We have three discos on every date, one for Nursery & Reception (EYFS), one for Lower School (KS1 Y1 , 2 & 3) & one for Upper School (KS2 Y4-Y6).
Who can attend a school disco?
All children from Nursery through to Year 6. Upper school children are not permitted to attend the Lower School discos and vice versa. Discos are for Chandlers Ridge Academy pupils only.
Entering the disco
Please queue at the school hall door at the back of the school building alongside the staff car park. Note, for everyone's safety the car park gates will be closed. Parents and carers will be asked to sign their children in to the disco and leave a contact number if they are not staying to supervise.
Leaving the disco
When the disco has finished please enter the disco via the school hall door and exit through the dining hall out of the side door. We ask you to exit through the Y3 Classroom (former dining room) so our helpers can ensure that all children are accompanied by an adult.
Supervision at discos
We encourage parents and carers to stay and supervise their children at discos. Upper school children are not permitted to attend the Lower School disco to supervise their siblings.
How much is entry?
How do I pay?
Disco entry will be sold in advance of the disco via ParentPay. By using ParentPay we have a record of who is attending the disco for safety reasons.
Payment will be accepted on the door however, this is not the preferred option. Parents and carers will be asked to sign their children in to the disco and leave a contact number if they are not staying to supervise.
Should children bring cash to the disco?
Lower school children can bring cash to the disco to purchase pocket money toys.
We encourage a bit more independence with the Upper School disco - children can choose what to buy from the tuck shop or range of pocket money toys. Give your child at least £1 spending money for the upper school disco - this will cover crisps, a mix up and chocolate bar. Pocket money toys start at 10p and go up to £1.
We encourage parents to stay at the disco and supervise their child where possible.
