Our School Day
The school day starts at 8.55am and doors will be open from 8.40am. The doors will close at 8.55am and pupils who arrive after that time must go through the office and sign in as late. Registration is from 8.55am to 9.00am.
Children in Y1 and Y2 have a morning break from 10.05 – 10.20; older children from 10.35 – 10.50.
Children from Reception to Y6 begin their break at 12.00pm and end it at 1.00pm
All children have an afternoon playtime.
Drop-off and collection
At the beginning of the school day the external doors in to school will be open and staffed from 8.40am so that all pupils can come straight in to school and get settled. Classes 1, 2 & 3 will use the path via the field at the top of the playground, Classes 4, 5, 6 & 7 will use the entrance at the top of the playground next to the field and Classes 8, 9, 10 & 11 will use the entrance at the bottom of the playground. At the end of the day staff will bring the children outside to the playground where they will be collected by parents and families. Classes 1, 2 & 3 finish at 3.15pm, Classes 4, 5, 10 & 11 finish at 3.20pm and Classes 6, 7, 8 & 9 finish at 3.25pm. If normal arrangements have to be altered (eg you are delayed or another person is collecting your child) please let us know. This avoids any confusion or upset. Please note parents must not use the school car park at any time.
Getting to school
To get to and from school, walking is definitely the best option! There are lots of benefits: it’s healthier than travelling by car, it improves the safety of pedestrians and road-users, and it respects nearby residents and parking regulations. Alternatively, we have bike-racks. If you do need to travel by car, please park wisely and not on the school staff car park.
