Our School Day

Our school day begins at 8.50am when a member of staff is on duty on the main school entrance gates.    The school doors open at this time and children enter the building and go into their classrooms.

For the safety of all of our children our school gates are locked at 9.00am.  Anyone arriving after this time must sign their child in at the school office.  Please note any child arriving after 9.00am will be recorded in the register as ‘Late’.  Anyone arriving after 9.15am will be recorded as an ‘Unauthorised Absence’ unless a valid reason is given.

It is vital for your child to be in school, on time, in the morning to allow them to settle quickly into the school day.  Please help support us in this by allowing plenty of time to travel to school so your child is ready to enter their classroom from between 8.50am and 9am.

Children in Years 1 – 4 have a morning break time that begins at 10.40am and ends at 11.00am.

Lunch begins at midday and ends at 1.10pm, when children return to their classrooms for their afternoon learning.

Children in Key Stage 1 have an afternoon playtime.

Our school day ends at 3.30pm.  Children in Nursery to Year 3 need to be collected from their class teacher at this time.  Children in Year 4 may leave the school ground unaccompanied if the school has received written confirmation of this arrangement.
