The School Day

Before School

The playground is supervised to allow children to arrive from 08.40 every morning. If arriving by car, parents are encouraged to drop their children and leave between 08.40  and 08.50. This is to free up the limited number of parking spaces for those arriving later. We also ask that, in the interest of safety, no cars are brought across the small bridge near the school entrance during the drop off and pick up periods of the day.

The children begin to come into the building at 08.50 allowing them to sort out their coats, bags and lunch boxes in the cloakroom areas before entering their classrooms. Adults are in the classrooms from 08.50 to welcome the children who quickly settle to complete morning activities such as reviewing and responding to the teacher's written feedback in their books. By 09.00, all children should be in class and ready to begin their day.

The register closes at 9.15 and any child arriving between 9,00 and 9.15 will be registered as being late. Any child arriving after 9.15 will be registered as absent for the session.

Collective Worship (Assembly)

Hot school dinners are cooked on site and are currently free for children in Year R, 1 and 2.

The school day finishes at 15.30. All children leave school via the side gate onto the front playground from where they can be collected. Children in Years R 1 and 2 are supervised by a member of staff and only allowed through the side gate when the adult responsible for them has been identified. Older children are prohibited from leaving the school site at the end of the day unaccompanied unless this has been agreed by prior arrangement with the class teacher.
