The school day begins at 9:00 am. Children are asked not to come on the playground before 8:50 am.
A whistle is blown at 8:50 am to let the children know it is time to come into school.
Children and parents are asked to use the doors nearest to the child's classroom.
Early Years children enter school through the Early Years Centre entrance which is opened at 8:55 am and closed at 9:05 am. Parents are welcomed in to settle their children and may gain access to the playground to drop older children off.
Once inside the children can hang up coats and bags on the correct hook before going into the classroom. The hooks are labelled so that every child has his or her own space. It is very helpful if both the coat and the bag have been labelled with the child's name in case it gets 'lost'.
There is usually a break from 10:30 am to 10:45 am. If you would like your child to have a morning snack we ask that he/she has fruit.
Please do not send your child to school with sweets or crisps.
Early Years children and KS1 children have break where they are provided with milk and fruit.
We encourage children to follow healthy lifestyles and towards this goal, sweets. crisps and fizzy drinks are not allowed in school. All children have the use of the school water fountains.
Our lunch-time is from 11:45 am to 1:15 pm.
Early Years Centre 11:45 am - 12:50 pm
Keystage 1 (Infants) 12:00 pm - 1:00pm
Keystage 2 (Juniors) 12:15 pm - 1:00 pm
Children going home for lunch should be back at school five minutes before the start of the afternoon session.
The school day finishes at 3:15 pm. Unless your child is taking part in an after school activity, he/she will be sent home shortly after 3:15 pm.
Parents are asked to wait outside the school as the cloakroom can be very crowded when children are going home.
Early Years children are collected from their classroom and again the main playground is accessible through the Early Years Centre to collect older children. The Early Years Centre doors are opened at 3:10 pm.
All parents should be aware that Early Years pupils should not be collected by anyone under the age of 16 years. There are circumstances where, if prior consent (ideally written) is provided by the parent/carer, a young person can collect a pupil from school.
