Our School Day

Our school day starts at 8:55am
Doors open at 8:45 am and close at 9:00am prompt

It is very important that your child arrives on time each day as we begin learning activities straight away. The school gates are only opened at the beginning and end of each day so if you are late or need to collect your child early, you will need to come to the main school office.

Breakfast Club opens at 8:00am in the Community Room for children who want to come to school early. For more information see our Breakfast Club page.

Nursery is open:
Mornings –            8:55am – 12:00

Drop-off and collection

At the beginning and the end of the school day, parents and families are welcomed into our playgrounds. This helps to build a close relationship between home and school – we want to have strong links with all of our parents and families.  If normal arrangements have to be altered (e.g. you are delayed or another person is collecting your child), please let us know. This avoids any confusion or upset.

Home time

Doors open at 3:15pm

We need to know who is collecting your child at all times. If we do not recognise the adult collecting a child, we will not allow child to go home with this adult until we have had confirmation from a known adult. Please always let staff know if somebody new will be collecting your child.

After School Clubs

Our After School Club provision (Monday – Thursday) will begin on the week beginning Monday 1st October.  We offer a selection of exciting and engaging clubs for children in Year 1-Year 6, please visit our After School Club page to find our more.

After School Clubs begin at 3:15 and finish at 4:15. Please collect your child from their class cloakroom.
