The School Day
8.40 a.m. - 12.30 p.m. and 1.30 p.m. - 3.15 p.m.
Please note the school office is closed 12.30 -1.30 p.m.
Please be on time. Punctuality is an important value for children to learn. The school gate is opened at 8.40 a.m. Please do not arrive too early, especially in cold and/or wet weather.
The children may go straight to their classrooms, using the pupil entrance. Members of staff will be in the classrooms to supervise the children from 8.40 a.m. Please try to get your children to school by 8.50 a.m. so that they are in the classroom in good time before registration closes at 9.00 a.m.
With young children, arrangements for collection are vitally important. Make sure they understand them and, should you be delayed, please give us a ring on 01803 613095.
At the end of the day, all the children will be escorted to the playground by their class teachers where they can be collected. Foundation children can be collected from their own playground accessed via the pathway off the main path.
Parents who wish their children to walk home at the end of the school day should let the school know in writing. We would ask that parents ensure their children are supervised once collected.
Any child not collected by 3.25 p.m. will be returned to the main school office. We urge parents to collect their children at the correct time. If you are delayed in any way please contact the school office on 01803 613095.
Scooters and Bikes
The school has a scooter rack situated outside the main entrance.
Cycling to school is also encouraged but do please check our school policy. We recommend that children cycling to school wear a helmet and if cycling independently participate in a Bikeability course. It is the parents/carers who must decide if a child is competent enough to cycle to school.
