The School Day


Doors open at 8.45am when staff are on duty to welcome the children and set them learning activities.  Registration for all year groups is 8.50am.

All children enter school through the side gate onto the playground.  Pupils are not permitted to use the front entrance to the building.  Those cycling to school, in accordance with the school Cycling Policy, need to leave their bikes in the cycle park within the school playground.  If children wish to cycle to school, they need to wear a helmet. 

The car park is for staff only and is not a safe place for children to walk through.  We appreciate your support with this.

To ensure the safety of children, school gates will be locked promptly at 9am.  Families arriving after that time will need to enter school via the main doors and report to the office.  Children arriving after 8:55am when registration is closed will be recorded as late.



All pupils have 1 hour for lunch.  Children who go home to lunch should return between five and ten minutes before the start of their afternoon lessons.



The afternoon session finishes at 3.15pm. Those children who attend Wrap Around Care will go to their After School Club room and remain there supervised until parent/carer collection from main reception.

The roads around the school get very congested at the start and end of the school day, so please take great care when walking or driving near the school site.  Parking on the yellow lines or on the main road outside school, even for a moment, could endanger a child’s life, especially in wet weather when visibility is poor, and it is strictly forbidden.  The local police co-operate with the school to enforce this.  Please use the car park allocated for parents use opposite the school.  The staff car park is for staff use only and is not a safe place for children to be walking.

Please do not allow your children to ride scooters, bikes and skateboards in the playground at the beginning and end of the day as the grounds are too congested to do this safely.  Children are also not permitted to use the play equipment in the playground on the school field.  These are supervised use during school hours only.  We appreciate your support with this matter.

Please note dogs are not allowed onto the school site.  Thank you.
