The School Day

The school gates open at 8:30am and all children need arrive promptly for the doors opening at 8.40am. Registration closes at 8.45am.

We provide 32.5 hrs of education per week 8.45am – 3.15pm each day.

Reception, Year 1 & Years 4, 5, 5/6 & 6 Enter/Exit through their classroom doors. Year 2 Enter/Exit through KS1 Entrance, Year 3 Enter/Exit through KS2 Entrance

We understand that sometimes things don’t go to plan but if children are consistently late for school, they are missing one of the most important times of the day. It disturbs the education of every child in the class if latecomers are entering the room and so it is very important that all children are in school before the session starts.

If you are late and the gates have been closed, you will enter through the Main Office/Reception area. We have an electronic signing in system which will need to be completed by an adult to register your child into the school.

The school day ends at 3:15pm (3pm for Early Years)
