Beginning and end of the day
Our school day runs from 9.10am until 3.30pm.
All children should arrive at school in good time but not before 9.00 a.m. Please ensure that no child is left unaccompanied in the playground between 9.00 a.m. and 9.10 a.m. A buzzer rings for all children to come into the school building at 9.10 a.m. All children should be accompanied to their classroom door at this time.To avoid any undue anxiety they should be collected promptly at 3.30 p.m. If a parent arrives later than 3.40 pm they are required to sign their child out in the office. If a child is recorded as late more than three times, the parents/carers will be contacted by letter / telephone to arrange a meeting to discuss alternative collection arrangements.
Under NO circumstances should any infant aged child arrive or depart from school unless they are accompanied by either a parent or a person of at least 16 years of age, approved by the parent.
In exceptional circumstances, if you anticipate that you may be late and/or have made alternative arrangements for the collection of your child, please give us a telephone call to inform us, so that we can pass the message to your child and reassure them.
Please note car park entrances to the Infant and Junior Schools should not be used by parents and children at the beginning or end of the school day. These are very hazardous areas and vehicles need access at all times.
