Our School Day

Our school day runs from 9.00am until 3.30pm, Monday-Friday (Term-time only.)

Our school week is 32.5 hours per week.  


In the morning our school gates are open between 9am and 9.10am.

Children need to be in class and ready to learn by 9:10am each day, when the register is called. All children must be accompanied to the classroom door.

If your child arrives at school after the gates have closed at 09:10am, please come to the office and sign them in at the  EntrySign machine so that they receive their attendance mark for the day. Please do not take them round to the class.

To avoid any undue anxiety children 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. Please see our 'Pupil Arrival and Collection' policy for more details.

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.

There is a breakfast club and  after school club run in the adjacent Junior School everyday.  If you would like further information about these clubs, please contact Park Hill Junior School.

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.
