The School Day

The school day starts at 8.45am when the children line up on the front playground with the rest of their class, ready to be collected by their Class Teacher as the bell rings. For Nursery, the nursery parents drop their children off at the Early Years entrance in the corner of the playground. 

The start of the school day is an important time and lateness is a disruption for the child. Please make sure your child attends school on time and that he/she is only kept away from school for genuine illness.

Registers are taken promptly at 8.55am. If your child arrives later than this, they will be considered late and will receive a late mark. If you arrive after 8.55am, please accompany your child into the school reception area as they will need to be signed in at the school office by an adult.

If your child is unwell and cannot attend school, please ensure you telephone the school office on 01883 342606 before 8.45am to inform us. If we have not been informed of a child’s absence, a text message will be sent and a response is expected.

Years 1-6 have a 15 minute morning break every day. EYFS have access to the outside area throughout the day.

Lunchtime runs from 11.30-12.25pm for EYFS and KS1, and from 12.35-1.25pm for KS2.

The school day ends at 3.00pm for all children in EYFS and KS1, and 3.10pm for children in KS2. When children are dismissed from school they are expected to leave the site and go straight home unless they are attending Acorns or an after school club. Please phone ahead if you are likely to be late so we can then let your child know and save them from worrying unnecessarily. Persistent lateness at the end of the day makes children feel insecure, so please try and avoid this at all costs. Please see our Late Collection policy under the Policies tab for more information. 

Please note that due to COVID-19 we are currently operating on a rolling start and a staggered finish. The current timings of the school day are:
