The School Day

The School Day

The school starts at 8:45am each morning.

The school gates will open at 8:35 am and from this time families are able to enter on to the school premises.  A member of staff will be on duty from 8:35am after which, parents may leave their children on site, if they wish. Just before 8:45am, a bell will be rung to signal to the children to line up outside their classrooms. The children will be greeted by their teacher and escorted into their rooms.

Please note that if your child arrives after the children have entered into school, they should make their way to Reception to be signed in. Children arriving between 8:45 and 8:55am will be noted as late but before the register has closed. Children arriving after 8:55am will be registered as being late.

At the end of the school day, the school gates will open at 3.10pm and from this time  families are able to arrive at school and wait in the playground outside the children’s classrooms. The school day will finish at 3.15pm with children being dismissed from their classrooms. The school gates will close at 3.25.
