The School Day

From when we start to when we finish

Reception to Year 6

Day start

The gates open at 8.45am and the first bell rings in the playground at 8.50am and KS1 children go into class by themselves, followed by KS2 at 8.53am ready for an 8.55am start. Reception parents take children round to their classes at the back and go into class at 8.55am.

Day end

Children are brought back out to the playground to be collected by parents at 3.25pm. Reception children are collected from their classes at 3.25pm

If you are unable to collect your child and you are sending someone who is unknown to us could you please call the office and provide them with a name and a description of the person collecting your child that day. We will not let them go unless we have heard from you.

If you arrive after 3.25pm, you will be considered as ‘late’ and your child will have been taken to our After School Club, where a late fee will incur. Unless you have pre-booked ASC, it is essential that you arrive between 3.15 and 3.25pm.
