School Day

Start of the Day 


School doors open for pupils at 8.45am with registration at 8.55am.


Arrival in the classroom after this time is counted as a late.


Children who are registered for Breakfast Club may be dropped off from 8.00am. Please do not send your children in before this time as there is no-one available to supervise them. 


Parents and carers for children in years 1 to 3 are welcome to settle their children in and help them to get started on their morning tasks. Parents and carers in years 4 to 6, please support your children in developing their independence by allowing them to get started on their own. All parents and carers should leave their children in their classrooms, settled and ready for their learning by 8.55. 


All internal school gates will be locked at 9.00 am. Anyone arriving after this time must use the main school entrance and will receive a late mark.


Breakfast club


Breakfast club runs daily from 8.00 am until the start of school. Last Entry to Breakfast Club is at 8.30 am. Breakfast club places need to be booked and paid for in advance - on the day bookings cannot be taken as we cannot allocate staff on short notice. 


Please see the office staff to book a place.
