The school day starts at 9.00 a.m for all children. Children enter from the back gate entrance which opens at 8.45am. Registration and teaching begins promptly each day. Punctuality is extremely important as it sets positive habits for the future and leads to better achievement. Poor attendance or serious and regular lateness is embarrassing for the child and may cause your child to fall behind with their work.
End of the Day
The school ends at 3:15pm on the Lower Site and 3.20 p.m on the Upper Site. At the end of the day we ask that you wait outside the school gates for the teacher to dismiss the children safely. Parents and carers must let the child’s teacher know in advance who will be picking up their child. Teachers will only give children to authorised adults. If you have arranged for your child to be picked up by someone different from usual it is important that you inform the school before the end of the day. Children should be picked up by responsible adults only. The school may refuse to hand children over to siblings under 16 years of age without written authorisation from the parents.
Late collection can be very distressing for children. To avoid any concerns please inform the school by telephone if you are going to be late collecting your child.
