The School Day


Part-time:   8.45am - 11.45 am or 11.45am - 2.45pm (Nursery only)


Full-time:   Key Stage 1     8.50am - 11.45am and 12.45pm - 3.00pm

                  Key Stage 2     8.50am - 12.15pm and 1.00pm - 3.00pm


Our full-time pupils may be dropped off ten minutes before the start of the day in the layby in front of the school.  Parking facilities at the school are very limited.  Therefore we encourage parents not to park in the morning but simply drop their children in the layby.  Two members of our staff are there from 8.30am to welcome them.  They then escort the children on to the playgroup.  We call this our "Walking Bus".  


School starts promptly at 8.50am and all exterior gates will close at 8.50am.  Children arriving after that time must come through the main school entrance and report late to Mrs Lighthill, our Family Support Worker.


We expect parents to be prompt in collecting their children at the end of the school day.  Children not picked up will be put in After School Club and parents will be charged.
