The School Day


Part-time:   8.45am - 11.45 am or 12.15pm - 3.15pm (Nursery only)


Full-time:   Key Stage 1     8.40am - 11.45am and 12.45pm - 3.20pm

                  Key Stage 2     8.40am - 12.15pm and 1.00pm - 3.20pm


Our gates open at 8.25am

Registration is at 8.40am 

School finishes at 3.20pm


Total hours provided per week is 32 hours 30 minutes.


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 8.20am to welcome them.  They then escort the children on to the playground.  We call this our "Walking Bus".  


School registration is at 8.40am and all exterior gates will close at 8.35am.  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 within 10 minutes will be placed in the After School Club and parents will be charged.
