The School Day

Teachers are on duty from 7.30am. The school day for children begins at 7.50am for Years 1- 6 and at 8.30am for Nursery and Reception. Parents, particularly of the younger children, will need to stay with their children until the main doors are opened and the children are permitted to enter the school. 

You can help your child by making sure that they arrive at school punctually.  It is very difficult and unsettling for children who are regularly late and missing valuable lesson time.  It is very important for safety reasons that if your child is late that you accompany them and report to the school office. Registers are taken electronically and a late book entry must be completed for every late child.

At the end of the school day, the children are collected from their classes.  

If you are going to be unavoidably late collecting your child, please could you let the school know. The children will then be reassured and asked to sit and wait safely outside the school office. From September 2018 we are enforcing fines for those parents who are late dropping and collecting their children or whose children are absent without a good reason:

Unauthorised Absence

Attendance must not fall below 96%. As there are 280 registration sessions each year (2 per day), a child cannot be absent for more than 11 sessions in a year. For each session a child has an unauthorized absence, below 95% (14 sessions), there will be a fine of £20 that must be paid within 14 days. Any delays or nonpayment may result in further action being taken by the school.

Late Arrival at School

Punctuality must also not fall below 96%. As there are 280 registration sessions (2 per day), a child cannot be late for more than 11 sessions in a year. For each session a child is late below 95% (14 sessions), there will be a fine of £5 that must be paid within 14 days. Any delays or nonpayment may result in further action being taken by the school.

Late Collection from School

Unless there are exceptional circumstances if a child is collected more than 15 minutes late there will be a fine of £5 that must be paid within 14 days. Any delays or nonpayment may result in further action being taken by the school.
