The School Day
This page contains details about the school day.
The school gates are unlocked in the morning at 8.30 a.m. when parents and children can enter the playground. Two members of staff are on duty during the morning session – usually there is one member of staff in either playground and one member of the Leadership Team staff at the school gate.
The main school bell rings at 8.45 a.m., when children should line up quietly and wait for their class teacher. Registration takes place from 8.45 a.m. to 9.00 a.m. Any children arriving after this time will be marked as late – which could impact on their attendance percentage.
Lunchtime runs from 12.00 noon to 1.00 p.m. in Key Stage 1 and 12.30 p.m. to 1.30 p.m. in Key Stage 2. Teachers and members of the Leadership Team are on duty every day, with Mealtime Supervisors on duty in the dining hall. Afternoon registration runs from 1.30 p.m. to 1.40 p.m.
The school gates are unlocked at 3.00 p.m. when parents can enter the playground. The school day ends for Key Stage 1 at 3.05 p.m. and Key Stage 2 at 3.15 p.m. All teaching staff bring their classes onto the playground and check who children are going home with (unless older children have been given parental permission to walk home on their own or with friends).
If you are likely to arrive late in the afternoon to collect your child(ren), please let us know by contacting the main school office. All children will be looked after near the main school office at the end of the school day if they haven’t been collected.
