Times for the school day - these timings are temporarily altered due to staggered starts

Our school gate opens at 8.30am. The bell is rung at 8:45 am and the children go straight into their class.

Children should be in class by 8.50am, when the register is taken, and ready to learn. Any child arriving after 8.55am and before the register closes at 9.15am will be classed as present but late.

The school register closes at 9.15am and children arriving after this will be entered on the register as absent unauthorised, unless there is a valid reason for the time of arrival. Any arrival after 9.15am will count as an absence.

The children are dismissed at 3.10pm, when staff bring each class to the large playground for collection. The gates to the playground on Gilbrook Road will be opened at 3.00pm for parental access. The gates will be closed at 3:30 pm.

Dentist/Doctors’ appointments are also counted as an absence and should where possible be made after school hours.
