The School Day

The school gates into the playground are opened at approx. 8.40am. Parents are encouraged to leave their children at the playground gate unless they need more support in which case they can be walked to their correct school entrance.


Children are asked to go directly to their classrooms for the start of the school day, which begins at 8.45am.


Children who arrive late (after the playground gates are closed at approx. 8.45am) should enter via the main entrance.  


The end of the school day is at 3.15pm and parents should collect children from their correct classroom exit.


Learning time in class (excluding wraparound provision) amounts to 32.5 hours per week.
