Our School Day

Reception – Year 6:

The school day starts at 8:45am and finishes at 3:10pm. Registration is from 8:45am to 9:00am. Doors open at 8.45am to give children enough time to get organised for the school day.

 

Nursery: Sessions last for three hours:  8.45am – 11.45am and 12.15pm - 3.15p.m

The government funds up to 30 hours of childcare for 3 and 4 year old children. All children are entitled to the universal 15 hours included in this 30 hours. See Parents for further details.

 

Lunch:

Nursery       11:45 - 12:45

Reception  11:45 - 12:45

Drop-off and collection:

At the beginning and end of the school day, parents are encouraged into the playground. This helps to build up a close relationship between home and school – we want to have good links with all parents. The gates open at 3.00p.m. If normal arrangements have to be altered (eg you are delayed or another person is collecting your child) please let us know. This avoids any confusion or upset.

 

Family Liaison Officer

Miss Buckland, our Family Liaison Officer, is on duty every morning if you have any concerns or messages to pass on and will be available to support children coming into school in the mornings.

 

Getting to school:

To get to and from school, walking is definitely the best option! There are lots of benefits: it’s healthier than travelling by car, it improves the safety of pedestrians and road-users and it respects nearby residents and parking regulations. Alternatively, we have bike-racks. If you do need to travel by car, please park considerately and never on the yellow zig zag lines as this prevents our crossing patrol officer crossing our children safely.
