School Day

 8.55am  The school day begins

Parents are reminded that: 

  • Young pupils should be brought and met from school by a responsible adult.
  • No children are allowed on site until 8.45 am (unless attending clubs).  Children remain the responsibility of parents before the school day begins.
  • Please show consideration to our neighbours when dropping/collecting children from school. 


It is important that children arrive in school on time and are collected promptly at the end of the school day. 

Late arrival not only causes anxiety to your child but disruption to their education and that of others in the class.


Please contact the school office by 9.15 am either in person or by phone if your child is absent from school for any reason (Option 1 on the school answerphone). 

Please follow this up in writing, in your child’s Contact Book, on their return to school.
