The school office is open from 8.00am to 4.00pm and operates an ‘open door’ policy where children can enter school on arrival.
Reception children may be accompanied to their cloakrooms from 8.40am. Registration is at 8.50am. During the year we encourage greater independence so that by the Summer Term all the children enter the building independently in preparation for Year 1.
Children in Years 1 and 2 should be accompanied onto the playground and parents should drop them at the classroom door. They can arrive at school any time from 8.35am and should be in class for registration at 8.50am.
At the end of the day Year 1, Year 2 and Reception children are collected by parents (or other named adults) from the playground near the classroom doors, at 3.00pm.
Children in Years 3 – 6 can arrive at school from 8.35am. Registration is at 8.45am. Their finish time is 3.05pm.
If for any reason Reception and KS1 children are not collected they are taken to the school office. Older pupils should also return to the office and notify staff that they have not been collected. A telephone call would be appreciated if parents are unavoidably delayed. Children will be looked after until collected.
There is a break in the mornings:
Reception, Years 1, 2 and 3
10.20am – 10.40am
Years 4, 5 and 6
10.45am – 11.00am
The local authority employs a crossing patrol person who is normally on duty by the Miller and Carter from
8.30am – 9.00am and 3.00pm – 3.30pm.
