The School Day

All children should be at school ready for the bell for registration at 8:30am, when the children begin their learning.

The school day finishes at 3pm for Reception and Infants, and 3:10pm for Juniors. Parents are asked to wait in the playground until the children are dismissed by their class teacher.


Reception 8:30am to 11:45 (break 10:00-10:15)
Infants (Years 1 & 2) 8:30am to 12:00pm (break 10:00-10:15am)
Juniors (Years 3, 4, 5 & 6) 8:30am to 11:55am (break 10:15-10:30am)


Reception and Infants 12:50pm to 3:00pm
Juniors 12:50pm to 3:10pm

Delivering and Collecting children

The children should not be left in the playground before 8:20am, as there is no supervision. After this time, a member of the Senior Leadership Team will be on duty at the gate to ensure the children remain in the playground.

If children arrive at school after this time, then a parent/carer needs to sign them in at the School Office.

Children can be collected at the end of the day from the main playground. Once again, a member of the Senior Leadership Team will be on duty at the front gate. For safety reasons we would ask that everyone leaves the site using the pedestrian crossing rather than crossing the car park.

Due to space, parents are not able to park in the car park, unless this has been agreed with the Headteacher. However, we do have an informal agreement with Waitrose that we can use their car park at drop off and pick up times.
