Arrival for the School Day

The school day begins at 8.45am and ends at 3.15pm.

Children should be on the playground at 8.45am. Please do not leave your children unsupervised on the playground before 8.35am as there are no teachers on duty to look after them before this time.

Registration takes place at 8.50 - 8.55 in the morning and 1.00 - 1.30 in the afternoon. If your child arrives at school after these times, you should take them to the School Office, where they will be signed in, and you must give a reason for their late arrival. As they have arrived after Registration has started, a ‘late mark’ will show on their attendance and the number of minutes that they are late is recorded.

Whilst we appreciate that there are occasions when you arrive late, please do try and ensure that your child arrives at school on time, as arriving after lessons have started has a big impact on their learning.

Please ensure that you collect your child promptly at 3.15pm.
