The School Day

School gates open at 8:25am and with our soft start, classroom doors open at 8.30am. Classroom doors are closed at 8:40am. This means that if you aim for arrival at school at 8:30am you can drop your child straight into their classroom, with a 10 minute period before registration to allow for delays to your journey.

Registration for all year groups is 8:40am.


If children arrive after class doors are closed, they must be taken to the office to sign in so that we can ensure that all children in school are registered. Please don’t leave children in the playground to make their own way in.

End of the School Day

Children who are not collected within 10 minutes of dismissal time will be taken to the Hall, from where they can be collected via the main entrance. Late pickups will be asked to sign a ‘Late Collection’ book, and parents/carers who are regularly late to collect their children will be invited to a meeting in school to discuss how we can help to reduce these incidents. If any parents/carers know that they will be late collecting their child, they are asked to inform the school office as early as possible to avoid any unnecessary concern.

Please make sure that all the people who will be collecting your child are recorded on the blue collection form. If someone else is going to collect your child, please let the class teacher or the school office know in advance.

Older siblings who are 16 or younger are unable to collect younger siblings who are in Reception or Key Stage 1. Secondary aged students can collect their Key Stage 2 siblings only.

If you wish your child to travel to or from school by themselves, and they are in Year 5 or Year 6, please fill in an "Independent Travellers" form available in the school office.

Please note that school recommends that all children should be accompanied by an adult to and from school until they are in Year 5. Please remember, you are responsible for your children at the end of the day. They should be in your sight at all times. They must not play in the MUGA.
