Our School Day

The playground gates open at 8.45 am when members of staff are on duty to supervise your child/ren.

A bell rings at 8.55 am and the children line up and are taken to their classroom by their class teacher.

School begins at 8.55am and finishes at 3.30pm. We are committed to developing punctuality as an essential life skill. If children arrive after 9:10 am they will be marked in the register as unauthorised absence.

Holidays during Term Time

New Government regulations came into force in September 2013. Schools are unable to authorise any holidays taken during term time. If there are ‘exceptional circumstances’ the Governors and Head will agree the number of days leave but a meeting must take place and it must be ‘exceptional circumstances’. Term time holidays will be unauthorised and may include penalty notices of £60 per child (£60 if paid within 21 days and £120 if paid within 28 days).
