THE SCHOOL DAY
The school gate opens at 8:30am for the children. Parents usually drop their child off at the main gate, where there will always be an adult present to welcome the children, and then they wait on the playground with their friends. The playground is supervised from 8:30am. The daily mile takes place 4 days of the week before school. The bell is rung at 8:50am and the gate is locked. The register is taken at 8.55am. Lessons begin promptly at 9:00am.
The adventure playground is strictly out of bounds before and after school for Health and Safety reasons. No ball games allowed before or after school.

We have whole school assemblies on a Monday and Thursday, a year group singing practice on a Tuesday (Year 3 & 4) or Wednesday (Year 5 & 6) afternoon and the Headteacher's weekly merit/celebration assembly on Friday afternoon.
The school day ends at 3.30pm every day.
The total number of school hours each day (8:50am - 3:30pm) is 6 hours and 40 minutes. The total number of school hours each week is 33.33 (33 hours and 20 minutes).
At the end of the school day, we allow all parents/ carers onto the school premises to collect the children. We anticipate that children in Year 3 will be collected by a responsible person, however if parents of Year 3 wish to collect from the main gate they may do so, but we would like to be informed. Year 4, 5 and 6 pupils are encouraged to walk to the main gate and to be collected by their parents/carers or responsible adult. However, parents/carers of children in any year group may collect from the large playground if they wish.
Please collect your child promptly.
All children who walk to the main gate to meet parents/ carers MUST be reminded to return to school if no-one turns up within a short 10 minute period of time from the school closing so that you can be contacted. A member of staff will be on the gate.
If your child is late for school in the morning (after registration time), you must enter the school via the Reception/Office at the front of the school and register your child as late.
