The School Day

The school day starts at 9:00 a.m. and finishes at 3:15 p.m.

We accept responsibility for the children for ten minutes before the start of school, and for ten minutes at the end of the day, i.e. from 8:50 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and from 3:15 p.m. to 3:25 p.m. After 3:25 p.m. every child should have left the premises unless s/he is remaining for some teacher-organised extra-curricular activity.

It is important that your child is on time every day to ensure that your child is settled and to avoid disruption to the class. If your child is late for school, please report to the school office with your child and complete the ‘late register’. Excellent attendance is very important for children to thrive at school and therefore we encourage children to be in school every day.

If you are going to be delayed for collection at the end of the school day, please telephone the school office at the earliest opportunity and your child will wait in the hall until they are collected.

Changes to ‘Normal’ Collection Arrangements

If someone other than the ‘normal’ person is to collect your child, the school requires a letter confirming this arrangement for that particular day. The letter must be addressed to the class teacher, providing details of whom will be collecting your child and if relevant, where they will be going. For example, going to a friend’s house straight from school. We appreciate that many parents share the school run and collect each other’s children on a regular basis. In this instance, only one letter confirming this arrangement for the group is required.

Children Travelling Home Alone

If you would like your child in Year 5 or Year 6 to walk home from school, please provide a written note informing the school of this arrangement. The school is unable to allow children to leave school alone without this permission.
