School Day

Journey to school and drop off

Many children walk, cycle or use their scooter to come to school. We have a large, secure bike shed by the main entrance and a scooter store on the Infant playground. If you do need to travel by car then please park SAFELY and abide by parking regulations - they are there to keep everyone safe.

Nursery

Entrance to Nursery is to the left of the Front Office, along the side of the building near the flag pole and Junior bike shed. 

Nursery's morning session starts at 09:00am. The day finishes at 3:00pm. Pick up is from the same door.

Morning Break

Children in Key Stages 1 and 2 have a fifteen minute break (KS1 at 10:45am, KS2 at 10:25am)

Children in Nursery and Reception have break times which are integrated into their learning activities; at least half of which are experienced in the outdoor environment.

End of the day

Parents/carers of Infant children (Y1 & Y2) are encouraged to wait on the Infant playground for the end of their day at 3:10pm. This allows a chance for staff to speak to parents and develop strong home-school partnerships.

Year 5 and Year 6 children are dismissed from the side of the main entrance at 3:15pm. Parents/carers are encouraged to wait at the top of the car park. 

If normal collection arrangements have to be altered e.g. you are delayed or another person is collecting your child, please let us know.  This avoids any confusion or upset.

If you wish to allow your child to walk home independently we must have written confirmation of this.
