Our school day

Arriving at school

The school gates are open from 8.30am and two members of staff will supervise Bertie the Bus.

  • At 8.40am the two rear doors to the building will be open. School staff will still be on the playground to welcome children to school and be available to talk to parents/carers if needed.
  •  Between 8.40am and 8.50am children can make their way to their classrooms and be greeted by staff and take part in a calm morning activity.
  •  At drop off between 8.40am and 8.50am parents /families can send children into school and are free to start their day. 
  •  The school gates will be locked at 8.55am. If you arrive after this time, please sign you child(ren) in to school at the main office.

If you need to speak to a teacher urgently in the morning, you are welcome to come into school with your child(ren) to the classroom or speak to them to arrange to meet at the end of the day.

At the end of the school day

Teachers will lead the children into the playground.

We politely request that parents/carers leave the school site as quickly as possible at the end of the school day. For safeguarding purposes, it is much easier for staff to ensure that all children have been collected, have permission to walk home and have left the school site, or are at after school clubs/ Sammy's den when the playground is clear and we are then able to lock the school gates again.
