Our School Day

Routine of the school day


Our children can enter the school 10 minutes before the official start time.


Children must be at school each morning by 8.50 a.m. Attendance and punctuality is recorded, monitored and reported in line with our attendance policy.


Children who are late to school need to be signed in at the school office by an adult. 


Electronic registration takes place in the morning and afternoon. A member of staff is on duty from 8.40 a.m. Children are the responsibility of parents/carers before school and should not be in the playground unsupervised before this time.


The school day is as follows:

  • 8:50 a.m. – Start of school day
  • 11:30 p.m. – Lunch for Nursery and Reception children
