The school day will be structured as follows:

End of day 3:00pm
Junior gates open at 08:40am, Register at 08:55am
End of day 3:15pm
All parents dropping children off at the Infant site will use the entrance on Edith Avenue, where you can access the playground and drop your child off at the playground entrance to their classrooms.
At the Junior site, children will enter the normal way via the car park entrance or drop off entrance. At the end of the day in order to ease congestion, we will continue the current one-way system of entering through the gates on the field and leaving via the top gates.

Lunchtime arrangements
At lunchtime all children can have either a hot school lunch or bring a packed lunch from home. If you provide your child with a packed lunch, please ensure that it is nutritious and healthy.
The contents of lunch boxes are left to the discretion of parents (mid-day supervisors are aware). However, please be aware that nuts and nut-based products are not allowed at infants or juniors, due to a number of children having severe nut allergies.
For break-time we would ask that the children bring in a piece of fruit or vegetable as this is consistent with snacks provided by the Government, for our infant children. 
Unfortunately, due to COVID restrictions our water fountains are no longer in use. Therefore, please send your child to school with a water bottle, regardless of whether they are having a pack lunch or a school dinner.  


Regular attendance at school is a legal requirement, it is your duty to ensure your children get to school every day. We monitor all pupils lateness, absence and attendance levels. To be on time your child needs to be in School before the gates shut. Infant children must be accompanied by their parent or carer and walked to the school playground. If you need to go to the school office or have medicine to bring in, please drop your child at the playground or drop off zone first. Children should not be brought in through the main school entrance unless they are late.

Should your child be too ill to attend school their absence must be reported to the school, before registration, in the morning by telephone or email. Please leave a message on the telephone absence line or use the Parentmail app.

Permission must be sought from the Headteacher for all absences other than illness. Please ask at the school office for an absence request form.



If you are running late please take your child into school via the office. They will need to be signed in by an adult, lunch ordered and a reason given for lateness.



If you need to collect your child early for an appointment, please inform the office and provide a letter, appointment card etc. so a copy can be put in your child’s file.

Please try and book appointments outside of school hours if possible.
