The School Day
The school day begins at 8:50am and finishes 3:15pm.
The morning session is 8:50am – 12:15pm and the afternoon session 1:15pm – 3:15pm.
Children have a supervised break of 20 minutes in the morning when we benefit from the National Fruit and Veg scheme, providing a variety of fruit and vegetables each day in EYFS and KS1. Children may bring in their own fruit for snack times.
For reasons of health and to prevent litter in the school grounds, sweets are not allowed at any time during the school day.
Children may not leave the school premises during the day without the written consent of parents.
It is very important that children are punctual and attend school regularly. Please inform us of absences by email, telephone or leave an answer-phone message by 9.00am.
Children should attend school for the full academic year and absences will only be granted in exceptional circumstances following strict criteria. Under current Department of Education legislation, headteachers are not allowed to authorise any holiday taken during term time.
If you are unavoidably delayed at the end of the day please contact school. Your child will stay in school with a member of staff. If you have made alternative arrangements for collecting your child, please let the school know.
Please see our Collecting Children from School policy for more information.
