 The doors are opened each morning at 8:45 a.m. in order for school to start promptly at 8:55 a.m - children arriving after this time are classed as late.

  * It is a legal duty of Parents/ Carers to ensure your child attends school regularly and punctually.

School finishes at 3:25 p.m. (1.05 p.m. Fridays) and it is expected that parents make the appropriate arrangements for their child / children to be collected promptly.

Your child should know who is collecting him/her at hometime.  The children are told to come back into school and sit outside of the school office if the person collecting them is late. Y4, 5 and 6 children must be collected from the Junior School playground. Y3 pupils are collected from opposite the Y3 door facing the Infant Playground

If someone else is collecting your child, you must inform the school. Please do not be late at the end of the school day. Frequent late collections will result in you being charged childcare.

If a child is not collected at the end of the school day (3:25 p.m./ 1.05 p.m. Fri) and we have had no contact / cannot contact the person(s) with Parental Responsibility, we will contact the Children’s Information and Advice Service after one hour.
