The KS1 and KS2 doors open at 8.40am and pupils can come in at anytime after that until the official start of the school day at 8.55am. Staff members are on the doors and parents are requested not to enter the building as a health and safety measure.


Parents are urged to see that pupils are presented in good time and to avoid the embarrassment of being late. Remember though that no responsibility can be accepted for the safety and welfare of pupils before school begins. Furthermore, no responsibility can be assumed for children remaining on the premises after the close of afternoon school unless they are involved in an organised club.


All infant children must be collected from the school by their parents unless permission is given by the parent for them to be collected by someone else. We also need to be informed if children are to be collected by other adults. We strongly recommend that children of infant age be not allowed to go home alone. Children who are not collected will wait in the office with a member of staff until such a time as they are. Junior children who are not met also wait in this area and not outside school, for reasons of safety. Infant classes are taken to the infant playground for collection. Juniors are brought out to the KS2 play ground by their teacher.


On morning when it is raining heavily, the school will open at 8.40am. Pupils should enter through their regular entrances. Please do not enter through the main entrance (school office) on wet mornings.


It is extremely important that children are collected on time. Staff have regular duties and meetings to attend after school and are not available for child care. 


What does your child learn at school each day? Find information about our curriculum subjects on the curriculum page on the website. Please be aware that, particularly in Maths and English, pupils are often working on curriculum areas either above or below their chronological age depending on their ability.
