The School Day

Our school start times are as follows: 



Doors open at 9am


Reception and KS1

8:40am - doors open

8:50am - doors and register closes



8:50am - doors open

9:00am - doors and register closes


All external doors/gates close promptly at 9.05am.

If your child/children arrive in school after their register closes, this will be an unauthorised absence and may incur a fixed penalty notice.

At Knebworth School, we expect all pupils to be in and ready for learning on time as this promotes strong learning and progress.


At the end of the school day the gate is open to parents at 3pm.

Please be aware that for safeguarding reasons the main gate is closed at 3:30pm, as after school clubs take place on school premises.

If you are unable to collect your child from school we require written permission to release your child to another adult. In an emergency please ensure you contact the school office.
