The School Day

The start and end of the school day varies across the year groups.  Registers close 10 minutes after the year groups designated start time.

Under normal circumstances, there is a soft opening from 8:50am and the school day starts promptly at 9am.  All external doors/gates close promptly at 9am.

Registers are marked at 9am and your child will receive a late mark (L) if they are not in school by that time.

At 9.10am the registers will be closed.  If your child arrives after this time it will be recorded as an unauthorised late (this counts as an unauthorised absence)

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.
