School Day

Timings of the School day


All children in the EYFS class and Years 1-5 must be brought to school and collected at the end of the day by an adult. The school drop off is between 8.45 am and 9.00 am and children should be dropped off during this period. Registration is at 9.00am and after this time children will be marked as late. Alternative arrangements are made if your child attends before or after school club.

If you are going to be late collecting your child at home time you need to inform school and make alternate arrangements. Whilst we understand that problems can arise, parents may be charged if they are late to collect their child from school.

School times


Parents should ensure that children arrive at school on time at the start of the day and are collected promptly at the end of school. We work closely with our school attendance officer to resolve any issues around late arrivals.
