The School Day


The school day starts at 0900 however children can enter class from 08.55 onwards. Children must not arrive at school before 0845, unless they have been specifically instructed to do so to practise music, rehearse dramatic productions or complete work, etc. The school cannot accept responsibility for the safety and welfare of pupils attending school without permission before this time. From this time on, there are teachers on duty on each of the playground. If you need to leave your child unattended please make the teaher on duty aware.

The end of the school day is at 1520 for both infants and juniors to allow for families to return home together. Children are not detained in school for any reason. However, occasionally a child may be asked to stay behind while a discussion takes place with the parent/carer.
