Our School Day

We currently have a staggered school start. You can see the times for the different year groups on our Covid Guidance Page. The school day starts at 8.50am and finishes at 3.15pm.  If your child arrives after registration they will receive a late mark which will affect their attendance.

Children Being Brought to and Collected from School

Children in Nursery (FS1), Reception (FS2), Year 1, Year 2 and Year 3 must be brought to school, and collected at home time, by a responsible adult. In a morning, the accompanying adult MUST supervise the child on the school site and is responsible for the child’s safety until the child enters the school building. Adults wishing to collect children must be 16+ years of age and be listed in the school’s records as being authorised, by the parent/carer, to collect the child. Children can only be collected by adults who are listed on the ‘consent to collect’ list.

Children in Year 4 can come to school unaccompanied. Parents/carers of Year 4 children must give permission for their Year 4 child to leave school alone at home time. If a signed permission slip is not received, children will NOT be permitted to leave the school unaccompanied. A ‘consent to collect’ form must be completed and the child must be collected by an authorised adult.

Children in Years 5 and 6 can come to school unaccompanied and are automatically allowed to leave school alone at home time. If a parent/carer would like the school to ensure their child is collected, a ‘consent to collect’ form must be completed.
