The School Day

Access to school 

The school gates open at 8:35am to give children plenty of time to get into class by 8:45am.  Pre-School will open at 8:45, when children will be met at the Pre-School gate by staff.  Children will enter via their designated entrance points:

  • Year 6 – Main School entrance
  • Year 5 – Year 5 entrance
  • Year 4 – Year 4 entrance
  • Years 3&2 – Conservatory entrance from the playground
  • Year 1 – Year 1 outdoor area entrance
  • Year Reception – The annexe main door
  • Pre-School - Pre-School outdoor gate

The school day starts at 8.45 a.m. and finishes at 3.15 p.m.  This equates to 32.5 hours per week.

It is important that your child arrives at school on time each day to allow them to settle for registration and the first lesson. Teaching begins promptly and children need to be present for the start of the lesson.
