You are here: Parents - The School Day

We strive to ensure a smooth and calm start to the day, ensuring that when children enter school they are ready to learn. The gates to school will be open at 8:40am, and classroom doors will open at 8:45am. This allows for a timely entrance in to school and also time if you need to speak with your child’s class teacher.

We have tried to keep the playground area calm, with many parents following the one way system introduced in September 2021. This does reduce congestion and keeps the movement of people flowing.

As children arrive at the school door, they will go straight in to school. No queuing, waiting or congestion around the doors please, to keep children and safe.

The gates will be unlocked at 3:10pm to allow for collection. Children will exit school in a calm and orderly manner. Individual children’s names will be called, as part of our safeguarding procedures once an adult has arrived and they will be watched carefully over to the adult collecting. We recognise that this may take time, however we are sure you understand that this is to keep all children in our school community safe.
