The School Day

School is open for pupils from 08:45 until 15:15 (32 hours and 30 minutes per week) and the official school start time is 08:45 when registers are taken (compulsory school hours of 32 hours and 30 minutes per week). Children should be in school, ready to learn, by 08:45 at the latest.

Please note that we operate a one way system on the school gates at the start and end of the school day – please come in the ‘nursery’ gate and leave by main playground gate. Each morning the Headteacher and a member of our staff will be on the ‘entry’ gate to greet children and families, and at the end of the day two members of staff will be at the ‘exit’ gate to say goodbye!

The gates at the front of school will be locked at 08:55 for safeguarding reasons – children arriving after this time should enter school via the office.

Four mornings a week, at 09:30, we gather as a whole school community for collective worship.

Parents are most welcome to join us on Thursdays at 09:30.

Every Friday children plan, prepare and lead their own child led liturgies for their own class. These liturgies take place in the classroom, hall or even outside depending on what the children choose.

Please note that from Monday 6th November the morning gate will open at 8:40, as explained in Mrs Statham’s October Newsletter.
