Our School Day

Our School Offices are open from 8.30am until 4.00pm.  If you wish to speak to someone in the office we advise you to call wherever possible. If you are at the school you will be asked to press the buzzer and then wait outside until someone can come and see you.

In September our start and end times will be staggered to allow for social distancing.

Key Stage One will start at 8.30am and finish at 3.00pm

Key Stage Two will start at 8.45am and finish at 3.15pm

Early Years will start at 9.00am and finish at 3.00pm

Children in Early Years and Key Stage One will be met on the playground by their class teacher and then taken into class.

In Key Stage Two, any children in a classroom downstairs will be met at the classroom door by their teacher. Children in an upstairs classroom will be met on the playground by their teacher.

If a child arrives late they need to report to the main reception, wait outside and then they will be taken to their classroom.


Lunch Time Arrangements

We encourage healthy eating at school.  If you are providing a packed lunch, please ensure there are no fizzy drinks or chocolate and sweets.  We have a number of children attending our school with severe food allergies, therefore we must ask that no nuts, eggs or marmite is brought into school.

Lunchtimes will be staggered;

Early Years, Key Stage One and Year 3/4 will have their lunch from 11.45am - 12.45pm

Years 5 and 6 will have their lunch from 12.15pm - 1.15pm



Home Time Arrangements

Please inform the class teacher if there are any changes to the arrangements for collecting your child as we are always concerned for the safety of the children.  Please ensure that we have up-to-date records for contacts numbers including work, mobile and home phone numbers.

If you are unable to collect your child from school and they are expecting you, please arrange for somebody else to meet your child and contact the School Office so that we can inform your child and their teacher.

Teachers regularly remind the children never to go with strangers and never to leave the gate if they have not been met - they are told to come back into school, where a member of staff will phone home.  We hope parents will reinforce this important message regularly with their child.  Please help us to keep your child safe.

Travel Plan

Our school has a Travel Plan to promote walking and cycling to school.  This is to help children develop a healthier lifestyle, to improve road safety, and to reduce congestion around the school.  We support national and international "Walk to School Weeks", when children contribute to a class chart showing how they have come to school.  There is a Puffin Crossing on the Middleton Road,  please encourage the children to use this facility for their personal safety.  

There are cycle racks at both the KS1 and KS2 areas where children can lock their cycles safely during the day.  We have a simple cycle permit that we encourage parents to complete if they wish their child to cycle, setting out our expectations for safe cycling.

We encourage parents to park a short distance from the school and then walk. Please be considerate to our local residents if you are parking a car, and, for the safety of our children, do not park at any time on prohibited areas (zig-zag lines), or in the bus lay-by.
