Our School Day

Our School Offices are open from 8.30am until 4.00pm.  

EYFS and KS1


School gates open    8.30am

School bell goes:        8.40am

School begins:            8.50am

Morning break:            10.20-10.40am

Lunch break:               12.00-1.00pm

School finishes:            3.15pm

Children arriving between 8.40am-8.50am may go straight to class and settle down with quiet learning activities until register time.  At 8.50am the gates are shut and the registers are taken.  Any children arriving after this time are late and they should be taken to the School Office by a parent, who will sign them in.

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.  

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.
