School Timings

Gates open at 8:50am for a Soft Start.  

Children in y1-y6 go independently into their classes where their teachers have set up for an active start to the day with opportunities such as maths challenges, spelling games or reading.

This enables children to be in class and ready to begin lessons at: 9am

Reception children are met by their teachers in the playground.


Part-time Morning children arrive from 8:50 and are collected at 12pm

Part-time Afternoon children arrive from 12:30 and are collected at 3:30pm

Please make sure you support your child to come to school on time.  We value punctuality as a practice in itself, and also as a way to avoid any missed learning. 

Any child who enters the school grounds after 9.00 am will be registered late by the Pastoral Care team, who will be positioned by the small Smithy Street entrance. Children arriving later than 9.05 must go to the main school office to be registered. Regular latecomers and parents will be supported in order to make time keeping changes.


We kindly ask for all parents and carers to follow our one-way system to collect their children at the end of the day from 3:30pm.

We especially ask that people do not cut through the lines of year 2 and year 4 children as this can make visibility an issue and could lead to a safeguarding issue.  

Take a look at the arrows on the picture below to show you the routes we kindly ask you to follow.

If you need to get to the lost property boxes or office, please follow the bright pink arrows. 

We appreciate your calm, patience and respect in helping us to keep to our one-way system.  Many thanks.
