School Day

Arriving at School

Children should arrive between 8.30am and 8.40am, lined up ready for 8.45am.

As the playground is only supervised from this time, please ensure your child does not arrive before 8.30am. There is no formal supervision from staff until the doors are opened. 

Children are not permitted to use the playground equipment, including wooden activity trails and tyres without staff supervision. It should not be used by children under the supervision of their parents or carers.  Your child’s safety is our prime concern. Please note that after 8.55am, the Site Manager will close the school gates.

Late Arrivals

All children arriving after 8.50am will need to report to the main reception to be signed in  and will be registered as late. This will appear on your child’s attendance record. Please try to ensure your child arrives on time.
