Diary Dates & Opening Hours

Start of day - doors open at 08:35. Door closed at 8:45

Registration at 8:45

Children arriving after 8:45 will be marked as late.

Children arriving after 9:15 will be marked as U - arrived after register closed. 

School finishes at 3:15 for all children.


We expect all children to arrive on time and ready to learn. Children who've eaten breakfast at home or in school are far more ready to learn than those snacking on the way or missing breakfast completely. 

The start of day are not only important for children's emotional well-being and settling into the busy school day but they are key times for learning. Children arriving late have a disregulated start to the day and also impact on the learning of others when having to have a lesson explained because they missed the start of day. In Early Years and Key Stage 1 we start the morning with phonics - fundamental to children learning to read and write. Children arriving late miss their short phonics daily input. Others are embarrassed and insecure walking into class after lessons have started. This is why we have a staggered morning session without lining up - children can arrive between 8:35 and 8:45 so all can enjoy a positive start to the day.
