The School Day


Children enter School 8.45am
Registration 9.00am
Morning Break 10.30am to 10.45am
Lunch 12 noon to 1.00pm
Afternoon Break (Reception/KS1 only) 2.30pm to 2.45pm
End of School 3.15pm



Children arrive at school via the Church path entrance.  The gate is opened at 8.45am and the children are greeted by the Academy  Principal and FLO (or another member of staff in her absence).  Children should not be left  earlier than this unless arrangements have been made with the school.  This is to ensure the safety of your child which is paramount. The gate closes at 8.55am. 


At the end of the school day the children should be met by parents at the rear of the school.  We ask that parents park either outside of the school gates (but NOT on the zigzag lines) or in the Church car park to ensure the safety of all children walking home. 


Should your child arrive late at school, can you please ensure that you and your child report to the school office so that he/she may be added to the register.  If you wish to take your child early from school for an appointment, again please report to the office and your child will be sent for.  Please sign your child in and out of the building. 


Parents are reminded that children should be in school for every session unless the child is sick.  Absence for holidays in term time cannot be authorised by the Academy Principal unless there are considered to be 'exceptional circumstances.  Any requests during May for Year 2 and Year 6 children will be denied because of the SATs tests which take place then.
