Opening Times

The School Day

All children should arrive in school between 8:45 and 9:00 a.m.  From 8:45 a.m. the gates open and we encourage all children to arrive as close to that time as possible so they can get ready for formal lessons to begin promptly at 9:00 a.m. A member of staff greets all children in the morning at each gate or door.

At the beginning and end of the school day, parents are encouraged to bring their child to the Key Stage gates or doors. This helps to build a close relationship between home and school – we want to have good links with all parents. If normal arrangements have to be altered (e.g. you are delayed or another person is collecting your child) please let us know. This avoids any confusion or upset.




To get to and from school, walking is the best option!

If you do need to travel by car, please park with consideration for our neighbours.
