The school day begins at 8.50am. External gates are opened at 8.50am to enable children to walk onto the school site. Children are greeted by staff. Parents and carers are asked to hand their child to a member of staff at the gate wherever possible.
Children are asked not to arrive at school before 8.50am unless they have a pre-arranged Early Birds or Breakfast Club place.
The caretaker begins to lock the gates from 9am and can’t wait for parents who are late. If the gates are locked please use the main entrance.

Please realise the importance of a punctual start to the day for your child to ensure that no essential instructions are missed.
Lunchtimes are staggered to ease congestion in the dining hall and playground.
If you are coming to school by car arrive in plenty of time because the area around school becomes very congested and you may need to park a considerable distance away.
Weekly Reward System
We have a reward system each week where a child can win £5.00. All children enter a weekly draw, which is drawn in an assembly on Friday. If the child picked has been in school all week they win £5.00, if they haven’t then the money rolls over to the following week. Draws are made for Key stage 1, 2 and Reception.
