Parents of Nursery PM children who have a sibling in school can pick their Nursery child up at 2:30pm on Fridays - but this must be a permanent arrangement and a request must be given in writing to Mrs Jaspal (Nursery teacher).

Reception, Years 1 & 2

Doors open at 8.40am and close again at 8:50am.  The register will be taken at 8.50am. Lessons start at 9.00. If you need to speak to the teacher about your child then it is best to make an after school appointment. Any messages can be written in the Home School Book.  The playtrails are strictly out of bounds before and after school for health and safety reasons.  The children are the parents' responsibility until they have been dropped into class between 8:40-8:50am.
Lunch is at 12:00 for Year 1 and 12:10 for Year 2, with Year 1 finishing at 12.55 pm and Year 2 at 1:10pm. School ends 3.15pm on Monday - Thursday and 2:30pm on Friday. Please collect your child promptly.

Door opens at 8.35am. The register is taken at 8.40am. Lessons begin promptly at 8.50am. The playground is not supervised before 8.25am. Children must not be left on their own; (children remain parents’ responsibility until 8.25am). The playtrails are strictly out of bounds before and after school for health and safety reasons. No ball games allowed before school. Lunch 12.20 to 1.10 pm. School ends 3.20pm on Monday - Thursday and 2:30pm on Friday. Please collect your child promptly.

Please note that the accumulated minutes will allow the school to finish at 2:30pm every Friday.

Lateness

If your child is late for school (after the register has been taken), you must enter the school via the Reception/Office at the front of the school and register your child as late.

Home time

At the end of the school day, we anticipate that children in Year 3 will be collected by a responsible person. Year 4 pupils can walk to the end of Woodstock Avenue with written parental permission. All children who walk to the end of Woodstock Avenue to meet parents MUST be reminded to return to school if no-one turns up within a short 10 minute period of time from the school closing so that you can be contacted.  Year 5 and 6 can walk home with parental permission, in writing to the class teacher.
