School officially begins at 8.50am. We are unable to take responsibility for the children until 15 minutes before school begins and therefore advise that children should not be left alone on the playground until 8.35am.
Parents arriving by car are asked to be considerate towards our neighbours when dropping your children off and remain outside the school gates—the school car park is not a safe place for children.
Any child arriving after 8.50am will be recorded as late on our school records; any child arriving after 9am when the registration period closes will be recorded as late on official attendance records that we have to maintain by law.
There is a morning break of 15 minutes and we allow an hour for lunch, during which time the children will go onto the field if it is dry.
The school day ends at 3.05pm. Parents are invited to wait for the children on the playground and class teachers will accompany them out of the building. Any children not collected are brought back to the school office where calls are made to ensure their safe passage home.
