School Day and Term Dates

The school day starts at 8.55am. There is supervision on the upper playground from 8.35am and doors open at 8.45am. Parents are welcome in school during the morning activities and staff are available in their classrooms if you need to speak or arrange a time to do so. We ask that parents and carers leave promptly when the registration bell sounds at 8.55am.

All pupils have a morning break from 10.15-10.30am and lunchtime is from 12.00-1.00pm.

The school day ends at 3.20pm. Please be aware that we operate a 'palm to palm' policy for our youngest pupils - please come forward to collect your child from their teacher or staff member. This ensures we know all pupils have been collected by the right person.
