ROUTINES

What time does school start?

8.45am

What time does school end?

3.00pm

When will my child start in Reception?

We have a staggered intake into reception for the first two to three weeks of the autumn term.

Where do I drop my child off/collect them from?

Each classroom has a door that leads directly to the playground. You should bring your child there in the morning and collect from there at the end of the school day. Outside normal hours, including for late arrivals you should come to the front entrance.

What if my child is late getting in to school?

If the classroom door has been locked you will need to come to the main entrance and sign your child into school in the late book.

What if I’m late picking up?

Phone the school office as soon as you can. Your child will usually wait at reception, or with their class teacher. You would need to collect them from the office when you do arrive at school.

What if my child is going home with someone else?

For arrangements known in advance, inform your child’s class teacher when you drop them off. For last minute arrangements, please phone the school office who will make sure your child and their class teacher are made aware.

Can I park at the school?

There is limited parking at the bottom of West Bank, outside school. We encourage all parents to use the car park at the church of Latter Day Saints at the top of West Bank and walk down to school.

Parents must not use the staff car park and must always park considerately outside our neightbours houses, not blocking any driveways, including not parking opposite them.

Can my child cycle to school?

Yes. We have cycle and scooter racks at the front and back of school.

All cyclists should dismount on entering the school grounds. Children below Y5 should be accompanied.

Can my child walk to school alone?

Children younger than Y5 should be accompanied to school however they are travelling.

What should my child bring to school each day?

Their reading book, planner and a water bottle.

Older children may bring a pencil case and may have homework to bring between home and school. PE Kits can be left at school and will be sent home to wash periodically.
