The School Day

Morning Session 8.50am to 12.10pm
Afternoon Session 1.00pm to 3.10pm

The school day starts at 8.50am. However, the children may arrive at school from 8.35am and go straight into the classroom. It is quite acceptable for you to accompany them, especially in Squirrels Class, but as the children grow up we encourage you to say goodbye to them at the door which helps their independence.

Unless your child is attending an after school club they will leave via their classroom’s outside door at 3.10pm. Children in Reception and Classes 1 and 2 will not be allowed to leave until we have seen you. Children in the junior classes are free to exit the building to find the person collecting them unless you tell us otherwise.
