Our school day and procedures

In this section you can find out useful information regarding our school timings and procedures.



The School Gates open at 8.40am.  At this time the Principal or Vice Principal will be out on the playground to welcome the children and a member of staff on each door to welcome the relevant class.

If children arrive after 8.50am, when the last class arrives they will have to report to the office and will be marked as 'late' in the register.  Please use the free car park on Fairfield Road when dropping off and collecting children – only use Springfield Road if your child is coming in or leaving school during school hours.


The school day begins at 8.40am when the gates open, lessons start at 8.50am and finish at 3.30pm.


Total hours weekly:


KS1 = 25.75 (excluding breaks)

KS2 = 26.25 (excluding breaks)


Before School Club : 7.30am – 8.45am

After School Club: 3.30pm - 6pm



If your child is unwell please try to telephone or email ( the school before 8:30am to report the absence.  We operate a safe child policy and if a child is absent and we have not been notified you, we will text and or ring you.

Home School Links

Children have a book in their bags which is used as a reading diary and form of two-way communication between parent and teacher.  Parents are also kept informed of learning in class through Class Dojo and via our Facebook page.



Medicines can be administered in school if parents complete the relevant paperwork at the office.



Should your child require an inhaler whilst attending our school, please complete an Asthma Care Plan form.



On the day of the week that your child has PE, they should come to school in their PE Kit.  This saves time during the day and means that the children are active for their full 2 hours of physical activity each week.
