The school day starts with a bell at 8:45 a.m. for all children to line up in the playground, when the teachers take their classes into the classrooms. The register is taken electronically from 9:00 a.m. and submitted by 9:10 a.m.
Registers are regularly checked by the Education Welfare Officer (EWO). If you have concerns about a child’s attendance or punctuality, the office should be notified.
- Pupils arriving after 9:10 a.m. are marked by the office as late (L).
- Pupils arriving after 9:30 a.m. without prior or written reason are marked by the office as unauthorised absence (U) when they arrive in school.
The School Day
|End of school day:||15:15|
An Act of Collective Worship or assembly takes place every day in the school hall at 9:10 a.m. until 9:30 a.m.
At the end of the school day the school gates are opened at 3:00 p.m. At 3:15 the bell is rung and KS2 classes are lined up in the Junior playground. Adults collecting the children should report to the class teacher on the playground or for KS1 children to the class teacher in the respective classrooms.
If you cannot pick up your child, we ask you inform the school of the person who will be collecting them. If we have not been informed of the person collecting, we will keep the child with us until we are absolutely sure of the arrangements.
No child may be collected by another child or sibling under the age of 16 years.
We ask that the playground is vacated by 3:30 p.m. at the very latest so that After School Clubs can commence and staff can attend meetings knowing that each child is safely with an adult. Late collection can cause distress to your child and should be avoided.
If the school is closed due to bad weather, parents will be informed by the school texting service and on the school website.
The school is organised in three stages: the Foundation stage ( Reception class), Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2) and Key Stage 2 (Years 3 to 6). Each class has places for 30 children.
Your child’s first class will usually be the Reception class. It is for children aged 4 to 5 years old. It has one dedicated class teacher. If your child joins later on, the class they join will always be dependent on their age.
These will be Year 1 for 5-6 year olds, Year 2 for 6-7 year olds, Year 3 for 7-8 year olds, Year 4 for 8-9 year olds, Year 5 for 9-10 year olds and Year 6 for 10-11 year olds.
Each class has its own class teacher. All our teachers are fully qualified to work with primary aged children and together have a wide, rich range of experience, abilities and skills which they bring to the life and work of the school. Our class teachers are assisted by a dedicated and experienced team of support staff, including office staff and our site manager.
