The school day starts at 8.55am with our EYFS and KS1 pupils entering the school via their cloakroom entrance at the front of the school, under the canopied area. Our KS2 pupils, make their way to the back of the building, via the footpath located to the left of the building. Here they will enter the playground area; their cloakroom is located at the rear of the building, near the swimming pool.
The packed lunch trolley is located at the front of the school under the canopy; all pupils who have a packed lunch may leave their lunch bags/boxes on the trolley.
8.55am Registration takes place, during which lunch tickets are collected in by the class teacher, with pupils giving their options via their tickets.

*Collective worship is a valued part of our daily routine. On the days that pupils are not in the hall for collective worship, they can be found within their classroom using this time, at any point during the day, for quiet reflection as directed by their classteacher, but following the PSHE curriculum. This is to allow for greater flexibility to the school timetable and teachers to complete certain aspects of the National Curriculum.
Health & Safety
Key Stage 1 Children
We feel that all Key Stage 1 children need to be in the care of a responsible adult until school begins in the morning. Please do not leave your young children unsupervised in school or in the playground.
Please note, that following a Health and Safety inspection, the metal climbing frame structure in the playground is NOT suitable for pupils in KS1. When parents are waiting for older siblings to finish an after school activity, they should be mindful of this and ensure that young children do not climb on the metal structure. As an alternative, the wooden climbing structure is suitable for all pupils.
Key Stage 1 + 2 Children
We need to know whom to entrust your child with at the end of the day, therefore if there is any change from the usual routine, please let the teacher know, either by letter, in person, or by telephone in an emergency. Please collect your child promptly at the end of the school day as children often become distressed if a parent is not there.
Supervision becomes increasingly difficult after school hours due to staff meetings and other commitments. For safety reasons, the school endeavours to keep a record of all children walking to and from school unaccompanied. Could you please inform the class teacher if your child should be added to the list.
