The School Day

We teach approximately 25 hours per week, including religious education and physical education but excluding the statutory daily act of collective worship, registration, morning breaks and lunchtimes.

The school doors open at 8.50 am with prompt registration at 9.00 am.
Children are admitted to and from the school building via the cloakroom doors

On the rare occasion that your child arrives after 9.00 am parents will have to come into school via the main entrance and your child will be logged in the ‘Late Book’ so that we can update our registers.

In our experience, children have a happier start to the school day if they arrive on time. Late arrivals can be unsettling – but better late than not at all!

We encourage children to be as independent as possible and ask parents to say ‘good bye’ at the cloakroom door. All children have clearly marked hooks for bags and coats. Book bags are stored in class boxes in the classroom.

Collecting your child

Please collect your child at 3.20 pm

Staff will bring the children to the cloakroom doors and check that each child is met by their parent/guardian, or another adult by prior arrangement.

If someone different is picking up your child, or you are delayed, please let us know.

Please note, it is recommended that no-one under 16 should be left to care for an infant. This includes an elder child walking a younger child to and from school, where a level of care and responsibility is required.

Children can therefore only be collected by older brothers and sisters with agreement by the school

School Crossing

There is a zebra crossing on Marton Road and a lollipop man in the morning from 8.40 am and in the afternoon from 3.15 pm – 3.45 pm to help everyone cross this busy road safely.

Please encourage your child to always use this on the way to and from school.


To ensure the safety of all the children on our busy school site, parents are NOT allowed to use the school car park, which serves both the Infant and Junior Schools. The car park is for the use of staff only and must be kept clear at all times for emergency access.
