Arriving at School

Arriving at schoolOur school gates open at 8:45am when children should come straight into their classrooms.  We expect all children to be on time for school, arriving no later than 8:55. Parents, of all children are expected to wait with them until 8.45am when teachers open their classrooms, as we cannot accept liability for children before the start of the school day. Additionally, for safety reasons, a responsible adult must collect children at the end of the school day. The teacher in charge of the classroom will not send children out until they are sure they will be safe. If there is ever a problem and parents are delayed, please be assured that we will look after your children until you arrive.

Playtimes

All children have a playtime during the morning for 15 minutes. In all but the most inclement weather the children are encouraged to make use of the outside environment and should therefore have a coat available. Nursery, Reception & KS1 children also have a 15 minute break at 2.30pm. During the morning break, the children are encouraged to have a healthy snack. Reception and KS1 children are provided with a piece of fruit, KS2 children can either bring in a piece of fruit or vegetable. Under 5’s also receive free school milk. Throughout the day (both during lessons and break times) children are able to access fresh water to drink.
