School Routine

All children need to register at 8:50am and 1:00pm. Parents should contact school as early as possible on the first day of absence, and every subsequent day. A written request should be made if you wish to take a child out of school for medical or dental appointments and holidays.

Nursery times for the current year are 8:50am until 12 noon each day. Lunch club is available until 12:45pm every day at a charge of £2.50 per day. You may pre-order a school meal or provide a packed lunch for your child.

 

Children may enter the school playground from 8:40am each day. Children are not supervised until this time, therefore the school takes no responsibility for their safety and well-being prior to 8:40am. Pedestrian access to the school is via the small gate at the front of the school, not through the car park. Please do not send children before 8:40am. Although staff are in attendance early, they are working to prepare for the day’s lessons and are unable to supervise the children before 8:40am. The bell is rung at 8:50am each morning. Playtimes are of course always supervised.

 

Please see the sections later on in this brochure regarding Breakfast Club and After School Club which can offer care for your child from 8am – 6pm on school days.

 

 

Home to School Transport

Children that arrive by school bus or taxi are met at the bus/taxi by a member of staff and escorted onto the school premises, likewise at the end of the school day, children are escorted onto the school bus by members of staff. Unless written notification is received from a parent advising of a change, bus children will always be placed on the bus, etc. We do not accept verbal instructions from children, e.g. ‘I am going to a friend's tonight and will not be on the bus’. This rule is to ensure your child’s safety.

 

Only children that possess a valid bus pass may travel on the school buses. The bus companies are not insured to transport children that do not have a bus pass.  An application form for home to school transport may be obtained from the school office.

                            

 

 

End of Day

Please ensure that you give the school clear instructions for your child concerning their arrangements for travelling home. Unless informed otherwise, class teachers will expect that their children are to be collected from the playground at the end of the day by their parent/carer. If you allow your child to walk home, be collected by another parent, etc, please ensure that we are informed in writing of these arrangements in advance or contacted as early in the day as possible for a one-off occurrence. If you wish to advise the school of long term arrangements please do so in writing.
