The School Day

School starts at 8.45 a.m. and finishes at 3.15 p.m. for children in Years R, 1 and 2, and at 3.20 for Years 3, 4, 5, and 6 children.


Lunchtime is

  • Reception    11:55am to 1:00pm
  • Year 1          12:05pm to 1:10pm
  • Year 2          12:10pm to 1:15pm
  • Years 3 to 6  12:15pm to 1:20pm


We operate a gradual start to the school day with classroom doors opening from 08.35 and the bell for the start of school sounding at 08.43 when all remaining children leave the playground and enter their classrooms and any parents leave the premises.  It is important that children are not late for school. Late arrival in the classroom can be upsetting for your child and can disrupt the smooth running of the school. If a child is repeatedly late, we will contact parents in order to identify the reason for the lateness. For instance, it may be that a child dawdles on the way to school without the parent's knowledge! In the case of persistent lateness, we may have to involve the Welfare Officer who will visit the child's home to work with parents to resolve the problem. 

Parking in the school is restricted to disabled access only.  As the school is in a residential area, we would appreciate it if you would park considerately.
