School day and information

The School Day:

  • The School gates open at 8.35am and close at 8.45am.​

  • If you are late once the gate is closed, you will need to come and sign children in. If this is past 9 am this is unauthorised unless informed beforehand for a viable reason. ​

  • If your child is absent please call the school office on 01296 712622 to inform us of their absence and why by 9.30am. ​

  • The end of the school day is at 3.15pm, please come into the playground at the front of school for collection so that this is safer for dismissal and allows for communication between staff and parents.​
