The School Day  

There is supervision on the playground from 8.30 am where all school children should be delivered – Parents must not leave their children before 8.30 am as they are unsupervised and remain the parent’s/carer’s responsibility. 

The Playground Supervisor will show you where to put lunchboxes, school bags and water bottles.

8.35 am                      A short Staff Meeting is held to look at the day’s events. 

8.40 am                      School begins – On  the first whistle children stand quietly then on the second whistle they walk into school sensibly and quietly, in year groups or classes.Teachers and Head teacher (if available) go onto the yard to meet the children and discuss any of the day’s concerns with parents or carers.

Late pupils to enter the school via the Main Entrance and be entered in the late book, at the reception, by parent/carer.  Please do not drop your children off at the bottom of the drive and leave them to enter the school alone. 

On Fridays - Parents are invited to Golden assembly at 9.00 am (they enter and leave the hall through the fire exit from the playground directly in to the hall to keep disruption to a minimum for the children).  Sometimes, due to other school events, this assembly is held at 2.30 pm instead – please check the newsletter or website news. 

10.30 - 10.45 am      Morning Break time. Children who have milk drink this now then healthy snacks are eaten on the playground.  The children all receive free fruit. 

12.00 - 1.05 pm         Lunch Time.  Children wash their hands before eating. Children with packed lunches and hot lunches all eat together in the hall first and then go outside to play afterwards at approx 12.30 pm. 

3.05 pm                      We end the school day with a prayer :-

‘Lord keep us safe each night, secure from all our fears, may angels guard us while we sleep until morning light appears, Amen’.  

Children from Class 1 and 2 may be collected from their classroom doors at 3.10pm then all children who have not been collected join Class 3 children on the playground where they are supervised until their parents come to collect them or until the after school clubs commence at 3.25pm.

Parents must collect their children from the playground before 3.25pm.

After school clubs children are delivered back on to the playground for parents to collect them. Please do not come into the school at the end of clubs.

The school asks for written notification from parents of any change in who will collect their children from school whether it is to be a regular arrangement or a ‘one off’.

The Head teacher is usually in School between 8.15 a.m. and 5.45 p.m. and will be pleased to see parents by appointment at any time between these hours if they feel the matter is of a confidential nature.
