The School Day
From 8.30 am the school door from the playground will be open and monitored by a member of staff for children to enter school. Children walk into school sensibly and quietly. Parents must not leave their children before 8.30 am as they are unsupervised and remain the parent’s/carer’s responsibility.
8.35 am A short Staff Meeting is held to look at the forthcoming events or Teachers meet with their Teaching Assistants.
8.45 am School begins
Late pupils to enter 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).
10.30 - 10.45 am Morning Break time. Children who have milk drink this now then healthy snacks are eaten on the playground. Class One and Two children 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 approximately 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 class room doors.
At 3.10 pm 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. After school clubs children (except for those in Home to School club) are delivered back on to the playground where parents must come to collect them. Please do not come into the school at the end of clubs.
Parents must collect their children from the playground before 3.25pm.
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.
