Key Stage 1   8.50am - 11.45am     12.45pm - 3.05pm

Key Stage 2   9am - 12.15pm      1.15pm - 3.15pm

Pupils arriving after 9am need to enter school via the school office and the adult with them must sign them in.


Please inform us by telephone before 9.15am on each day of your child's absence.  If we are not aware of any reason of your child's absence the Administration staff will telephone parents after 9.15am.  This contact will ensure all children have arrived safely at school. A late book is situated in the entrance hall and all children arriving on the premises late will need to be signed in.  All external entrances will be locked at 9.00am for safety reasons. 

Children returning to school after illness should be free from infection and fit to be in school. If your child suffers from sickness or diarrhea then you should keep your child away from school for a minimum of 48 hours.  Please telephone school if in doubt.
