The main gate opens at 8.40 am each morning and the field gate a little earlier. No one should be on site before this time.

Children in Key Stage 2 can enter the building from 8.45 am. 

The gate to the infant playground opens just before 8 am so that children and parents can access the hall for breakfast club. Please make sure that children in Reception and Key Stage 1 are not left unaccompanied in the playground. Pupils in Years 1 and 2 line up in the playground and are brought into school by their class teacher.  Pupils in Reception enter school through their external door.  Please ensure that when children arrive at school late, they are signed in by an adult on the signing in/out screen in the office foyer and on the same screen if they are collected before the end of day.

At the end of the day Key Stage 2 children are brought out to the playground by their class teacher. Class teachers check that all children are collected by their named person. Please let us know if your child in Year 5 or 6 can walk home alone.

Pupils in Reception, Years 1 and 2 leave school via their external doors.

Please make sure you collect your child on time, if there is an emergency it is important to let us know. We also need to know if someone else is collecting your child.

Reporting absences

If your child is unable to attend school for any reason, you must call the school, preferably before 9am. If your child’s absence lasts for more than one day, you still need to call us every day to keep us updated. There is an option to leave a message on our absence line.

Please remember that we do not authorise any term time holiday.


We expect all children to wear our school uniform.


We try very hard to communicate effectively with parents and use notice boards, text messaging, e-mail, Twitter and phone calls. Our website is updated daily and is the most important source of information.

Please make sure that we have up to date contact details.

Breakfast Club and After Care

We run a breakfast club from 7.30 am every day and aftercare until 5.45 pm. Please ask at the school office for more details.
