At the beginning of the school day, doors are open @ 8.45 a.m., and children can enter school from 8.45 a.m. to 8.55 a.m.

Children should not be left on the playground before this time as there is no available supervision. Teachers will be in the classrooms at 8:45 to welcome pupils in.  Children are encouraged to say goodbye to parents at the classroom door and, once in class,  to pass on any letters or monies to the teacher, to choose a new book and to put away their own book bag and lunch box. They may also self register using photographs or names. This is part of their growing responsibility for their own belongings and independence.

Registers are formally taken at 8.55.  After this time pupils will be marked as late arrivals, door will be shut and children will need to enter via the main school doors.  At the end of the day, teachers dismiss the children to parents at 3.15 p.m. into their own playground.  Older brothers and sisters can move through school to another playground if this is more suitable for parents.  Older pupils often meet parents at the school gates, beyond the eyes of staff, as parents encourage their independence.  All children are instructed to come back into school if they are not collected as arranged. We would request that parents reinforce this from the beginning of their child's schooling so that together we are looking after the safety of all children.

If parents are going to be late, or someone different is to collect a child, please would parents notify the classteacher or the office. Without this permission the children will have to wait with their teacher whilst we phone parents to identify who the unknown adult is, even if children know them, as we also need to be comfortable that it is the parents choice for their child to go with the adult.
