The School Day

Children and families are asked to arrive no later than 8.50am


Children arriving via the school bus will be escorted by a member of staff from the bus to the playground (information/procedures relating to the bus are available upon request from the school office.)


Staff are available from 8.40am for brief discussions regarding daily changes but parents/carers are asked to book an appointment if they wish to discuss their child in greater detail. We have a 'safe open door' policy where staff are very happy to hold parent/carer meetings as the need arises, not just termly at Parents/Carers' Evenings.
