School start time

20 October 2022 (by Paul Dixon (p.dixon))

From 1st November 2022, school doors will open 5 minutes earlier at the new time of 8:45am...

After the upcoming October half term holiday, we will start opening the classroom doors/school entrances 5 minutes earlier than we have done previously.

From Tuesday 1st November the classroom doors/school entrances will open at 8:45am.

School gates will also be opened slightly earlier and parents/carers are reminded that the children remain the responsibility of yourselves until the classroom doors/school entrances are open and school staff are visible.

Classroom doors/school entrances will still close at 9.00am and any children arriving after this time needs to report to the main school office where their late arrival is recorded and arrangements made about school meals. A child will be registered with a late mark if they arrive after 9:00am and an unauthorised mark if they arrive after 9:20am.

There is an expectation from the government that by September 2023, all mainstream, state-funded schools will provide a school week of at least 32.5 hours. We will need to extend the finishing time of our day slightly, so further communication will be sent in due course. The school day will continue to finish at 3.00pm until further notice.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
