School Day and Term Dates

Our School Day:

8.50 am – 12.00 noon 
1.00 pm – 3.30 pm

  • Please be on time
  • Try not to have children waiting in the playground too early especially in cold and wet weather. Five minutes before school begins is early enough.
  • The school bell is rung at 8.50 am for all. This is to enable everyone to have ten minutes to come into school and settle gently into their day.
  • Children should not be on site unsupervised until 10 minutes before the start of the school day as staff are not responsible before this time.
  • Parking is very limited and parked cars are a hazard to children crossing the road to school. Wherever possible, families should walk their children to and from school.

Pupil Absence Request

This form should be completed by the parent/carer and returned to the school as far in advance as possible and preferably preferably with sufficient notice before the first intended day of absence.

The DfE regulations for attendance state that leave of absence during term-time should not be granted by schools unless there are ‘exceptional circumstances.’

Parents/carers must obtain the school’s permission before making any arrangements for leave in exceptional circumstances, otherwise the absence will be recorded as unauthorised and may result in a penalty notice being served.
