Start and End of Day arrangements
The school gates open at 8.30am and the children are brought directly to the classes and handed over to the class teachers. No child should be left at the gate or in the playground.
School begins with registration at 8.45 am
This 15 minutes gives children time to say their goodbyes, hand their reading books or home learning in, hang up their coats and put away their fruit.
Children need to be on the carpet and ready for learning by 8.45am.
It is important that you are punctual as children miss valuable learning time if they are regularly late. It can also trigger a visit from the Education Welfare Officer. If children arrive after the close of register at 9.15am then they are marked in as being absent for the morning session.
If you are going to be late for whatever reason, please call the office and let us know as we can then book your child a school lunch and mark the register accordingly.
If your child is going to be absent from school due to illness please could you let the office know before 9.30am.
A leave of absence is only granted for exceptional circumstances and if an application is made in advance. An application form can be obtained from the school office.
Doctor and dentist appointments during the school day should be avoided.
A copy of the appointment letter or card is required to authorise the leave of absence.
School finishes at 3pm and children are collected promptly from their individual classes.
