Primary School

School Day

For those children not attending before school clubs or Breakfast Club, the school opens at 8.45am.  Children accompanied by a parent/carer are welcome to wait in the playground from 8.30am but should not go onto the back playground.  All children are expected to be in the classroom promptly by 8.55am.

The gate to Year R and gate to Years 1-4 open at 8.45am and close again at 8.55am.  The front entrance is open at 8.45am for children in Years 5 and 6 and any parents/carers who need to go to the office.  Any children arriving after the gate has closed must come in through the front entrance and go straight to their classroom.  If the register has already been called in the classroom they will need to register with the office and will be marked late. If a child arrives after 9am, they will need to be accompanied by a parent who will be required to sign the late arrivals book.

When children arrive in class they will be asked to select their menu choices for the day, vegetarian, non-vegetarian or packed lunch. 

Break time is usually between 10.30am and 11am and the Infants and Juniors have separate playtimes.  Lunches are served between midday and 1pm and the children go into the lunch hall in their year groups, staggered over the hour.  The rest of the time will be spent outside (weather permitting).

For those children not attending After School Club or taking part in any of the extracurricular activities, the school day ends at 3.15pm.
