The gates will lock promptly at 8:45am, as the first lesson will have begun.

At this point, if you are late arriving, you will need to bring your child through the main entrance doors, where you will be greeted by the Executive Headteacher or Deputy Headteacher, who will discuss the reasons for you lateness with you. 


Arrival at or after 8:55am will be LATE and children will receive an 'L' in the register.

End of the school day:

Both pedestrian gates will be unlocked at 3:10pm and parents can make their way on to the playgrounds where children will be released at 3:15pm and matched up with awaiting adults. Butterflies will be finishing at 3:10pm. Parents will be able to move freely between playgrounds and gates.


As always, Year 5 and 6 children will be allowed to walk home alone, as long as we have had this confirmed by parents.
