Our school day

The main gates are opened at 8:35am to allow children to come in to the school playground from this time. All children are allowed to walk through the playground gate unaccompanied. Children are expected to be in school by 8:55am when the class registers will be taken. All late arriving children must be signed in to the main school office by an adult.

End of the School Day

At the end of the school day, our school gates open at 3pm. Children are dismissed into the care of their parents by a member of staff out in the playground.  All parents are expected to complete a form, annually, which gives details of which adults have permission to collect their children. Children in Years 5 and 6 are allowed to walk home unaccompanied; providing the relevant forms have been completed by their parents.  If parents need to notify school of any changes to collection arrangements in an emergency, they should telephone the school office, preferably before 2:30pm.


Unauthorised cars are not allowed onto school grounds at any time.  Parents may park in the marked parking bays in neighbouring streets.

We have been advised by the council that parking in Cotswold Close is for residents only.
