Absence and Attendance

The Timings of the School Day


The school day starts at 8.50am with children lining up in their classes on the playground. Children will be taken by their teachers into school and registered by 8.55am.

Children should not arrive on the school premises until 8.40am. The gates will  automatically unlock at this time to allow access into the playground and from 8.40am staff are available on the playground to take messages and to ensure everyone gets off to a safe start to the day.

There is a mid morning break but children work through the afternoon without a break.

Lunchtime begins for all year groups at 11.35am and afternoon school begins at 12.30pm.


Collective Worship happens at 1.05pm every day.

School finishes at 3.15pm and the gates will automatically unlock at 3.05pm to allow adults to come and wait on the playground by the picket fence area. Please do not crowd the pathway from the Children's Entrance as we need clear sight lines to dismiss the children safely.


The school teaching time is 23.75 hours per week which is above the government recommendation for KS2.


Please read our Attendance and Absence Policy for guidance on our attendance expectations and policies and procedures relating to absence.
