Absence and Attendance

The Timings of the School Day


The school day starts at 8.50am. Our gates open at 8.40am and the children come straight into school to settle into the classroom and complete a morning activity until the register is taken at 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 at the children`s entrance to take messages and 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.


School finishes at 3.15pm and the gates will automatically unlock at 3.05pm to allow adults to collect their child from the playground where they will line up with their class. Could we politely ask that parents do not crowd the pathway from the Children's Entrance for health and safety and safeguarding reasons.


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.
