Children start arriving through the car park gates from 8:45 am. The car park gates will not open before this time. There are senior members of staff and the pastoral team available in the playground from 8.45 am.  We operate a one way system around our buildings and therefore all parents/carers are asked to enter via the car park gates and exit via the pedestrian gates. Only one adult per family should enter the site. The school bell goes at 9.00 am, so all children should be in class ready to learn by 9.00 am. The school gates are locked at 9.00 am.

During morning playtime children in Nursery and Reception are provided with milk and fruit, KS1 children are provided with water and fruit. KS2 children should bring their own healthy snack to eat at break time.

During the afternoon session the KS1 children have ‘Structured Play’.
