Arrival at school

Our playground gates open at 8:50 am each school morning. Parents are welcome to wait in the playground with their children until the bell rings at 9 o'clock. Pupils can enter the school from 8:50am to enable a calm start to their day before registration begins at 9am.

 

Daily acts of Collective Worship

Each day our school community comes together at 10:30am for our daily collective worship. Our Collective worship is values led, following 'Values for Life' With a monthly values focus. Each Tuesday we have a visit from our local church wardens to share values led stories from the bible as well as stories aligned to the seasons of the church year. 

 

Playtime

We are very fortunate to have a large playing field, tennis court, school garden, galaxy climbing frame, 'Mount Northill' play mound with slide, playground area, outdoor classroom and an early years play area for our youngest class as part of their Continuous Provision.

 

Children play together each morning from 10:45am- 11am and again at Lunch time (12pm-1pm). Teachers also have the discretion of an optional afternoon break for pupils, depending on the need of the class at the time.

 

Home time

The normal school day ends at 3:15pm. Parents are welcomed through the school gate to collect their children at the end of the school day. The children are asked to remain with their teacher until they can go with the person who collects them. If you are unavoidably delayed your child will remain with staff until we can contact you.  Please inform the school if someone different is collecting your children.
