School Day

  • 9.00 am – 3.15 p.m.
  • Punctuality is very important to give the day the best possible start.


At the Start of the Day

Before the start of the school day parents and children should enter the site through the Enford Street playground entrance and wait in the playground.

The playground gate is opened at 8.45. Children arriving at this time must remain in the care and supervision of the adult who brought them.

Children should normally arrive on site at 8.50am so that lessons can start promptly at 9 o’clock. From this time a classroom assistant is on duty in the playground.

Young children must remain in the care of the adult who brought them until 9 o’clock, when they are passed into the care of the class teacher. The parents of older children (Year 5 and 6 only) may choose to leave them from the time the playground is supervised (8:50 am).

Children are not allowed to play football or ride on scooters before or after school as it is a hazard for families waiting in the playground.

The playground gate is locked at 9.10 for safety reasons.

The school runs a breakfast club for pupils from 8 o’clock every morning. Pupils need to be registered and a small charge is made.

At the End of the Day

The playground gate is locked at 3.25. Nobody is allowed to remain in the playground after 3.25pm without a legitimate reason (eg. parents waiting to see teachers, children waiting for the start of after-school clubs). No children are allowed to wait in the playground without being supervised.
