The School Day

Mornings

The school gates open at 7:45 am and will be manned by a member of staff. You are welcome to come into the playground and wait with your child until the school doors open; younger children (Years 1, 2, and 3) are not to be left unsupervised by parents or carers until school doors are opened. School doors are opened at 8.00 am. The school gates will be locked at 8.15 am, any child that comes in after 8.15 am will be recorded as LATE on the school register.

DO NOT leave your child at the gates after school gates have been locked; you must press the intercom and come in to sign the late book at the school office. This will be taken as a serious safeguarding concern and will be passed onto the school’s designated safeguarding lead.

Afternoons

School finishes at 3:35 pm. Parents may wait in the lower playground – please avoid standing too close to the main doors; this causes congestion. As you arrive you should mention your child’s name to the responsible person and their name will be called out using the school tannoy system. Your child will not be released except to yourself unless you have informed the school before their collection. Your child should be collected no later than 3.50 pm.

Fridays

On Fridays, the school starts as usual (see above) at 8:00 am and finishes at 11.25 am. Please ensure your child is collected promptly and no later than 11.40 am; designated spaces within the school are used for the Friday prayer (Jumu’ah) they need to be made ready for the khutbah and the Jumu’ah prayer immediately after school closes. Your assistance is appreciated in this important matter.
