Classes and the school day
Our school day starts with the main school gates being opened at 8.30am by school staff. Classroom doors are opened at 8.30am by the class teacher. All children are expected to arrive in class by 8.40am when the school day begins. At this point the classroom doors will close, the registers will be taken, and the main school gates will be locked. If you arrive after this time, please report to the school office to sign your child in.
At the end of the day the main gates will be unlocked at 2.55pm. Teaching staff will open classroom doors and dismiss children at 3.00pm.
