Our School Day

Our classroom doors open at 8.35am for children to go into class to begin Early Morning Work. In Year 1 and 2 parents/carers may stay with children to hear them read or help with the activities.

School begins at 8.45am and finishes at 3.15pm. We are committed to developing punctuality as an essential life skill. If children arrive after 9:00am they will be marked in the register as unauthorised absence.

Holidays During Term Time

New Government regulations came into force in September 2013. Schools are unable to authorise any holidays taken during term time. If there are ‘exceptional circumstances’ the Governors and Head will agree the number of days leave but a meeting must take place and it must be ‘exceptional circumstances’. Term time holidays will be unauthorised and may include penalty notices of £60 per child (£60 if paid within 21 days and £120 if paid within 28 days).
