Infant children have a 15-minute morning break, one hour at lunchtime and a 15-minute break in the afternoon. Junior children have a 15-minute morning break and one hour at lunchtime. 


The playground gates will be locked at 9.05am and open again at 3.10pm.


Please ensure your child is NOT in school before 8.45am as they will be unsupervised on the school site.  In the mornings Year 2 will gather in the Infant Playground next to the Year 2 classrooms and Year 1 will line up outside the external door to their classrooms.  Children line up when the whistle is blown, Year 2 pupils will walk around to the classroom with the teacher.  Parents are encouraged to remain in the playground at a distance from the class until the whistle is blown.  The children are responsible for their own belongings i.e. hanging their coats up, sorting out their lunch boxes, reading folders and drinks.  


Children are to be collected promptly at 3.15pm from their respective classrooms.  If another adult is picking up your child, who is not on the consent list, you will need to inform your child's class teacher on the morning via a pink slip. These pink slips can be obtained from the class teacher and the school office.


We ask all parents and children to leave the school site promptly and no later than by 3.30pm.


A note is taken in registers of late arrivals, and in the case of persistent lateness the family concerned will be contacted by the LEA Attendance Officer attached to the school.
