The School Day

The details below are our 'normal' school day hours.  As a result of the COVID-19 crisis, we have revised times.  These can be seen via the news section on the home page


Starting and Finishing times

08:40 to 15:30 (Monday to Thursday)
08:40 to 13:15 (Friday)

Children enjoying Friday afternoon clubs will stay until 15:30 and have already been advised of the clubs they will be attending.


FS - 11.45 to 12.45
KS1 - 12.00 to 13.00
KS2 - 12.00 to 13.00 

Drop-off and collection

At the beginning and end of the school day, parents are encouraged into the playground. This helps to build up a close relationship between home and school – we want to have good links with all parents.  If normal arrangements have to be altered (e.g. you are delayed or another person is collecting your child) please let us know by ringing the school office. 

In the morning the Byron Road, Chaucer Road and Milton Road gates will be unlocked at 08:30 to allow children and parents to enter the site before the doors open at 08:40.  At 08:45 the gates will be closed and locked and entrance thereafter is only possible via the Byron Road gate.

At the end of the school day, all three gates will be unlocked and opened at 15:20, allowed parents and carers unto site before the end of the school day at 15:30.
