School Day

The Start and End of the Day


We are currently operating staggered start and finish times. We ask that only one parent/carer from each family bring their child/children onto the playground via the gate next to Nic Nacs and follow the one-way system to exit the playground via the Year 5/6 gate.


On arrival, we ask that you proceed round to the clearly marked cone with your child's year group and line up, ensuring social distancing guidelines are adhered to at all times. Please keep your child with you at all times and do not allow them to play on the playground.


At the end of the school day, the children will be returned to you at the same location at their allocated time.
