School times 

 Reception Glas start/finish times - 8.35am - 3:00 pm 

Reception Coch start/finish times - 8.35am-3:00 pm


The school day starts promptly, we open the gate at 8.35am as the children enter the class they begin their handwriting, number and key word practice. We will be on the gate until 8.45am, after this time you need to take your child to the main reception desk where Mrs. Jones will let them in and they will be marked as late. At the end of the day please collect your child at the appropriate time, where they will be dismissed one at a time.


Please bring/collect your child to the correct entrance depending on their class:

Both classes will enter/exit on middle school yard.


(Due to health & safety reasons, no parents are allowed beyond the gates: please wait on the school yard. Please refrain from standing on the Reception path to avoid blocking the entrance/exit and so that Reception staff can spot parents easily.)

Book Bags

Book bags - are to be returned every Monday and will be sent back out during the same week when you child has read a new book in class which is then to be taken home and read. Please write a comment in your child's reading record each time they read.

Snack Money

Snack money is collected every Monday and is £1 for the week. Please give your money to the class teacher when dropping off your child. 


If you are running late, you will need to drop you child off at the school office in the main building and sign your child in. If your child is absent, please contact the school as soon as possible to explain the reasons for absence.


We will provide a healthy snack for your child each day, we kindly ask for a donation of £1 per week to cover the cost of this. We will collect money at the start of each week.


If your child is having a school dinner provided by school, you need to order this on parentpay, you can order for the whole week and for three weeks at a time. If your child is not having a school dinner they will need their own packed lunch and drink. Please try to avoid 'over filling' your child's lunch box, don't forget their stomach is only the size of their own fist! Children often miss their playtime because parents have packed too much food for them to get through at lunch time. We want your child to have enough time to enjoy their lunch time play. 

No Toys

Some children like to bring in their own toys, but unfortunately these often get lost, broken or taken. Please ensure your child doesn't bring any home toys/items to school to avoid loss or damage.
