Start of the Day
We ask that you do not arrive in school before 8.50am.
The day starts promptly at 9am by the bell being rung in the playground. When the bell has been rung the children should line up in their class lines, where their teacher will collect them and take them to their classroom. Children are asked to carry their own bags (book bags, packed lunches, PE kit bags) into their classrooms.
All of our children are issued with a blue book bag, which they should bring in with them daily. This bag is a well used form of communication between the school and the home, so please check it regularly for school updates and notices. Also, in the bag you will find a ‘reading/spelling’ book, which acts as a communication between your child and their teacher; and ‘sharing’ books whilst in Water class.
Please do not allow your child to be late. It is important that every child is ready for lessons on time. Lateness will be marked in the register. We shall, of course, understand when circumstances conspire to make you late; we have all suffered with car trouble! On occasions when children are late they should enter the school via the Office.
Pedestrian Access and Car Parking
There is pedestrian access to school via the small gate opposite the car park. This gate is locked shortly after 9am for security reasons and is unlocked before the end of the school day.
To help reduce the number of cars parking in the road and so that children are able to walk even a short distance to school, parents are also encouraged to park in the village hall car park and walk with their child to the school.
Cycle racks are available for children to use and are located behind Fire Class.
Please keep to the 20 mph limit – we need to keep our children safe
End of the Day
Our school day ends at 3.30pm. Parents or other persons collecting children are asked to arrive as near to then as possible. Parents are asked to wait on the playground area for all children in Air, Fire and Earth classes. If your child is in Water class, please wait outside their classroom.
Children must not leave the school playground without an appropriate adult.
