Children should not arrive at school before 8.40am and should wait in the playground until school commences. All children should assemble in the playground at 8.50am when the bell will ring and the teachers will come into the playground to collect their respective classes and lead them into school. If it is raining the children can come into school to their classrooms where their teacher will be in the classroom to receive them after 8.45 am. A sign will be put in the staffroom window to direct children into school.


It is important that your child is on time for school. Late arrival in the classroom can be upsetting for the child and can disrupt the education of other children in the class.


Children are dismissed into the playground from their classrooms at 3.30 pm. Parents/ adults should be there to meet the children at 3.30 pm, if you are going to be delayed you should ring the school office so a message can be sent to your child and their class teacher that you are on your way.
