Collection at the End of the School Day


Teachers release the children to their parents/carers at the classroom door at 3.15pm. Please ensure that the office is informed if another friend or relative is given the responsibility of collection.

While we would prefer all children to be collected at the end of the school day, we can give allowances to Year 5 & 6 children to make their own way home providing we have written consent from parents/carers.

Parents/carers are kindly asked to be punctual when collecting children as staff are very busy with after school clubs and meetings after school hours each day.


Gate Times

Gates will be electronically or manually opened at 8.30am and will lock at 8:45am.  The gates will reopen at 3.10pm and closed again at 4.30pm

For your child’s security the gate situated at the Millmead Road is locked. Access to the school during the school day is through the gate situated in Tenterden Way.


Late Arrival

Registration closes and lessons begin at 8.50am. It is very important that children arrive at school in time for the start of the teaching session.


If your child is going to be late for any reason please contact the school office so that teachers know when to expect your child and arrangements for lunch can be made. Late arrivals are recorded and regularly checked by the Education Welfare Officer who looks for patterns of lateness.




Nursery times are different from those in the main school. At the moment Nursery is only open for morning sessions. Please contact the school office if you are interested in a place.


The morning session

8.45 - 11.45am
