Children are registered. Any child arriving after 8.55 am is marked LATE.

Children may bring a piece of fruit to eat. Drinking water is available from fountains in the playgrounds.

Children in different year groups leave the building by different exits.  Parents/carers should wait for their children outside the appropriate door. Children are not allowed to play ball games after school, nor go on the climbing frames.

In the past parent / carers have used the opportunity of lining up in the playground to pass on messages or chat to the class teacher about an important matter. If you need to speak to your child’s class teacher you may do so after school. If the matter is very urgent then either please call in at the school office to leave a message or make an appointment.
