In the morning children should line up on the pedestrian path until the bell rings shortly after 8.30am when Miss Varricchione opens the gates. Nursery and Reception parents can enter the playground where they are greeted by teachers. Year 1 to Year 4 Children say farewell to their parents at the gate and walk into their class from the main playground door. All children should be in their classrooms by 8.40am to begin the school day.


Parents are encouraged to bring their child into the playground area during the early days in the Nursery/Reception. However, children should be given the opportunity to come in independently as they develop the confidence to do so. Reception children are encouraged to come in on their own after Christmas if they feel happy and confident to do so.
