In the morning children should wait in the playground until the bell rings shortly after 8.30am for Nursery children and 8.35am for the rest of school signalling the children to join their class line. All children should be in their classrooms by 8.40am to begin the school day.

Parents are encouraged to bring their child into school during the early days in Nursery. However, children should be given the opportunity to come in independently as they develop the confidence to do so.


Please note that the above timings reflect the school day pre-COVID 19. Due to guidance, we are currently operating alternative start and end of the days times for Key Stage bubbles. Please see page 13 of our Reopening Information for Parents March 2021
