The total hours spent on teaching during the normal school week, including Religious Education, but excluding the statutory daily act of worship, registration and breaks (including lunch) is 23 hrs 45 minutes at KS2 and 23 hrs 20 minutes at KS1.

When bringing or sending children to school in the mornings, parents should note that there are no teachers officially present until 8.45 a.m. We ask that children should arrive at school at between 8.45 and 8.55am, so that they are not late. In the case of children who go home for a mid-day meal, responsibility will only be accepted during the lunch hour from 12.40 pm. provided such children are on the school premises.

The end of the school day is 3.15pm and all children must be collected on time. Infant children must be collected by a parent/guardian or designated adult (we must be notified of this adult and introduced to them by the parent/guardian before they take on this role). Any child not collected on time will be placed in the Childcare Club and parents will be charged the full hourly rate. Any child placed in the Childcare Club must be collected in person and signed for.

Parents must ensure children know their collection arrangements before they leave home. Strictly in emergency, contact the office before 12 ‘o’ clock to notify us of any change in arrangements. Due to limited office hours, we cannot guarantee that any changes made after this point will be picked up or passed on.
