The School Day

Before School

In the interest of safety, children are not permitted to ride bikes or scooters within the school grounds. Pupils are expected to be on the playground by 8:45am but not before 8:30am. Parents and carers should escort their children to the appropriate playground and wait with them until the classes are collected.

We encourage the children to begin lining up quietly before the bell. Parents are encouraged to say goodbye to their children in the playground before they are collected by a member of staff.

KS1/EYFS parents are actively encouraged to leave their children in the line as soon as the bell goes, to ensure a calm start to their child’s day without any disruption.

All classes are collected from the playground by their class teacher. We expect staff to come out at least 5 minutes before the bell to be available to parents.

Teachers accompany their children from the playground into their classrooms to prepare for registration. They should walk into school in a quiet and orderly manner.

Wet mornings

These procedures are only to be used in case of very wet weather or snow.

The decision to use wet morning procedures will be made by the principal.

After that decision has been made, the blue door opposite the main gate will be opened to allow children to access the hall. The door will not be opened before 8:40am.

Reception class children will make their way straight to their classrooms, during the Autumn Term but will go to the hall in the Spring and Summer Terms.

Nursery children will be let in through the Nursery doors in the Quad. Parents will be encouraged to leave their children at the outside door and not enter the building.

Prefects should support younger children to find their classes.

A member of the SLT will guard the door and direct children to the hall.

On wet mornings, class teachers and TA’s need to be in the hall by 8:45am.

All class teachers will collect their children from the hall promptly at 8:50am.


Attendance registers are taken electronically each morning and afternoon and are closed 10 minutes after the session starts.

Any child arriving at the school after 8:45am (once the bell has gone) should go via the main office, where they will be registered as a late arrival.

You will also need to register children arriving late between 8:47 am and 9:00 am electronically.
