Key Stage 1 and 2

 

Classrooms open from 8:50am. Children in the ground floor classrooms are greeted by their teachers and come straight in to an early morning task which is waiting for them. Children whose classes are on the first floor are met on the playground by their teacher; they are expected to line up at 8.50am and teachers take their classes up to their classrooms at 8.55am.

 

On arrival in class, an initial task also awaits them.   Registers are taken promptly at 9.00am and any children arriving after this time are marked as late. Late arrivals must enter via the office and sign the late register.

 

At the end of the day at 3.15pm, ground floor classes release students to their parents/carers from their classrooms; first floor teachers escort their classes to the main playground to meet their parents /carers.
