Our Morning Routine


8.40 am – Gates open, children leave lunchbox on year group trolley (if applicable), place bags and coats on pegs or in lockers (year group specific) and enter class.
8.45 am – Registration begins. Registers will be sent to the office at 9.00 am
9.00 am – Pupils walk to the school hall for daily worship.


The School office is staffed from 8.30 a.m. until 4.00 p.m. Once children have entered the classroom, they will be expected to be ready for learning as early morning tasks are set or time is spent with pastoral care. Members of the leadership team or the Family Liaison Officer supervise entry to the school and are available to answer general queries. It may also be possible to talk to class teachers at this time, although making a formal appointment is recommended.


Please collect your children promptly at the end of the day. If you deliver or collect your child by car, please use the village car park on School Lane if possible. Parents are asked to park in a considerate manner as careless parking causes considerable inconvenience to our neighbours.
