Parents/carers are asked to ensure that children arrive by 8.55 am each morning.  However, no responsibility can be taken for children who arrive on the school site before 8.40am, unless they are attending an early morning study club. 


Our compulsory opening hours therefore total 32.5 hours per week.


We offer after school care until 6pm with Twilight Hours.  To find out more information follow the link:

Children arriving in school late must call in to the school office so that they can be marked present.  If children leave early for medical appointments etc., they must be signed out of school at the office.
