Our School Day











Children are encouraged to be in school no more than 10 minutes before the start of the school day. The school is not responsible for children who arrive before this time.


The doors to school are open for children to arrive from 8.40am.


Children attend school for 190 days each year and there are 5 additional teacher training days. Punctual attendance ensures that children gain the most from their time in school.
