We are continuing to work hard on maintaining good attendance and punctuality. Lessons and learning commence immediately after registration. It is vital that your child is on time, as valuable learning is lost through being late.
The main door and classroom doors will be open at 8:40am
School commences at 8:45am prompt and all children (unless a pre-school club) should be in by 8:45am at the latest
Registers will be taken at 8:45am - if your child arrives after this time, please enter via the office, so that your child can be marked in the register with a 'L' or if after 9:20 'U' which is unauthorised absence
The gates will be locked at 9:00am to give time for our Reception parents to leave
The school day ends at 3.15 pm for Tigers Class 1 and Leopards, Class 2 and 3:20pm for Lions, Pumas and Jaguars (Juniors, Class 3, 4 & 5), when parents/carers should be in the school yard to collect their children promptly please.
Children from classes 1 & 2 will be handed directly to parents, all other children will leave
via the main entrance or classroom external door and are instructed to return into school if they do not find their
parent/carer, rather than wait by the gate. (Year 3 children will also be handed over to their parents/carers)
Dogs are not permitted on the school yard. If you do bring a dog, please do not tie your dog to
the gate, as some children are not comfortable passing them.
Please can you ensure your child is appropriately supervised after 3.15/20pm to avoid any child getting hurt. Please could you also ensure that your child does not climb on the school walls, fencing, outdoor furniture and gates.
It is great to see children coming to school on their bikes/scooters - we want to continuing to encourage this. Please can we ask that your child walks out of school pushing their bike/scooter to avoid any collisions on the playground. Thank you for your support.
Every school day counts
Every single day a child is absent from school equates to a day of lost learning.
