It is extremely important that children arrive at school promptly for the start of their day. Please be on time for 8.45am. 

Children who are late will miss teaching input which often cannot be repeated and can have an impact on their whole day.

Children who arrive after the start of the school day will be marked late in the attendance register. The number of late sessions is recorded on the end of year report.


The total time that KS1 and KS2 children are in school in a typical week is 32.5 hours.
