School Day

Walking to school

All our staff have been back in school for INSET days on safeguarding, behaviour and local history. We are very much looking forward to welcoming children back on Friday 3 rd September.

Starting & Finishing Times

As explained in the communication with parents last summer term, we will continue to stagger the finish times for years 3 & 4 and 5 & 6. You are welcome to bring your child down into the playground in the morning and to meet them there at the end of the day. We would ask you to remain mindful of social distancing. There will be plenty of staff around to remind children where to go.

Year 3 – Doors open 8:30/ Start 8:50am / Finish 3:05pm

Year 4 - Doors open 8:30/ Start 8:50am / Finish 3:05pm

Year 5 - Doors open 8:30/ Start 8:50am / Finish 3:15pm

Year 6 - Doors open 8:30/ Start 8:50am / Finish 3:15pm

Absence Reporting

Please remember to contact the school office if your child is not attending school for any reason using the Studybugs app.

P.E Days.

We would like to continue the current practice of children wearing their PE kit into school on the day they have their PE lessons. This reduces the amount of PE time being wasted and also makes sure everyone has their PE kit for the lesson!

PE days will be as follows: Monday - Year 4, Tuesday - Year 5, Wednesday - Year 3, Thursday - Year 6.


We will continue with children playing with their year group supervised by their teaching assistants. We will also continue with children eating their hot school dinner or packed lunch in their classrooms supervised by their own teaching assistants.
