School Times

The pedestrian access gates to site on Station Road and Hanbury Road will be open in the mornings to allow for drop-off to Darby's wraparound. School opening times for children not in our wraparound care are detailed below.

The pedestrian access gates will close at 9.00am. Parents will still be able to leave site by using the high level button at each gate. Access for any late arrivals will be given using the intercom system on the gates.

At the end of the school day, the gates will open at 3.15pm.

EYFS and KS1 (Reception to Year 2): 9.00am - 3.25pm

Children, parents, and carers are welcome on to the main playground from 8.40am. At 8.50am the doors from the playground will open and staff will be on hand to welcome the children into the school to start their day. The exact door to use will depend on the year group your child is in; you will be told which door to use. Doors close promptly at 9.00am for registration and the in-site security gate to the lower school playground will be locked.

All late arrivals should go to the lower school office at the front of the KS1 building and sign in with the reception desk. Please do not try and take children to classroom doors if you are delayed as this can cause confusion with the registration process and may result in your child accidentally being marked as absent.

School finishes at 3.25pm and all children should be collected from their classroom's external door. Teachers will not allow children to leave the classroom unless they can identify an adult who is collecting them. Please notify the class teacher in writing if special arrangements have been made for collection.

Nursery: 8.50am - 11.50am or 12.30pm - 3.30pm

Similarly, children in the morning Nursery session should be delivered to the Nursery gate off the lower school playground. Arrangements for late arrival are the same as for the rest of lower school; please go to the office at the front of the school and sign in.

For collection at the end of the morning Nursery session, the pedestrian access gates will open between 11.45am and 11.55am. Children should then be collected from the Nursery side door, near the KS1 car parking area.

For the afternoon session, the pedestrian access gates will open again between 12.25pm and 12.35pm. Children should be delivered to the Nursery side door, near the KS1 car parking area.

Collection at the end of the afternoon session will again be from the Nursery gate off the lower school playground.

KS2 (Years 3 to 6): 8.50am - 3.30pm

The doors open at 8.40am and children are welcomed into school. The member of staff on duty will close the doors promptly at 8.50am in preparation for registration at 8.55am. All late arrivals should report to the upper school office at the front of the KS2 building to confirm their attendence and select a lunch choice.

School finishes at 3.30pm. All Year 3 and Year 4 children should be met by a responsible adult. In years 5 and 6 children are permitted to leave school independently once they have been granted parent permission in their Home School Organiser.

If you have made alternative collection arrangements, please notify the class teacher through the Home School Organiser.
