Children should aim to arrive at school between 8.45 and 8.55am. They should go through the appropriate gate and wait outside their classroom door until they are let in by their teacher. Please ensure that your child does not arrive before 8.45am unless agreement for arriving earlier has been arranged with your child's class teacher. If children arrive after 8.55am they should enter school via the main entrance and register at the school office.
Children must use the pedestrian walkways. No child should go onto the driveway and car parking areas. We cannot guarantee the safety of, or accept responsibility for, any child using the latter. It is a very busy main entrance.
We have a 15 minute break mid-morning, at 10.40am and are supervised by three members of teaching staff. Children go outside even if the weather is wet, there please send your child to school with appropriate clothing. In addition, on especially hot days, it is advisable to send your child to school with a hat and apply suntan cream at home. Full details of our uniform requirements can be found on the school uniform page.
Lunch times are split into two sittings with children on the second sitting going out to play whilst children on first sitting eat their lunch. Lunch times are supervised by lunchtime supervisors and Sports Coaches.
Unauthorised vehicles do not have the use of the school car park, particularly for “picking up” and “dropping off” children at the start and the end of the school day. We frequently experience problems with the congested area along St. Margaret Avenue at school start and finish and at school functions. There are numerous incidents of the bus being stuck or held up, minor bumps and thoughtless parking across the driveways of our neighbours. The Police have warned and taken action with offenders and we wish to have a friendly relationship with our neighbours. Please park thoughtfully to support the school and neighbourhood in this matter.
