From September, we will trial what we hope will be a more effective way of starting the school day.
Entry on to the playground will be from 8.45am. Children are not supervised before 8.45am therefore for health and safety reasons if your child arrives before 8.45am, they must be accompanied by an adult.
At 8.50am, the first bell will ring and our 4 entry doors will open for children to start coming into school. Staff will supervise each entry until 8.55am when a second bell will ring to signal the start of registration.
On arrival into school, children will be asked to begin their first morning task. It is important that pupils are ready to start the school day on time and are settled. For pupils in years 1- 2 we will encourage them to come into their class independently. Whereas in years 3-6 we expect all pupils to enter class on time and by themselves.
We hope by having a gradual arrival, parents with more than one child will have more flexibility in ensuring their children are happy and in school. Also it will prevent parents from having to wait around on the playground which in turn will help with parking and road congestion.
If parents need to see a member of staff, please either see them before the first bell at 8.50am or come to the office where either I or Mrs Hackett will be available.
On the occasions when it is raining, the main key stage 2 entry door will open at 8.45am to allow for pupils in year 1-6 to come into school. Only pupils in Reception will continue to use their entry door.
