School Day

The compulsory school day is from 8.45-3.15pm. This is a total of 32.5 hours per week.

In addition to this we offer a 10 minute window for early drop off and to support a calm and well-behaved entry to school. This earlier start will enable children to meet with friends, get organised, put their belongings away and start their early morning activities, ready for the school day. 

8.35am The School day begins, and the gates are opened - Monday to Friday.

We ask that parents wait on the school front playground for their child to be dismissed at the end of their school day. Children not collected on time will be taken to the school office to be collected from there. We ask that parents, wherever possible, inform the school if they expect their child will not be collected on time.
