From little acorns, mighty oaks grow

The School Day

School starts at 8:45 am, the register is completed in each class at 8:55 am. If arriving after 9:00 am children should be taken directly to the office. Parents should supervise their younger children and toddlers at all times before and after school.  

School finishes at 3:15 pm in Acorns building and 3:20 pm in Oaks building and we expect children to be collected at these times.

There are many clubs which run after school across the school year. Clubs usually end at 4:30 pm, but please check the details with the club leader to make sure.

We always arrange for a member of staff to be on the school premises while club activities are taking place, with the exception of clubs who are hiring our hall and are not run by the school. 

The school timetable is as follows:

8:45 - 9:00 am Early morning task and registration. Staff listen to children read individually
