Our School Day

Our school day starts at 8:55, with children arriving between 8:45 and 8:55. Children should use the side gates where a member of staff will be waiting to greet them. Reception children should use the Reception Class entrance where Mrs Gemmell will welcome you. If your child arrives later than 9:00, they should report to the school office to be signed in.

Our school day ends at 3:10 for Reception and Key Stage 1 children and 3:15 for Key Stage 2 children. Gates will be opened at 3:00 for you to wait on the playground for us to handover your children. Reception parents can collect from the Reception Class playground.

Assemblies

We gather as a school every day for an assembly where we take time to reflect, sing and consider our Value of the Month. For some assemblies, we invite parents and carers to join us; please see below.

Celebration Assembly

Each Friday we have a Celebration Assembly at 9:00 which parents and carers are very welcome to join us for. It is always a fantatasic opportunity to celebrate our children's achievements in and out of school and a very happy event!

Class Assemblies

Every class is responsible for leading some of the assemblies throughout the year. We will let you know when it's the turn of your child's class so that you can join us if you are able.
