Frequently Asked Questions

What time does my child start school and which entrance do they use? What time does school finish and where do I collect my child?

The details of their start and end times and points are listed in the table below. Please remember that school is open for all pupils from 8:30am, please note, the entrance gates will not be opened before this time. During this time children can access targeted interventions and use programs such as Nessy, TT Rockstars and Spelling Shed to support their learning.

Due to the location of our school, and the continual traffic issues, the end of the day will have to be managed carefully. Therefore, we respectfully ask all parents to depart the immediate area as soon as you have picked up your children. Furthermore, if it is possible to park away from school or use alternative means of getting here, that would also help the situation considerably.
There have been a few incidents of parents parking on the yellow zigzags between our ‘school safety parking signs’. This is highly dangerous and selfish behaviour that is putting our children’s safety at risk. Please don’t be offended when you are asked to move if you are parked on zigzags.

Does my child have to wear uniform?

Children must be in full school uniform  All uniform must be clearly labelled with their name and class, we suggest that you purchase pens/labels to do this so children do not mix uniforms.

What can the children have for lunch?

Lunches will be as usual, children have the option of bringing their own packed lunch or having a school dinner. To assist with admin we ask that children stay on their chosen food choice for the duration of a half term.  Please see the attached information regarding packed lunches.

Packed Lunch Guidance

Payment for lunches should be made via the Parent Pay website.

Does the school expect anything from me as a parent? 

The safety for both children and adults is paramount.  It is important that you have the school app and you have notifications switched on so that you receive the most up to date information quickly.  You must also make sure we have your most up to date contact information if we need to call you in an emergency or if your child is unwell.  We have devised a code of conduct that explains the changes below.  One of the most important expectations is the information listed above about reporting absence.
