Parents are able to drop their children off from 8.30 am at the entrance closest to their child’s classroom. Children then make their way to their classroom and prepare for the start of the day. Parents of children in Reception are able to take them into their classrooms. The children are supervised in their classrooms by a member of staff and are expected to undertake a quiet activity.
The start of the day is 8.40 am and children are not considered late until after that time. There is no requirement to send your child into school until 8.40 am, but they are able to arrive between 8.30 and 8.40 am. Please note that there will not be a member of staff on duty in the playground before or after school.
All external doors will be closed at 8.45 am, which will be signalled by the siren. From this time onwards children must report to reception to sign in. Children who sign in at reception from 8.45am will receive a late mark in the register.
Registers close at 9.00am. If your child arrives after this time they will receive a mark that shows them to be on site, but this will not count as a present mark and it will mean they have an unauthorised absence.
