Parent/Carer Information

This section of our website is where you can find out everything you need to know about day to day life at our school, such as term dates, our uniform requirements, school dinners, clubs and activities that the children can take part in, homework and the school curriculum.

School times

School starts at 8:55 and finishes at 3:20. 

Please see the letter below describing the drop off and collection procedures. 

Late arrivals

Please remember that the school day starts at 8.55am: children arriving at school after 9.25am are given an 'unauthorised absence' mark in the register.  The Education Welfare Officer monitors children who are consistently late, so please ensure that your child arrives at school on time.

Absence due to illness

If your child is ill and unable to attend school, please remember to telephone the office so that their teacher can be informed.

Medical appointments

We recognise that it can be difficult to arrange hospital and doctors' appointments outside school hours, so medical appointments during the school day are permissible.  However, please remember to advise the school about any appointments your child has and do try to schedule appointments outside of school time wherever possible to avoid disruption for your child.
