The School Day


Your child is expected to attend school punctually and regularly. If your child is unable to attend school through illness, or for another reason, it is essential that school is contacted on the first day of absence or that a note of explanation is brought to school on the day he/she returns.

Start of School

For health and safety reasons we do not encourage children on the premises before 8.40am. A great deal of importance is placed on good time-keeping in school and we respectfully ask parents to ensure that their child arrives at school on time.

End of School

Younger children are not allowed out of their class until they are collected by a parent or carer. Only older siblings who are 16 or over can collect pupils from the academy If parents/carers are unavoidably delayed and are unable to collect their child at the correct time the teachers will ask the child to remain in the classroom for approximately 10 minutes and then the teacher will bring the child to wait by the entrance to school. We encourage parents to contact the academy if they are going to be late to avoid children getting worried or upset.

Children in year 6 are allowed to walk home alone if the academy has received written consent from a parent or carer.
