PLEASE NOTE: from the beginning of the new school year in September 2017, the school day will finish at 15.20.

All children are expected to be in the playground by 08.35. Registration in classrooms is at 08.50 – registers close at 09.00. Those arriving between 09.00 and 09.30 will be marked late unless the school has received prior notification. Children arriving after 09.30 should report to the school office. Unless the school is or has been notified the absence will be marked as unauthorised for the whole morning session. We regard punctuality as important and arriving late is poor training for the future and not in keeping with the high standards we expect.

Collecting your child: It is our policy to allow Year R parents onto the playground to collect their children to ensure the safety of every child. The children have been instructed to wait to be collected by their parents, carers or person they are expecting to collect them. The school must have prior notice of persons authorised to collect your child. You should make full contingency plans when you are unavoidably detained and therefore late.

No child should remain unaccompanied on school premises after 15.20 unless they are involved in an after school activity. We are only responsible for those officially participating in these activities – it is not acceptable for any other child to be left to e.g. watch a football or netball match even if older siblings are taken part unless they are accompanied by an adult.

Parking: Please do not park in the school car park before or after school. Be aware that zig-zag lines outside school should not be parked on as this obscures the view of other road users and inhibits the smooth flow of traffic in Cob Drive.
