The School Day

Our office opening hours are from 8.15 to 4.00pm Monday to Friday, during term time only.

The health, safety and wellbeing of pupils and staff is our primary consideration. Risk assessments completed to ensure that we can safely welcome everyone back to school in September 2020 can be found here. (they’ll be on the policies page)

Under normal circumstances the school day is from 8:40am to 3:20pm Monday to Thursday; Friday the school day ends at 1:30pm to give teachers shared planning time.  We offer Working Parents Provision until 3.20pm on Friday for parents that are employed.

In line with government guidance we have implemented staggered start and finish times to the school day to alleviate congestion points. Where possible please walk/cycle to school.

If you have children in different classes, your children should all arrive and leave at the time allocated to your eldest child’s year group. It is extremely important that you are on time.

Breakfast Club, After School Club and Working Parent Provision

If you choose for your child to attend any of these clubs, please note that this will mean bubbles are combined although your child will be asked to socially distance from other bubbles.

Breakfast Club in will start at 7:45am; parents and children can only access Breakfast Club at this time. Drop off is at the Greenways top car park where you will be met by a member of staff.

After School Club will also have a single collection time of 5:15pm. Your children will be brought to the Greenways gate to meet you.

Working parents provision on Friday will continue as before, children will all leave at the same time, 3.20pm, and taken to the Edwards Hill entrance to meet parents. If you use external wrap around care, the guidance advises limiting the use of different providers.

Please remember:

  • To let us know before 9am if your child is not going to be at school.
  • To let us know if someone else is collecting your child at the end of the day by lunchtime please.
  • To let us know if any of your contact information changes (including email addresses).

Communication

The school produces a fortnightly newsletter to ensure that parents are kept informed of everything happening in school. If you have given the office an email address then all newsletters and other letters can be sent to you via email. Hard copies will be given out to those parents who do not have access to email or who have requested a paper copy.  Please remember to check these newsletters regularly for information.
