Opening Times

Start Times

Access to our playgrounds for children, parents and carers is provided from 8.40am each morning. Doors to classrooms are open at 8.45am for all children and we encourage all children to be in class as early as possible as learning begins as soon as the doors open. The gates to the playground close promptly at 8.55am and any children arriving after this time will need to access the school via the main entrance.

In line the with information above, morning registration occurs between 8.45am and 8.55am each morning.

Total Hours

Children attending full time, and on time, will therefore be in school for 32.5 hours a week. 

School Closures

School closures due to adverse weather conditions, will be displayed on the School Closure Notification System. Please use this system as your first port of call.


We will, however, endeavour to inform parents in a variety of ways:

• an update on the school website
• as answerphone message on the school number
• a note on the gates


We never take the decision to close lightly and always do what we can to remain open or partially open. Please do not undertake a journey that you consider dangerous to get your children to school.
