Afternoon Playtime

Class teachers decide if and when afternoon play occurs depending on what learning is taking place.

The school day finishes at 3.15pm

Drop-off and Collection

At the beginning and end of the day parents and carers are encouraged into the school playground. This helps to build up a close and effective partnership which benefits your child, you and the school.

If normal arrangements have to be altered e.g. you are delayed or another person is collecting your child, please let us know as soon as possible. This will avoid any confusion.

Getting to School

To get to and from school, walking is definitely the best option! There are lots of benefits: it’s healthier than travelling by car, it improves the safety of pedestrians and road-users, and it respects nearby residents and parking regulations. Alternatively, we have bike-racks. If you do need to travel by car, please park wisely and consider the safety of all.
