School Times

Start of the school day

For children in Year groups 1 to 6 we will go back to our ‘soft start’ system however we will now be opening 4 entrance gates at 8.40 am. The gate will then close at 9am. Parents will not be permitted on site and must not stand at the gate waiting for their child to enter the building. This allows a 20-minute window for you to drop your child off to school and will avoid parents gathering at the gate. A member of staff will be outside the gates in the morning to help form a more orderly line. Reminders will be given about masks, however please note, we cannot enforce this on parents. Please see the table below for information about where to drop your child off in the morning:

Year Group Start Time Drop off point
Year 1, 2, 4 8.40 - 9.00 AM 2 main gates on Fuchsia Street will be open for entry.
Year 3, 5, 6 8.40 - 9.00 AM Main gate on Bostall Lane Rosewood entrance gate.

End of the school day

When collecting your child at the end of the school day, we will use a one-way system to reduce crowding. You will enter the playground from your designated gate (see table below). Your child will be sent over to you and then you will leave the premises from an adjacent gate. This means there will be no cross-over of parents entering and leaving the site. Please note you must leave the premises immediately after receiving your child and there is to be no gathering on site. If you need to collect a child from another year group you must leave the premises and wait for the allocated time.

The school offices open at 7:30am.  Telephones will be answered between the hours of 8:00am and 4:00pm, Monday to Friday.

For children in Key Stage 1 & 2, there is a 'soft start' in operation for all children. Children are expected to walk straight into their classrooms in a quite and orderly manner.  Once in class, children will complete an early morning task until 9.00 am when the registration process begins.

For children in Year 5 and Year 6 the school gives the option to walk home on their own. If you wish for your child to go home alone please inform the school office in writing.  Children who have been given permission to walk home alone are expected to uphold our school values and standards. If there are concerns that the safety of the child or the integrity of the school is compromised then we will insist on the child being collected.
