The School Day

Children should arrive in school no more than twenty minutes before the start of school in the mornings – from 8.30am onwards in juniors and 8.40am in infants. Please note, staff are on duty in each department around 10 minutes prior to the bell going each morning. Thus children will be supervised from 8.40am in the junior department and from 8.50am in the infant department. If your child goes home for lunch, they should return ten minutes before school in the afternoon. No child is to leave the school premises during school hours without being collected by a parent or carer from the administration office.

Children should bring a healthy packed lunch each day with a still drink. The children are supervised and not expected to the leave school premises, unless they are going home for lunch - which has been pre-arranged with the childs parents/carers. Education Services cannot be held responsible for any child who breaks this rule and leaves without appropriate permission. Children who persistently misbehave at lunchtime will not be allowed to stay at school for lunch. Parents will be informed before this action is taken.
