Please see below for schools timings. We have slight differences between the key stages to support parents/carers who have children across the school.


  • Start time 8:55am
  • End time 3:10pm


  • Start time 8:55am
  • End time 3:15pm


The Key Stage 2 day starts at 8:55am. However, doors are open from 8:45am and will close at 9:00am to support parents and carers with multiple drop offs. Any arrivals after 9:00am need to sign in as late at the main school office.

Reception and Key Stage 1 can enter classrooms directly at 8:55am.


KS1 children are collected from classrooms at 3:10pm.
KS2 children can be collected at 3:15pm from the following doors.

Community Room/Breakfast Club Door

Main Hall

  • 3H
  • 4B
  • 4C

Key Stage 2 doors

  • 5S
  • 5W
  • 6B

A parent or responsible adult must collect KS1 and EYFS children from the designated areas. If there is a change of adult the school must be informed. If the school has not been informed then the child will not be allowed to leave the school premises until permission has been sought from the parent.

No one under the age of 16 will be accepted as an appropriate adult to pick up children from EYFS to Year 4.
Year 5 and 6 children may only walk home alone once written permission from a parent/carer is given to the class teacher. We ask all parents to please wait patiently while staff release children through our procedures, in turn.

Children of whatever age who are required to leave the school premises during the day, i.e. medical appointments, must be collected and signed out by a parent or responsible adult, via the main office.
