School Day and Term Dates

We look forward to seeing all the children return to school on Tuesday 4th January (Covid permitting).

These are the Term dates for the whole of the year; 2021-22.

Drop Off and Collection

On the first two days (2nd and 3rd September), the school gates will open at 8.30am and close at 8.50am. All year groups are currently asked to enter via the main gate.

Children can arrive between 8.00am- 8.45am for a free breakfast (see below), and by 8.45am for normal entry. Any child arriving after 8.50am will be late.

Children can be dropped at the gate in both instances and welcomed by our staff.

The school day finishes at 3.15pm for all year groups. Parents will be asked to line up along Walton Rd as before. The gate will open at 3.10pm and parents will then be invited to wait in a sensibly spaced area behind the cones; collecting their eldest children first. All families will then leave via gate 2 in a one-way system.

We request that, in order to keep numbers low, only 1 parent/family member collects from the playground, and then vacate as soon as you can. Should you wish to talk to the class teacher, please remain on the playground (standing to one side) and then seek attention of the teacher after the class has been dismissed.

Breakfast Provision

From 6th September we will have a free breakfast club for all children.

Children can be dropped off from 8am without the need to book. Breakfast’s will be served in each child’s classroom.
