School Day

School Day

Our school day commences at 9am and finishes at 3:15pm. Children will be collected from the drive gate on Hindmarch Drive and taken along to our classroom door by a member of staff.

At 3:10pm the drive gates will be opened and parents should wait outside our classroom door for children to be dismissed.  When collecting your child please stand well back to allow the children to pass by.

We still have the passwords from last year so please ensure that whoever picks your child up knows the password, thank you!

Your child is entitled to a free piece of fruit every day.  If your child wishes to drink milk please pay for this via the parentpay app.  Children should also bring a water bottle to school every day, filled with water only please.



Reading is a hugely important part of our curriculum.  As well as reading in school, children will be given a home reader, reading record and a bookmark.

Reading bookmark 2

As part of our new reading initiative this year, children who have read to an adult 3 times in a week will receive a sticker or stamp on their own personal reading bookmark. Once they fill their bookmark they will receive a special reward!

We will have Commando Joe team building sessions on a Tuesday morning.
