Opening Times

Update- March 2021

We have made some temporary changes to the timings of the school day to allow for social distancing and for children to stay in their bubbles. 


Pupils can arrive at any time between 8.30am and 8.50am and will go straight into lessons.

Arrival between 8.50am and 9.00am will result in a late mark. (Unless your child has 1:1 support in school).

At 9.00am the gates will close and late children should come to the main entrance on Manford Way.


Pick-up is in our A (3.00pm) B (3.10pm) and C (3.20pm) family groups, as it was in December.


On Wednesdays, pick up will be after each year group has finished lunch so that they can complete their afternoon lessons at home on Google Classrooms.

The Wednesday pick-ups are at the earlier family group times: A (1.00pm)  B (1.10pm) and C (1.20pm).  

The school day starts promptly at 9am.

The day ends for most children at 3.15pm.


The school office is open from 8am until 4.30pm Monday to Friday. Outside of these times please send an email and the Office Manager will respond to you -


We run a number of after school clubs for children and provide breakfast and after school childcare at a cost. In July 2019 we started the process of reviewing our 'wrap around' childcare offer with a survey to parents. Any changes we make as a result of this consultation will be planned and implemented as soon as practicable.

Currently the breakfast club runs from 7.45am and the after school club closes at 5pm.

Further information and costs can be requested from the school office.
