Our School Day

From September 2017 the school is organised into 12 classes, three classes in each Year.  All classes are of mixed ability and teaching assistants work across year groups with individuals and small groups alongside the class teacher.


Children work as a class, as an ability group, or individually according to the subject and type of activity. It is our aim to encourage every child to reach their full potential.


Any child who has not been collected will be asked to wait in the school reception until they are met.  We expect that this situation will only arise in an emergency; please let us know if you are unable to meet your child at 3.15pm for any reason.  If anyone other than a parent or regular carer is meeting your child please inform the School.



We expect pupils to arrive at school in good time for the morning and afternoon sessions.  If you arrive after registration, please report to the school office to be registered as late.


Collection during the school day

If for any reason you need to collect your child during the teaching sessions, please come to the main reception. The office staff will collect your child from their class and you are required to sign them out.  So that this works well for everyone, please provide us with a note, in advance, that gives the time and reason you will be collecting your child.
