The School Day


Arriving at school

School starts at 8.45am and registration is open until 9.15am. Pupils will receive a mark of absence if they do not attend school before 9am. Pupils attending after 9.00am will receive a mark to show that they were on site, but this will count as a late mark. Pupils will be greeted by a member of staff at the appropriate door. Pupils in Reception, KS1 and lower KS2 (Year 3 and 4) will enter the building via their classroom door. Year 5 and 6 pupils will enter the building through the KS2 entrance. 


Home Time

The school day finishes at 3.15pm. Reception, KS1 and lower KS2 pupils will be collected from their classroom doors. Year 5 and 6 will be collected from the playground.

When waiting to collect your child, please be patient to safeguard and protect children so that they leave the site with an appropriate adult. If you are collecting a child for the first time and staff do not recognise you, you will be asked for an agreed password. 

Should you be running late for any reason, please telephone the school office on  0161 770 7240 to let the school know so that children can be looked after.  If you are persistently late when collecting your child, you may be charged via your school spider account. We do not allow smoking or dogs in the school playground.

This school is in line with current government legislation and children are in school for 32.5 hours a week which is 6.5 hours a day.
