Most of our nursery sessions are organised in the traditional way; each child attends part-time for 15 hours per week, either every morning or every afternoon.
Opening hours are as follows:
AM sessions: 8.45a.m. to 11.45a.m. and PM sessions: 12.45p.m. to 3.45p.m. This year however some 30 hour spaces have been offered. These children stay all day and during lunchtime they will have dedicated lunchtime assistants. For this we charge £3 per day (£15 per week) in keeping with all other settings locally.
Parents wait on the Nursery playground in a queue to deliver their child safely to the practitioners and a member if staff is also on hand to take any messages outside.
Doors are open from 8.35a.m. until 8.50 a.m., then 11.35a.m. until 11.50 a.m., 12.35p.m. until 12.50 p.m. and 3.35p.m. until 3.50 p.m.
School times are 8.55a.m. -12.00a.m. and 1.15p.m. – 3.30p.m.
Entrances are opened at 8.40a.m. and attended by members of the senior leadership team to ensure children enter school safely.
At both Reception ramp and the KS1 entrance staff have a message book to pass information to class staff as soon as the doors close. Staff attend the doors until 8.55a.m. at which time doors and gates are locked for security.
If you arrive after this time, you need to come to the school office via the pedestrian entrance at the front of the school, where you will be asked to sign your child in as late giving a reason for lateness.
At home-time, gates and doors will be opened at 3.25 p.m., (AT PRESENT TO HELP WITH COVID TIMES ARE STAGGERED; Reception 3.15pm, Year 1 when Reception have left around 3.20pm and Year 2 when Year have left at around 3.25-3.30pm). All parents are asked to wait on the Nursery path or Junior path until your child’s year group is called.
All pupils remain under the supervision of their teacher until released into your care. Gates are locked at 3.50p.m. to aid security, once again, latecomers must use the main school entrance at the office.
May we please remind you that the school car park is for staff and official visitors only and not for dropping off or picking up children. In special circumstances arrangements can be made for parents to use the car park but this is after discussion with the headteacher Mrs Naffati.
