In the morning, parents and carers are welcome to come into school with their children. All children and parents come in through the front gate and use the back door. Children should not arrive in school before 8.45am unless special arrangements have been made. The playground will be supervised from 8.45am.


We ask parents to inform the teacher or Headteacher if someone unknown to staff is meeting the child from school. We do not allow children to leave school before the end of the day unless prior arrangements have been made.


Teachers supervise the children at the end of the school day. Parents are asked to collect children from the playground at the back of school where a teacher will wait until they have all been collected. Another member of staff will take children to meet their bus.




Every child will bring home a ‘storytime reading book’ which they are encouraged to share with you at home at least four times a week. The reading diary can be filled in together to provide a good link between home and school. Homework will differ according to the age of the child. Children will be given spellings and times tables or Learn It facts and termly tasks based on their topic work. In Year 6 children will have additional homework as part of their SATs preparation.
