The School Day and Attendance

The School Day

The gates to the playgrounds open at 8.35am each morning and the school day begins at 8.45am. Please ensure your children are supervised on the playground until the start of the school day, especially in KS1.

At 8.45, classes will be called to line up and say our morning prayer together before coming into school.

The school day ends for Early Years and Key Stage 1 at 3.15pm and for Key Stage 2 at 3.20pm.

The total length of a school week is 32.5 hours for Early Years and Key Stage 1 and 32.9 hours for Key Stage 2.


Our school attendance target is 96.4%.

This is a particularly high target and we will need everyone to support us in achieving this.

Note – if your child is ill on a school day, please contact the office by telephone as soon as possible.
