Term Dates/School Day

Home / Parents & Pupils / Term Dates/School Day






Starting on Monday 30th September 2019 the school doors will close at 8.45am in the morning.
This is when lessons begin so children should already be in class.
We have a very high volume of children disturbing the first lesson due to their late arrival. With this in mind we must encourage parents to have their children in school before that time.
Doors will open at 8.35am as usual.
Anyone arriving after 8.45am will have to go through the main school reception area so we can contact parents of those regularly late to school.
Thank you for your cooperation and your support in putting learning first.


Doors open at 8:35am and close at 8.45am

School starts/Registration is at 8:45am

Lessons start promptly at 9.00am with the morning break at 10.30am – 10.45am (main lessons are 45 mins each)

The school also offers a breakfast club facility. This opens at 8am. Children are offered a variety of cereals, milk, fresh orange or apple juice, toast/crumpets or muffins with various toppings (subject to availability).

There are a number of activities for the children. There are always two members of staff on duty. The present cost is £3.20 per child per day, which must be paid either on the day or prior to attendance. Pre booking is not required, children merely present themselves at the Extended School Room.

Children attend the Nursery either in the morning of the afternoon:

Morning sessions: 8.45am-11.45am

Afternoon sessions: 12.05pm-3.05pm


There are 190 statutory school days in one year. That means there are 175 days (weekends & school holidays) available to use for holidays!

There is no entitlement to time off in school time to go on holiday.

Headteachers cannot authorise any leave in term time unless there are exceptional circumstances. ALL holidays will be unauthorised.

Any period taken without agreement of the school, or in excess of that agreed, will be classed as unauthorised and may attract a Penalty Notice.

A 2 week holiday in school time means your child has approximately 50 hours of missed work to catch up on! Penalty Notices are now being issued.

Some parents choose to book holidays during term time because it is more convenient for them or perhaps better value than at other times.

We understand that everybody deserves a holiday but NOT at the expense of your child’s education.

Click Holidays-in-Term-time-Flyer for more information and the form that you can use to request permission. However it’s important to note that such permission is very limited and consequently very rarely granted.
