Children should be in the playground at 8.55a.m, (the gates to the playground open at 8.45 am), where they will be supervised and then met by their class teacher at 9.00 a.m. On wet mornings the school will be open from 8.50a.m. to enable children to wait in the school hall, where they will again be supervised by school staff.
It is very important that children are on time. Children, who are late, have to sign a late book and those, who come in after 9.30am, have to report to the school secretary. Parents are asked to sign the late book on behalf of very young children or to report with the child to the school secretary's office, as appropriate. If lateness persists, parents are likely to be contacted for an explanation, either by the school or by the Educational Welfare Officer, who checks registers regularly.
The school day ends at 3.30pm. Children must be collected from the playground, where they will be with their teachers. It is vital for parents to be on time, as it is very distressing for children not to be collected at the same time as their classmates.

The school is a one form entry, Roman Catholic, Voluntary Aided Primary School with a Nursery. There is a nursery class and seven mixed ability group year classes, which enables the school to cater for 250 children.
Children are accepted into the nursery class from the age of three years, as vacancies arise. There are two half day sessions, from 9.15 - 11.45am and from 1.00 - 3.30pm. There are a proportion of full time places, which are allocated, on the basis of age, to the twenty eldest children. Parents should bring and collect their children promptly. The school cannot be responsible for children before the opening time of each session. Children should be dressed in school uniform and trainers/plimsolls they can manage themselves. Children follow a wide programme of activities planned by the Teacher and Nursery Nurse and receive the widest possible range of learning experiences and opportunities for exploration. There is no automatic entry to the school from the Nursery. A separate application must be made for a place in the school.
