Opening and closing times

We would remind everyone of school opening and closing times:-
School starts at 9.10 a.m.
School finishes at 1.50 p.m. for infants and 2.50 p.m. for first to sixth classes.

We have been advised by our insurance company that supervision by school personnel is required 10 minutes before official opening time i.e. 9.10p.m. so doors will open at 9.00a.m.
We would ask you not to drop children off before that time as we are not insured for them to be on the premises.

We would ask parents to pick up their children promptly at 1.50p.m. or 2.50p.m.  It can be distressing for young children in […]

It is very important that children attend school on a regular basis as they can miss out on important learning opportunities. If your child is absent from school, we would ask you to send a note […]
