The School Day


The school gates open at 8.45am. Children are expected to be in the playground in the morning before the bell rings at 8.55am, but should not arrive before 8.45am unless attending Breakfast club, so that they are not left unattended.

Children who arrive later than 8.55am must be signed in at the Welcome Desk and are given a “Signing In Token” to present to their class teacher.

There is an assembly three times a week at 9.00am, either for the whole school or specific year groups. Parents are invited to attend the Friday morning assemblies when their child’s class is leading the assembly. Please look in the newsletter for details.

I’m aware that a banana may, on first thought, seem an obscure image to sum-up positivity. However, the colour is bright and optimistic and you can place the banana in front of ones’ face and present a bright and positive face to the world.
