In 2018-19 the school will be divided into sixteen classes. Key Stage 1 (infant) will have two classes for Foundation, Year 1 and Year 2. Key stage 2 (junior) is divided into three classes for Year 5 and Year 6 and two classes for each of Years 3 and 4.
Please do not let your children arrive at school too early. We cannot accept responsibility for them before 8.35am. Conversely, please ensure your child is not late into school. Frequent late arrival means curriculum time is missed. Latecomers must report to the office on arrival.
Please ensure that all Infant children are collected promptly at the end of the school day. Young children become very upset if they think they have been forgotten. If you are delayed for any reason do let us know and we can reassure your child. If you are not able to fetch your child yourself, please let us know who will be coming instead. We do not allow the children to leave school with an unauthorised adult. A book in each KS1 cloakroom can be used to leave messages regarding after school arrangements which is read daily.
In the case of Junior aged children we ask you to let us know what arrangements you have made for them to travel between home and school.
