Start of the day



The school gates open to pupils at 8.30am, with the school bell ringing promptly at 8.50am. Classes will be collected by their teachers from the playground. Once entered on to school premises a child is not permitted to leave until the end of the school day.


The school day begins at 8.50 am and we expect your child to be in class at that time.  Registers are marked at 8.55am and your child will receive a late mark if they are not in by that time.  At 9.10am the registers will be closed.

In the case of absence, parents / carers must call every morning before 9.15am to ensure absence is authorized.

The School Day

The school day begins at 9.00am.  All classes have a 15 minute morning break, 1 hour for lunch and KS1 receive an additional 15 minutes afternoon break. Depending on the timetable, break times will be staggered across the school.

The KS2 playground gates opens at 3.25pm for the parents, and all other gates are opened at 3.30pm.

After School Duty

Any children who are not collected will be brought to the seating area in the reception area on the ground floor by the teachers on duty.

The names of children who are not collected are noted in the late book and the person in charge of the reception office are notified of the children left so that contact can be made with parents / carers.

The children will be collected from the classroom at 3.25pm and taken into the gym/hall.

Children attending the local after school play-scheme will be collected from the playground by Westminster staff and walk to the centre as a human train.
