The School Day

The academy gates open at 8.30am and the playground is supervised from 8.40 a.m. The bell for the start of the day goes at 8.45am and pupils line up with their class. If the weather is particularly cold or wet, the children will be allowed to come straight indoors.
This year, in order to make the most of every learning opportunity and to provide a calm and productive start to the day, children in year 6 are permitted (and encouraged) to enter their classroom from 8.35am. 
Children are not allowed to leave the premises during the day without parental agreement, e.g. visit to the doctor or dentist. To ensure children’s safety we require a note or telephone call from parents before we will permit children to leave the premises during the day. They are not able to leave without a responsible adult.
