School gates will be open by 8:45 am. The children can come straight into school between 8:45 - 8:55am. They will head straight to their  classroom to wash their hands. 



Lunch is at 11:50 noon and is followed by a period of fun outside play, supervised by our midday supervisors. As we are a healthy school, please provide your child with a healthy lunchbox if your child is having a packed lunch.

Children will be dismissed at 3:30 pm from the back of school. Please wait on the astro turf for your child to be sent down the steps to you.  If your children are being collected by a different adult on a particular day then the teacher must be informed. Without this, children will not be allowed to leave the school grounds.
