Our School Day
8:45 - 3:15
Parents are now welcomed back into the school grounds to drop off their children at their classrooms doors. It is vital that you drop your children off between the times of 8:45am and 8:55 am. After this time will result in your child receiving a late mark by their name in the register.
PE days for both classes will be on Tuesday and Friday. Please ensure your child always has their PE kit in school as the expectation now is that children get changed at school for their PE lessons.
During any school closures, we deliver live lessons on Zoom daily and work can be accessed through the Showbie remote learning platform. Children are expected to attend register daily on Zoom and complete the work set by their teachers.
