The school is open to receive pupils from 8.50am where a teacher will be present to receive your child at the school gate. Please do not leave your children unattended at the school before that time as the yard gate is locked. The bell is rung at 8.55am by the duty teacher and the children are then taken into school.

Please collect your children in the afternoon within ten minutes of the end of the session (or the ending time of an after school club).

The Village Hall car park is the designated area for parking in the morning and afternoon to drop off and pick up children before and after school as the parking is very limited at the front of the school. We are very grateful to the Village Hall committee for allowing us use of the car park.

The headteacher and staff are available for consultation before and after school.

Please feel free to approach the school at any time – we have an “open door” policy.

Attendance

If your child is absent from school for any reason, please telephone to warn us and provide a note as soon as possible. If we do not hear from you, then we will contact you by telephone before 10.00am. on the first day of absence.

The attendance record at the school is very good. 2014/2015 – 96%
