Our school day....

Children assemble in the playgrounds, the gates having been opened by the caretaker at 8:30. 

Support staff will be on door duty and will open the doors at the times stated below. 

Teachers stand at their doors and welcome children into the classroom. 

At 8:50 the doors are closed and any children who arrive after this time are to go to the front entrance where a member of the well-being team will collect them.  

In the interests of safeguarding children, all of the gates are locked by the caretaker.
