The Junior School Day

We hope that the following information will be helpful for parents and children at the Junior School. If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact the office staff who will be happy to help.


Our School Day


The first school bell rings at 8:45am. Pupils are expected to make their way to their classrooms when this bell rings to put away bags and coats, and then read or work quietly under teacher supervision until the second bell at 8:55am. It is important that all children are in class by the second bell, when registration takes place.


Pupils are not supervised by school staff until 8:45am. If they are in school earlier than this time then parents/carers are responsible for the safety and well being of their children. Parents are welcome to come onto the school site to supervise their children. The main Parsonage Road gate, Lagger Close gate and Hillside Close gates are open from 8am.


Pupils arriving after 9:00am will be marked late and must report to the office to tell the School Secretary that they have arrived and to let her know of any School Meal requirements. The Lagger CLose gate, and the Hillside Close gate will be locked at 9:05am, so the only access for late arrivals will be via the main entrance in Parsonage Road.


Morning break is between 10:35am and 10:50am and the lunchtime break is between 12:20pm and 1:20pm. Lunch break usually ends with a Wake and Shake session. Afternoon registration takes place immediately after the lunch break and the afternoon session starts at 1:25pm.


School finishes at 3:30pm and children will be dismissed from class at this time. The Lagger Close and Hillside Close gates are unlocked at approximately 3.15pm, as is the side gate for the footpath that goes by the brick wall of the main hall. Please ensure that both you are your child are aware of your meeting place at the end f the day.


We politely request that parents do not use the staff car park at the beginning or the end of the day when dropping off or collecting children, ie not between 8am and 9am and between 3:15pm and 4:30pm.
