Our School Day
School starts promptly at 8.55am
The main school gate in The Peak cul-de-sac is accessible throughout the school day although you will have to “buzz” at times. The side gates in Peak Hill and Carlton Terrace are only opened between 8.45am and 9.05am and 3.20pm and 3.45pm to ensure the safety of our children.
If you are late arriving in the morning (after 9am)
Please go to the office to get a late slip and be added to the register. Younger children will be taken to their classrooms by office staff as parents should not be going to class doors after 9am.
The school day is split into two sessions – morning and afternoon. Please note that if you arrive after 9.30am, your child will get an “unauthorised absence” mark for that morning.
School finishes at 3.3opm
Except on the last day before the Christmas, Easter and Summer holidays when school closes at 2pm prompt.
If you need to change your usual picking-up arrangements, please telephone the office on 020 8699 8537 BEFORE 2.00pm wherever possible.
Children who are more than 15 mins late being collected at the end of the school day (i.e. after 3.45pm) will be cared for in our “late room” and the part of our Charging Policy relating to late-collected children will apply.
If your child is ill
Please phone the office on 020 8699 8537 on each day your child is ill, before 9.15am – if we are busy, please leave a message.
Reception and Year 1 – 12 noon to 1pm.
Year 2 to Year 6 – 12:15pm to 1:15pm.
The lunch-hour is split between time in the dinner hall and time in the playground. As well as our wonderful Meals Supervisors, we have the services of our Fit for Sport coach during the lunch-hour who organises playground games with the children. Children are allocated time on the trim trail each week.
During wet playtimes or lunchtimes, staff are allocated to each classroom to help keep the children occupied with indoor games or drawing etc.
