A Small School with a Big Heart, guiding our children to become kind and courageous citizens.
As a small rural school, our opening times reflect the need for families to travel to the school whilst also ensuring siblings can be taken and collected from the local junior schools. We have submitted our opening times to the Local Authority and will follow any guidance, including parent consultation on different timings in line with the government's White Paper 2022.

8:45am - 9:00am Soft Start
Gates open at 8:45am
-8:45-9am quick drop-off at the large gates. A member of staff will be supervising. No parents/carers on the playground.
Gates close at 9:00am
-Any child arriving after this time will require their parent to call on the small gate intercom, for their child to gain access to the school site and to walk to their classroom. As lessons will have begun, we ask that parents/carers do not enter classrooms but go straight to the office to sign their child in. The parent/carer is required to complete a late form, detailing the reasons for the late arrival. This will be logged on the child's register and file. Three lates within a half term will prompt a meeting with the headteacher to discuss support to ensure the child does not miss any more education. Formal lessons start at 9 am, it is imperative that children are not missing learning and have the very best opportunity to succeed.
3pm School finishes
- Gates are opened at 3pm
-Parents/carers come on to the playground.
-Collection is from the class exit doors.
-Please stand back, in a space where your child and their teacher can see you so they may be dismissed safely.
-If you need to talk to the teacher, please allow all children to be dismissed safely first before approaching them. Longer discussions may require a scheduled meeting.
We pack the children's learning day full of wonderful opportunities, interactions and fun. Please help the children to gain the most from their school day by building a morning routine and afternoon schedule so punctuality is mastered.
