Our Daily Routine

Your child will be invited into school from the gate in the playground by a member of the team at 8.25.  If you have any messages for your child’s key person the team member at the gate can pass that on for you, or answer any quick questions. The doors will close at 8.30 so that we can make a snappy start to our day.  At the end of the day please wait in the same playground to collect your child.  School is open from 8.25 – 2.45 every day except Wednesday when we finish at 2.30.
