Starting the day the right way…
Our school day starts at 8:55am. Please ensure children are at school at or before 8:55am so that they can be met by the teachers and be ready to start their learning at 9am. Any child who arrives at school after 9am must come into school via the main office. As it is disruptive for parents to be walking inside the school with their children once learning has started, children who are late will be taken from the front desk to class by a member of staff. This is also an important part of our rigorous safeguarding procedures at the school.

Details about the school P.E. Kit are available the PE information booklet. Term and holiday dates are on Southwark’s website. For inset days and other dates, check the calendar on this website. Children in Nursery and Reception must be collected by an adult (over 18). Children in Years 1 and 2 should be collected by someone who is able to take responsibility for them, preferably someone who is over 16.
If you are going to be late collecting your child, please telephone the office so they can let the child know. To a young child, a wait of even five minutes can seem like a very long time and can cause considerable distress if they have no information as to why and how long they will have to wait.
