To ease congestion around the site we have arranged staggered starting and finishing times with Roundhay School. Our day, therefore, begins at 9.00am and ends at 3.25pm for year 1-6 and 3.15pm for Nursery and Reception.
The children in Reception have an hour for lunch from 11.45am until 12.45pm with the older children having their lunch break from 12.00pm – 1.00pm.
In the morning, registration is at 9.00am but we encourage the children to arrive as close to 8:45am as possible, when the cloakroom doors are opened. There will be focussed tasks for your child to complete and we invite parents and carers to stay to support their child’s learning until 9am, when the cloakroom doors will close. Children who arrive after the doors are closed will need to go to the main entrance door by the school office and sign in as late on the computer entry sign in system.
Assemblies take place daily at 9:45am. Thursday assemblies will be lead by one of the classes on a rota basis, in which we present their recent work to the rest of the school. Parents are warmly welcome to attend these assemblies if it is their child’s class. On a Friday we have an achievement assembly for KS1 and KS2. Children will be selected to receive a certificate from their teacher for their achievements that week as well as celebrating the Star of the Week and attendance. If your child will be receiving an award, you will be notified by text message the day before and invited to attend the assembly.
At the end of the day, at 3.25pm (3.15pm for nursery and reception classes), parents should wait for their child outside the cloakroom doors. It is important that parents arrive on time to collect their child as it can be very upsetting for a child if the person they expect to collect them is not there at the end of the day. If you are going to be delayed we ask that you contact the office to let us know. In the event of a delay, we would ask, though, that you try to arrange for an alternative adult to collect your child but please let us know who it is since we will not let a child leave school with an unknown person.
Nursery hours are 8.45am – 11.45am for the morning class and 12.15pm – 3.15pm for the afternoon class.
