The School Calendar 2019-2020 & 2020-2021
The School day
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 the children may come into school at any time from 8.45am onwards. There is a menu of activities for your child to choose from and we ask all parents to help their child settle into the school day by choosing an activity to do. The cloakroom doors open at 8.45am and close at 9.00am. Children who arrive after the doors are closed have to come to the main entrance door by the school office and sign in as late on the computer entry sign in system.
Assemblies take place for KS1 on a Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday morning. KS2 have their assemblies Monday, Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. On a Friday we have an achievement assembly for both KS1 & KS2. Children will be selected to receive a certificate from their teacher for their achievements that week.
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.
