School Day...


The school day runs from 9am until 3.15pm

Morning Session: 9am until 12pm

Lunchtime: 12pm until 1pm

Afternoon Session: 1pm until 3.15pm


Pupils are asked to arrive at school between 8.45am and 8.55am. The children should come to the school playground and line up with their class before they are welcomed into school by their class teachers.

We value our partnership with parents and therefore operate an 'Open Door' policy. However, we would ask parents to be mindful of how busy teachers can be at the start of the day and for them to consider whether it would be more appropriate to request to speak to the teacher at a mutually convenient time.

The school office should be advised of any changes to going home arrangements for the day.

To ensure the safety of our pupils no child will be allowed to leave school during school hours or at the end of the day unless collected by their parent or if parental consent has been given for another adult to collect them. It is important for parents to keep the school informed of any unusual arrangements or possible delay in collecting the children.


School Bus

Parents whose children are in catchment and are entitled to transport will receive a letter and form for completion from Hampshire Transport to enable them to apply for a bus pass.  If at any time there is an alteration to the normal routine, please inform the school by letter: e.g. collection by car, or getting off at a different stop
