The bell rings at 8.55 a.m. and School begins at 9.00 a.m. and for Key Stage 1
children, it ends at 3.15 p.m. The Key Stage 2 children finish school five minutes
later, at 3.20 p.m. During a normal week, the infant children are taught for 21.5
hours and the junior children for 23.5 hours. These times exclude registration,
the Collective Act of Worship and playtime and lunchtime breaks.


We feel that a school uniform encourages children to identify with, and have a
pride in, their school. It also helps to ensure that children are suitably dressed
to enable them to focus on their work. Parents are therefore requested to
send their children to school in uniform consisting of:-

Long or short grey trousers

Green or grey pullover or sweatshirt

White or grey shirt or polo shirt

School tie (optional)

School shoes (not trainers)


Grey skirt, pinafore dress or school trousers
Green or grey pullover or cardigan
White blouse or polo shirt
School tie (optional)
School shoes (not trainers)

In addition, for art and technology, the children need a shirt (preferably a
large one) to protect their clothes. Please mark all items of clothing with
your child’s name.

All these items are available from the popular chain stores. School ties are
available for those who choose to have them. Sweatshirts printed with the
school name are available from the Parents’ Assocation and order forms can be
obtained from school.

Clothing for Physical Education and Games

All children will need a white tee shirt and black shorts of the P.E. style with an
elasticated waist for indoor lessons. In addition, a pair of black plimsolls are
required and these can also be used when a change of shoes is necessary due to
very wet weather. For general games lessons taken outdoors, children from
Year 1 onwards need a warm change of clothes, e.g. a tracksuit top and
bottoms, and a pair of strong trainers. Black tracksuits are preferable and are
available from school.

All P.E. clothing and shoes should be kept in a bag with the child’s name clearly
marked. When games kit is forgotten, children will be asked to wear a coat and
go outside to watch the activities. As a general rule, if children are fit to
attend school, they should take part in all activities. On the rare occasions
when a child is not fit for P.E. or games, or swimming, a note should be sent
from home to this effect. Jewellery and watches should not be worn in school.
We accept no responsibility if these items are broken or lost.


Pupil Absence from School, and Authorised and Unauthorised Absences from School

The majority of absences from school fall into the category of “authorised”. These are:-

  • Medical and dental appointments and illness
  • Other exceptional circumstances (e.g. bereavement) authorized by the
  • Day of religious observance in the religious body to which parents belong
  • A performance for which an entertainment licence has been issued.

During the school year 2005/6 there was a 95.6% attendance at 110,554 pupil sessions, with 4.4% authorised absences and 0.1% unauthorised absences. The figure for authorised absences now includes those sessions that part-time pupils miss when they enter the Reception Class.

Parents are urged to take family holidays during school vacations in order to gain the maximum benefit from the education system. Where this is not possible, such absences must be discussed with the Headteacher. It is particularly important to avoid absence during certain periods of the school year, such as early in September and the weeks leading up to and during tests and examinations.

Please ensure that the class teacher or Headteacher are informed of the reason for all absences as they must be counted as unauthorized if no explanation is given. The registration period each morning ends at 9.10 a.m. Pupils arriving after that time are marked late and added to the unauthorized absences statistics. Parents are reminded, however, that school starts at 8.55 a.m. and they are required to help us to establish good habits of punctuality for their children.
