The school day begins at 8:45 and finishes at 3:30pm.
Please make sure your child arrives on time. They should be in class at 8.45am when lessons will begin. Your child may become distressed and worried if they are late for school and we want to give them the best possible start to the day.
Children may wait on the playground from 8.40am. If it is wet the children may wait quietly in the hall until they are sent to their classroom. They are supervised from 8.40am.
We encourage the children to read or chat quietly while they are waiting in the hall.
Please do not drop off your child at school before 8.30am.
At the end of the day please meet your child outside school. You are very welcome to wait in the front porch where there is a small seating area but please allow children to exit the building safely.
If you collect your child please make sure they know where you will meet them.
Children in year 1 are led into the school hall by their teacher to meet you at the hall fire exit.
Children in Year R are led in to the main school by their teacher to meet you at the far doors.
Some parents find it easier to wait outside the front doors at the end of the day.
Children who get the 64 (Ronague) or 11a (Castletown) bus home at the end of the school day wait in the hall and will be directed onto the bus by a member of staff. There is always one member of staff on bus duty at the end of the day.
