The School Day

School starts officially at 8.55am and finishes at 3.15pm. The pupil doors are opened at 8.45am and children may go straight into their classrooms. Please ensure that your domestic arrangements are such that pupils arrive at school at the correct time each day and are collected promptly at the end of school. Lateness is recorded and late pupils have to be signed in at the office after 8.55a.m.

All of our children stay in school at lunchtime. Good quality school meals are provided by Principals Catering. They can be contacted on 020 8663 6686. Alternatively, children may bring a packed lunch and a still drink in an unbreakable container.

For information about free school meals and provision for lower income families, please contact the school office. In accordance with the statutory requirement for state-funded schools, universal free school meals are provided to all pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 who wish to have them.

As part of a continuing Healthy Eating campaign, children are permitted to bring fruit or raw vegetables to School to be eaten at break time. Sweets are not allowed. Drinking fountains are also available. We ask that each child has a water bottle to be kept in class during the day. Children in Key Stage 1 are provided with free fruit as an extra and Reception children are provided with free milk up until they are 5 years of age and then parents may pay on-line to the ‘Cool Milk Company’ if their child wishes to continue having milk. The milk is refrigerated.
