The school gates open at 8.40am allowing children to come into the school yard ready to line up and be led into school for an 8.50am start. The gates are locked at approximately 8.50am when access is only via the schools main entrance. The gates remain locked until home time. The end of the day is at 3.20pm when children are led to the front of the school where they are handed over to parents and carers. This means on a typical week the school is open 32.5 hours including breaks, registration and collective worship but exluding wrap around care.
