Other admin matters

The School Day

Start of morning session


(unless year group assembly)



Morning play

10:40am - 10.55am


12 noon - 1pm

Start of afternoon session


End of school day


Children should not be on the school premises before 8.40am in the morning, as the playground is not supervised before this time.

The classroom doors stay open until 3.30pm at the end of the school day to allow parents to see teachers on an ad hoc basis.

Medicines in School

Children should not carry medicines in school. Children with asthma have free access to their inhalers, which are kept in the First Aid cupboard in the staff room so that usage can be monitored.

It is hoped that most medication for chronic conditions can be managed at home. If medicine is required to be administered during the school day, a care plan will be written for the individual child.

Where children need to complete a short course of medicine, e.g. antibiotics, after they are well enough to return to school, it is preferable that parents come into school at the appropriate time to administer the dose. However, where that is not possible, parents can request that a member of school staff administer the medication. Please complete the appropriate form (see links to the left) and bring to the school office with the medication (in its orginal container with prescription label). 

Throat sweets can be looked after in the classroom (no more than sufficient for one day) and can be taken with the teacher’s permission.

Pupil Privacy Notice

The school is bound by the Data Protection Act 1988 and will not give out personal information about any child without parental consent unless the law and our rules allow us to.
