Times of the day


For the academic year 2021-22 we are keeping to our staggered drop off and pick up times as these have worked successfully in allowing time for personalised intervention sessions and has helped with reducing the traffic around school at any one time. 

We are also keeping our separate entrances for Lower KeyStage 2 and Upper KeyStage 2. Years 3 and 4 will enter via our side gate on Paynes Drive. Years 5 and 6 will enter via our main gate on Bradwell Road. Any late arrivals should enter through our main gate and be prepared to sign in electronically at reception.

Children are allocated a time slot based on their house. Your child is marked as late if they arrive on site later than 8:35am (Attenborough and Pankhurst houses) or 8:50am (Shakespeare and Valentine houses). We try our best to accommodate any changes needed due to sibling drop off at feeder schools. At the end of the day, children who arrived at school for the earlier time slot will be picked up first at 3:00pm and those who arrived at school for the later time slot will be picked up at 3:15pm
