Our School Day

8.45

The playground is open for the children to play before school. Parents are asked to wait outside, unless they need to speak to someone in school. We encourage the children to play together on the playground as a good start to the day. We also do this because up to half the children come to school by bus and we do not want any child to feel unhappy if they cannot be with their parents while others can.
