A member of staff is on duty from 8.45am each day and escorts children onto the academy premises. Children must not enter the premises before this time unless accompanied by an adult. Parents/carers of children in EYFS and Key Stage 1 are invited to accompany children to classroom entrances where a member of staff will be on hand to greet you. Children in Key Stage 2 prefer to be more independent and walk to their classroom with friends.
The academy operates an ‘open door’ policy, but it may not always be convenient to have a private conversation at the beginning of the school day.
The school day ends for all children at 3.20pm. All teachers accompany their classes to greet parents/carers at the end of the day. This is usually a good time to catch up with your child’s teacher or to make an appointment.
In addition, the Headteacher or a member of the Senior Leadership Team is often available before and after the school day, if you would like an informal chat.
