School hours Monday – Friday 8:45am-3:15pm Please note, the main gate closes at 9:00 and you will then need to take your child to report to the Welcome Zone and they will be signed in late. Children collected after 3:30 will be waiting in the Welcome Zone. We thank you in advance for being punctual and ensuring your child gets the best possible start to each day of learning. Welcome Zone is open during the following hours: Monday-Friday 8:30am-4:00pm Please note, the telephone does not have an answer machine facility to report absence, as we are keen to speak to families regarding this. To report an absence, please call before 8:40 or after 9:15, when other children and families have settled into school for the day. During the lunch hour the Welcome Zone may be very busy, so please do try calling back after 1:30pm. Mrs. Claire Murray or Mrs Esme Whitlock will be happy to help in any way they can.
