The School Day

We are currently running a staggered start and finish to the day.  Each class (bubble) will have it's own start and finish time and a designated door to arrive at.  

Children should arrive at school between 8.45 am and 8.55 am when the school day begins. Entry to school is through the black gates on Duke Street.


Children who arrive after the register is taken at 9.00 am but before 9.10 am are marked as late. Arrival after 9.10 am is classified as an unauthorised absence.


Children come directly into school from 8.45am and into classrooms to do “Early Bird Maths” work.  To avoid congestion, we politely request that parents of Year 1 to Year 6 children do not come into school with their children at the start of the day. In addition to this Health & Safety reason it is important for children to become independent and to line up and come into school on their own. At the end of the school day, children will be led out of class by their class teachers at 3.15 pm. Staff want to work closely with you and maintain good communications.  If you wish to speak to your child’s teacher on an urgent matter please try to make an appointment to do so at the end of the day, if possible. This will prevent delays to the start of the school day.
