School Hours and Term Dates

Official School Hours

Please make sure your child is at school in plenty of time for the start of the school day at 9am. This gives them the opportunity to get set up for the day and settle into routine before the bell goes.

The school secretary is in attendance daily from 8:30am to 12:30pm. If there is a need to contact the school, please try to call during these times. The school does have an answer phone service for you to leave a message at any time.

There is always a teacher at school from when the first bus arrives at 8am and until the last bus departs. Children can arrive at school from 8am onwards and can return to school to play after 4pm but please be aware that staff have meetings and will not be available to provide care after school hours.
