Parents

The School Day

Arrangements for the start & end of the School Day

NURSERY

Start of the day

Nursery doors will open at 8:45am.  Parents can bring children into class but we will try to encourage children to be as independent as possible.

We ask that parents wait with their children on the Early Years Playground (on the Nottingham City Homes side of the building).  Staff will not be on duty before school on this side of the building but the gates will be open from 8:30am for parents who wish to arrive at this time.  It is expected that parents will wait with their children until doors open at 8:45am.

 

End of the day

Nursery will end at 3pm.  The school gates are opened at 2:45.  Parents can wait for children on the Early Years Playground until staff dismiss the children from the Nursery door.

 

FOUNDATION

Start of the day

School starts at 8:45am. The classroom doors and registers will be open at 8:45am.  Anyone arriving after 8:55am will be classed as late and will need to sign in at Reception.

End of the day

The official end of the day is 3.10pm. However formal teaching will conclude at 3:00pm and doors will be opened for parents to collect their children.  We would like to encourage as many parents as possible to collect their children at this time to relieve congestion in and around the site.  If parents are unable to do this, children can remain in class until 3:10pm where they will be supervised by their class teacher and involved in an additional activity, e.g. reading a story.

End of the day

Children in Year 4 will be dismissed from KingFishers’ classroom.
