Arriving at school

The children should arrive at the Academy between 8.30 am and 8.50 am.

Parents should note that children arriving before 8.40am are unsupervised and the Academy cannot accept responsibility for their safety and well-being.

Children should not come into the Academy via the main entrance, but use the side entrance from Orchard Gardens, or the gates on the twitten.

All children who are late must report to the Academy reception, to be signed in.

Going home at the end of the day

The children leave the Academy at 3.25 pm. Members of staff release their children from the classroom or year group doors onto the playground. Year 5 and Year 6 are able to go home by themselves provided the Academy receives written permission from parents.

The Academy gates are opened at 3.20pm.  Parents waiting with younger children must be fully responsible for their safety at all times, and supervise their children’s behaviour.  We request that children do not climb on school property, or play in Kelly’s garden.  The Academy cannot be held responsible for any accidents occurring before or after the school day.

Please be punctual; if you are unavoidably delayed, please notify the Academy office that you will be late.  Any child whose parents are unexpectedly late should not leave the Academy site alone, but go to the Academy reception which is staffed until 4.00pm.  Either a member of the office staff or the duty teacher will endeavour to contact the parents, and will care for the child until the arrival of a parent.
