School Day

School Day

The school day begins at 8:50am and finishes at 3:35pm. It is vital for the children to attend school regularly and on time. Registers are taken promptly by 9:00am, therefore children who arrive after this time must report to the main office.

Here at St John’s we offer a soft start morning entry system. At the start of the school day supervision is provided in the playground from 8:30am by a member of the Senior Leadership Team. From 8.40-8.50am children may enter their classrooms independently, where their teacher will be waiting with an early morning activity for them to complete.

At the end of the school day the gates are opened at 3:20pm. It is important for parents/guardians to be punctual when picking up their children. Collection arrangements are as follows:

Pupils who are being collected should be met in the playground at 3:20pm. It is important the pupils are clear about their collection arrangements.

Year  3, 4, 5 and 6 are brought by their class teacher to the playground.

Reception and Year 1 and 2 are dismissed from their classroom door once their parents/guardians have been acknowledged by the class teacher.

Pupils who are not collected on time will be brought round to the main office.
