After your child's first day, they will then be attending full time. Please come onto the playground with the rest of the school where you will see members of the EYFS team to help you find the entry door to your child's classroom. They should arrive at their classrooms between 8:45am and 8:50am. At the end of the school day, your children need to be collected from their door at the end of the day. We kindly ask that you are there at 3:20pm waiting for your child. Please make sure that the class teacher knows the adult who is collecting your child, and if you are running late to collect them, please phone the school office.
