Reception Hours

Your child will now be staying for a full day in school. Reception doors will open at 8:50 a.m. for drop off and 3:20 p.m. for collection. Children will come in and leave through the Infant Hall doors. 


When picking your child up we ask that you queue along the wall leading up to the door and not behind the railings. Thank you for your cooperation.



Your child is entitled to a free school meal. They will be offered a choice between a sandwich or a hot meal. Teachers will accompany your child into the hall for lunch to ensure your child is well supported and has adequate food for lunch. If your child's initial choice is not liked on the day, we will give them an alternative that they will enjoy. If your child is a fussy eater or you have concerns, please speak to the class teacher. Your child will also receive milk and fruit during the day as a healthy snack.



Your child is encouraged to bring a bottle of water with them into school each day. Please label with your child's name. Children are encouraged to drink this water as and when suits them so to ensure children are well hydrated during the day. We ask that bottles are not filled with fruit juice as water is the best drink to keep little brains active and healthy.
