8.50am to 12.25pm

Children will need to be booked into breakfast club in advance and there will be a charge of £1 per session. This will include a breakfast of cereal, toast and a drink and activities will be provided for the children to take part in once they have eaten their breakfast, until the start of the school day. Bookings will need to be made the week in advance, along with payment.
We aim to encourage children to have good attitudes towards school and work. By giving children a sense of self discipline and pride we believe that they will learn life skills. Parents can help us by ensuring that children arrive at school in good time and are well prepared to begin the day.
Schools now have to report authorised and unauthorised absences and it is a legal requirement that the reasons for children’s absences are entered in the register, for example holiday or medical. We ask parents to notify school on the first day of any absence. A written note, confirming the reason for absence, should be sent to school when your child returns. We recommend that appointments for medical examinations are made outside of school time if at all possible.
Parents are discouraged from taking holidays in term time and authorisation is given at the Headteacher’s discretion. Request forms are available from the school secretary, to be returned to the Headteacher.
It is vital that children are in school and on time every day in order to achieve their full potential – 5 minutes late every day means that over a year a child will have lost 3 ½ days of learning opportunities!! Our school day begins at 9am and ends at 3.10pm.
To encourage improved attendance levels, we are introducing a half-termly attendance prize. Every time a child completes a full weeks attendance, they will have a ticket with their name on it put into a draw, to take place at the end of every half term. The lucky winner will receive a £10 gift voucher.
We would like to thank the following businesses for their generous donations towards the cost of the vouchers: Elite Signs, L R Hutchinson Builders, R & E Electrics, Hemswell Car Centre, T & S Motors Gainsborough, Ken Wood Construction, & Elite Pest Management.
