It is important that children arrive on time to ensure that they have a settled start to their school day.  If your child is going to be late arriving at school please let us know so we know your child is safe.  Children arriving after the morning bell has sounded should be signed in at the school office by a responsible adult.

The bell rings at 8.45am and the children line up with their classes in the playground.  The class teachers bring the children into school ready for registration.
