Times of the School Day
Beginning of the School Day
Children arriving for before school club (which is run by Chelsea FC) can arrive from 7.20am.
All other children from Reception to Year 6 can enter the school building from 8.40am, when there is a 'soft start' to the school day in their classes. All children must be in school by 8.50am, which is when the school day officially begins and registers are taken. Children arriving after registers are taken are marked as late.
End of the School Day
The school day ends at 3.15pm; we encourage parents to pick up their children between 3.15pm - 3.25pm, as it gets very busy in the playground and surrounding roads. Ladybird Nursery and Bumblebee (Reception) children should be collected from their classroom gate; all other classes are brought into the playground for collection.
There are a variety of extra curricular clubs which take place after school throughout the week (usually until 4.15pm or 4.30pm). Clubland provide childcare until 6pm each day.
Total compulsory time
For primary aged pupils (not those children in Ladybird Nursery), the official school times are 8.50am to 3.15pm. This totals 32 hours 5 minutes per week of compulsory school time in a typical week.
A child entering the school at 8.40am each morning for the 'soft start' to the school day would attend for 32 hours 55 minutes in a typical week.
