School Hours & Dates

School Times September 2021

From September 2021 our normal school times will be operating (see below). Our new successful ‘one way system’ will remain and thank you for kindly sticking to our blue arrows guiding you around the school to avoid crossing on our narrows pathways.


Usual School Times

Children welcome to arrive: 8.45
First session 8.55am – 10.40am
Morning break 10.40am – 11.00am
Second session 11.00am – 12.15pm
Lunch 12.15pm – 1.10pm (children are welcome to complete their meal up until 1:20pm)
Third session 1.20pm – 3.20pm


Children are not allowed to arrive before 8.45 am (unless directly supervised by their adult). Classroom doors will open from 8:45am (signified by a bell). School starts at 8:55am (signified by a further bell). Children going home to lunch are not to return until 1.10 pm. The school office is open between 8.45am and 4.00pm.

The car park is to be used ONLY for picking up and dropping off children.

Please show consideration to other drivers and do not double park or park on the double yellow lines (and to our local neighbourhood).

School Attendance

In line with the Government’s guidelines, parental requested absence will only be granted in exceptional circumstances (e.g. military leave). Parents are asked to take their holidays out of term time. Excellent attendance is positively encouraged with a “Best Attendance” certificate being awarded. To support children into the workplace and the adult world SAST schools encourage punctuality and attendance. Persistent lateness and absent (without a justified reason/s) might result in warning letters / fines.

Attendance Guidelines


In line with national recommendations, parents are required to contact the school as soon as possible if their child is absent. A phone call or a note via a friend or sibling is best; any verbal message needs to be followed by a note on the child’s return to school.

Similarly, please notify the school if a child has to leave early during the school day, eg to visit the dentist. The school office email can be used as an alternative if required.
