Drop off is from the side entrance on Mosspits Lane.

Pick up will be from two exits: RC from the gate by the lower hall, 

RH from the entrance door (the same one used for drop off).

Families in multiple years:

Drop siblings off first, then your Reception child;

Pick up your Reception child first, then their siblings.


Reception children are dropped off from 9:00 AM

We have milk/water and snack in the morning session

Lunch is from 12:00 to 1:30 PM

Reception children are picked up from 3:00 PM

Throughout the day we have time of learning together with an adult,

times to explore and learn with our friends and times when we work in small groups with an adult.

Children should bring in every day:

  • a water bottle - labelled with their name
  • a coat

It is also useful to have in school: 

a pair of wellies and  a waterproof coat with a hood 


PE will take place on Friday mornings: 

Please wear your kit to school, covered by a school jumper/cardigan and jogging bottoms. Bring your pumps with you (these will be kept in school).


Please ensure that all items of clothing are clearly named, e.g. coats, jumpers, shirts, trousers, ties, pumps, PE kit etc.

Please keep getting your children to practise dressing and undressing,

this is a useful skill for them to learn - especially the buttons.
