What time does school start?

School begins at 8.45am to 9.00am, at this time children can enter the school at their allocated drop off point, which is either the large hall, next to the front entrance or at the Piggy Lane gate.  Both entrances close at 9.05am.  If your child arrives after 9.00am, they will have to go to the front office, where they will be marked as late on the register. 


What do I do if my child is sick?

If your child is not well enough to attend school, please call the school on 0121 675 2611 and leave a message on our absence line stating your child’s name, class and their reason for absence. Please update us daily if they are not returning the following day.
