Monday - Thursday 8:40 am - 3:15 pm
Friday 8:40 am - 2:00 pm
We operate a "trickle" start to the day at St Mary's. Children are able to come onto the school site at 8.40 am and go straight to their classroom. Staff members are on duty every day from 8.40 am to supervise the children as they come into school.
Breakfast club children are able to come into school at 8 am.
We have found that children become more independent when left at the picket gate to walk down to the playground alone. Younger children can be left in the playground with the duty teachers in the morning. All children are to be collected from the outer classroom doors at the end of the day. Any worries, please see the class teacher. The County cannot be held responsible for children at school before 8.40 a.m.
If you wish to see your child’s teacher, please make an appointment. If you are going to be late picking your child up at the end of the day, please try to let us know. Please impress upon your children that they should wait for you in the reception area and not wander off alone. Adults are on duty in both playgrounds at break times and lunch times each day. Lunch time is supervised by extra assistants who are afforded the same respect as teachers.
