Gates open at 8.40am and close at 8.55am. Any children arriving after 8.55am must sign in at the school office situated at Meyler Avenue entrance.

- Foundation, Year 1 and Year 2 – 3.10pm

Every child will have PE/Games during the week to promote regular exercise. Please click on PE Days to find out when your child will have PE (and go swimming for the relevant year group).
Children are to attend school in their PE kit on PE day.

Getting to School
To get to and from school, walking is definitely the best option! There are lots of benefits: it’s healthier than travelling by car, it improves the safety of pedestrians and road-users, and it respects nearby residents and parking regulations. If you do need to travel by car, please park safetly and legally whilst respecting our neighbours.
Alternatively, we have bike-racks for those children who wish to travel on their bikes. We recommend that children are familiarised with road safety before travelling to school by bike and a helmet is a necessity. Wherever, possible our older KS2 children are offered the opportunity to undertake Bike Safety with Blackpool Council facilitated through school.
Arriving on Time
The school gates are open between 8.40 and 8.55am each day. Arriving late, after 8.55am, can be really unsettling for children and means they miss out on some valuable learning time.
Parents and carers are responsible for making sure children arrive at school on time and establishing a good morning routine.
Going on Holiday
Schools are unable to authorise holidays in term time, except in exceptional circumstances. In this case, parents must apply to the Headteacher explaining the purpose of the trip. This can be completed through our parent app or via the school office.
In all but the most exceptional circumstances, leave will not be authorised.
A week absent from school could mean that your child will have significant gaps in their learning.
Please ensure you consult the school holidays dates available on ParentApp and on the website, so that this can be avoided.
If you would like to discuss either, arriving on time or absences, please contact the school’s Attendance Officer, Sarah Dunn via the office.
