Our School Day
|Year Group||Start time||Finish Time|
|Years 1 & 2||8.45am||3.15pm|
We appreciate that some parents may wish to bring their dogs onto the school site when dropping off or collecting their children from school. However, in the interests of health and safety, parents are reminded that dogs (other than service dogs) are not permitted on the school grounds - this includes dogs being carried by adults.
We would also request that parents do not leave their dogs tied up to the school fence near to the school gates as this is also a health & safety concern.
Thank you for your cooperation.
