Our School Day
Registration is at 9am sharp. Gates open at 8.45am and children need to be in their classrooms for 9am.
We operate a 'kiss and drop' system in Merrymeet where parents can enter the road nearest the village and then drop off their child to be safely crossed over the road by a Lollipop Person.
We also offer parents the opportunity to purchase a parking permit at the cost of £20 per term, which allows you to park next door at Walcountians Sports Club for drop off and pick up. This cost covers the club's car park maintenance and provides direct road-free access to the school site. You can find the application form for a parking permit here.
Reception to Year 6 will start to be dismissed at 3.10pm (Nursery at 3pm).
