Our School Day
Registration is at 9am sharp. Gates open at 8.45am and children need to be in their classrooms for 9am. Gates close at 9am so parents need to be offsite by this time.
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 by the main school entrance.
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. Please contact the school office for further information on how to apply (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please note, places are limited and priority is given to the youngest year groups.
Nursery will be dismissed at 3pm (which provides either 15 or 30 hours per week in a typical week, depending on sessions signed up for).
Reception to Year 2 will be dismissed at 3.10pm (which provides 30hours & 50 minutes per week in a typical week).
Years 3-6 will be dismissed at 3.20pm (which provides 31 hours & 40 minutes per week in a typical week).
