The School Day
Parents and carers can bring their child to the Early Years classroom between 8:40 and 8:50am. Parents and carers collect their child at the end of the day from the Early Years door at 3:15pm.
Key Stage One and Two
Children enter school at the start of the day through their cloakroom doors. Doors will be open from 8.40am. Please note that school starts at 8.50am. The gate at the front of school will be locked at 9.00am for safeguarding reasons. Children arriving after this time should enter school via the office.
Key Stage One (Years 1 & 2) parents and carers collect their child from their classroom door at 3.15pm.
Key Stage Two (Years 3, 4, 5 & 6) make their way to the front of school to be collected.
Please note that the school will open and close at the usual times for all term sessions as detailed in the school prospectus and your child’s planner – for clarification: the school day begins at 08.50 each morning and ends at 15.15 each afternoon.

REQUEST FOR LEAVE OF ABSENCE
WHAT THE LAW SAYS:
Schools are regularly audited to ensure that they are following government guidelines and policies. Schools are not permitted to authorise any requests for leave of absence in term time unless it is for exceptional circumstances. The following reasons are NOT valid:
- The availability of cheap holidays or accommodation;
- The weather at a particular time of year;
- The holiday happens to overlap the start or end of a school term – this is particularly disruptive to your child’s education at the start of the school year in September.
Information about the term dates for all City of York maintained schools can be found on the City of York Council website.
