Details of the school terms and holidays are regularly sent out in newsletters and always at the end of a school year for the following year.


They can also be found on the Essex County Council website and the school website.

In addition to the County wide holidays there are staff training days. Details of these are shared with parents and carers at the beginning of the Autumn Term.


The School Day

8.45 a.m.

The entrance doors are opened. Parents and carers are invited to sit with their child to share a quiet reading time until the official start to the day.

8.55 a.m.

The bell is sounded and the register is taken



1.00 p.m.

Afternoon session begins.

3.00 p.m.

School ends.

It is important that your child arrives on time and develops the habit of being punctual. Anyone arriving after 9.00 a.m. is registered as late and will be taken to their class by a member of staff to minimise disruption to the class. If you know that your child will be late and they require a school lunch could you please telephone the school so that one can be ordered.
