The School Day


  1. We are in the right place, at the right time, with the right equipment and uniform.
  2. We listen to staff, and other students and cooperate with their reasonable requests.
  3. We respect everyone’s right to feel safe, share opinions, enjoy and achieve.
  4. We follow our School Values and Christian distinctiveness.
  5. We are responsible for our own actions.

School Attendance

Regular and punctual attendance ensure your children have full access to the entire curriculum without missing out on key learning opportunities available to them. Please ensure your child attends school and arrives on time. 


School starts at 08:45 and registers are closed by class teachers at 08:50. Any children that arrive at school after 08:50  will be marked as late in the attendance record. Any child that arrives at school later than 09:10 will be marked as having an unauthorised absence.


If a child is unwell and cannot come to school, their parent/carer should call the School Office to inform us before 08:45. If we do not receive any contact from a parent/carer as to why a child is not in school then we will call home to check the reason for their absence.

A timetable of our school day is shown below.

Extra-Curriculum Activities

We offer a wide range of free clubs that run both at lunchtime and after school. Our clubs are led by teachers and teaching assistants from the school and the Trust.

We also offer a Breakfast and After School Club with West Hill Life that provides parents with the opportunity to drop their children off earlier, and pick them up later.
