We operate a 'soft start' in the morning and encourage all children to come in to school at 8.45am. This is an opportunity for them to engage in purposeful morning tasks and settle in to the school day. These 'soft starts' help to ensure lessons start promptly at 8.55am. 

Children should not arrive at school before 8.45 am (unless attending Breakfast Club). 

It is important that children are not late for school.  Late arrival in the classroom can be upsetting for your child, and impacts negatively on their learning.
