Start and Finish Times for Reception Classes in September


Autumn Term starts on Monday 6th September 2021.

Reception classes will be starting at 8.45am for the first 2 weeks.

Children will finish at 11.00am for the first week. 

Children will finish at 1.10pm on the second week.

From the third week, children will come in the same time as all the other children (8.50am) and leave at the same time as the rest of the school (3.05pm)


PE Kit

Children will come into school wearing PE kit on their PE days. PE days will be given out on the first week back.
