8:50 to 12:20pm
1:15pm to 3:15pm
Reception children have continuous access to outdoor play and provision.

The main gate is open at 8:35am and KS1 and KS2 class teachers are on the playground at 8:40am to greet their children, get them lined up and ready for the day.  Reception children must be taken to their classroom, where they will be welcomed by the EYFS staff.  At 8:50am, class teachers will lead their children into school.

Registration and late arrival

Registration in the mornings for all year groups is at 8:55am. Any child arriving more than 5 minutes after this time should come into the Academy  via the main office, inform the office staff of their arrival and sign in, giving a reason for their lateness. It’s essential that your child arrives promptly at the Academy because the day starts off with the teacher explaining the day’s learning to the class. Any child arriving after 9:20am will be recorded as an unauthorised absence unless an acceptable reason is given.

Afternoon registration takes place at 1:20 pm.  Children leaving the Academy other than at official times must be signed out at the main office

Access to Academy Site

In order to ensure the safety and welfare of all our children, we ask that parents who drop off and collect children, supervise them at all times before staff are on the playground at the start of the day and as they leave the Academy at the end of the day.  The blue gate, is open between 8:35am – 9:00am and at the end of the Academy Day, the blue gate will re-open at 3:05pm - 3:30pm to collect children.

Any children who are unable to be collected on time, will be taken to the school office. Please inform the school if you are going to be late collecting your child.  Children uncollected after 5pm will be transferred into the care of Croydon's Children's Services as required by the local authority.

Breakfast Club

Breakfast club opens from 8:00am, does not have to be pre-booked and is at a cost of £3.00 per day.  At 8:40am Key Stage 1 & Key Stage 2 children are taken out onto the playground to line up with the rest of their class. Reception children are taken to their classroom.
