Our School Day

School Hours

We operate a ‘soft start’ to the school day which means our classrooms are open from 8:40am each day. We formally begin school promptly at 8.55am and would ask you to make sure your child is on time, as the start of the day sets the scene for the children and they will miss important learning if they are late.

We ask all parents to accompany their child to the school gates. Due to our location in the heart of Walthamstow and with our school street, we recognise that parking is a challenge and ask that parents, where possible, walk to school or utilise the many number of buses that stop close to the entrance.

If your child is late for school, please report to the School Office so that he/she can be marked present. Children arriving after their drop off time will be marked as late.

At the end of the school day (end times are at 3:20 for Reception, 3:30 for Years 1,2 and 3 or at 3:30 Years 4,5&6), please ensure you are waiting for your child at their collection time as children can become distressed when not collected on time. This would be total of 32.5 hours a week. 

Extended School Services

Breakfast Club starts from 7:30am and the children are taken to their class for their registration time.
