The School Day

The school day starts at 9:00am with children being dropped off at our unit entrance via Friars lane. The school day finishes at 3:00pm for all pupils.

Morning Playtimes

During the morning, children have snack time together, where we work on self-care skills before time outside.


Children have their lunch between 12pm and 1pm. They eat their lunch in their classrooms before having supervised play.

Drop-off and Collection

Many of our children are dropped off by taxi via the entrance in Friar’s Lane. Parents and carers collecting their children are also asked to use this entrance. If normal agreements have to be altered (e.g. you are delayed or another person is collecting your child), please let the office know. This enables us to inform your child and avoids any confusion or upset.

Getting to school

To get to and from school, walking is definitely the best option even if it’s just for the last part of your journey! There are lots of benefits: it’s healthier than travelling by car, it improves the safety of pedestrians and road-users, and it respects nearby residents and parking regulations. Alternatively, we have bike-racks. If you do need to travel by car, please park wisely.
