Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Academy Day

Early Bird Club

Early Bird Club begins at 7.45am and finishes when children go to their classrooms at 8.30am. We charge £2 per day, per child and spaces must be booked in advance. 

Beginning and end of day routine

Gates to the main playground are open between 8.30am and 8.45pm. At the end of the day, gates will be open from 3.15pm and close at 3.25pm. Any children not collected by this time will be taken to the office.

Late arrivals

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. If, for any reason, your child is late, please escort them to the Academy reception office and inform the office staff of their arrival and the reason for their lateness. It is better to come late than not to come at all. Any child arriving after 9:45am will be recorded as an unauthorised absence for the morning session unless an acceptable reason is given.

Children leaving the Academy other than at official times must be signed out at the main office.


We ask that parents contact the office by 9.45am on the day to report their child/ren's absence. If we do not hear of a reason for absence, the session will go down as unauthorised. In the event of illness, your child is invited to come in later on in the school day should they feel better, with the exception of vomiting.
