Our School Day


From 8:15am, your child can be dropped off by the Art Barn on the roundabout or walk into school. Children who travel by bus are dropped off by the reception. All children need to come to the playground at the back of the school where a member of staff will be on duty. In the case of wet weather, the children come into school via the back playground and wait in the Sports Hall for the start of the day.


At 8:30am, a whistle is blown where the children stop. On the next whistle they line up in classes.

At the end of the school day, the children leave depending on how they get home. Children are deemed to either be a bus child, independent (making their own way home) or collected.

  • Bus children

  • Independent children

  • Collected children


These 3 categories are defined below: 


1   Bus children: Children who travel to and from school on the bus.

     leave school site by themselves.  This will include those children who:

  • Walk, bike or scooter off site and go home on their own,

  • Walk home with an older sibling,

  • Walk off site to meet an adult at a pre-arranged meeting point eg the old police station.


3   Collected children: Children who are not to leave site until an adult has collected them to take them 

  home. These will include children who:

  • Walk, bike or scooter home with an accompanying adult towards Stalham,

  • Walk, bike or scooter home with an accompanying adult towards Sutton,

  • Are driven home by an adult that is parked onsite on the school tennis courts.
