The School Day

The School Day at Holy Spirit


Beginning of the day
Nursery children should be accompanied by their parents to the nursery for arrival from 8.30 am.


Older siblings can either go earlier to Breakfast club or from 8.45 can come into school for the Basic skills session.


The playground gate will be open from 8.45 am - pastoral staff will be available to speak to parents and receive messages to be passed on to teachers. Reception staff are always available for parents on the building door. Getting the children in for 8.45 is encouraged as the basic skills session really helps for a calm start and is a great boost to additional learning. At the latest, pupils should be in class for 8.55 am. 
End of the day
Nursery children should be collected from the nursery from 11.30 and 3pm. 


Parents of all other children should wait on the yard behind the yellow line to allow all children to leave the building safely. Parents must not collect other families children, unless the parent or guardian of that child has contacted school in advance to grant permission.
