With effect from September 2020, we will be welcoming all of our children back to school.

To ease congestion around the site, we stagger our start and finish times with Roundhay High School.

From January, we will be offering full wrap-around care for our Nursery children, meaning they can attend from 7.30am until 6pm throughout the week. Please contact the office for more details:


In the morning, registration is at 9.00am but we encourage the children to arrive as close to 8:45am as possible, when the cloakroom doors are opened. There will be focused tasks for your child to complete each morning. Children who arrive after the doors are closed will need to go to the main entrance door by the school office and sign in as late on the computer entry sign in system.


The children have an hour for lunch from 11.45am am until 12.45pm in Reception and from 12.00pm until 1.00pm in Years 1 to 6.


At the end of the day, at 3.25pm (3.15pm for nursery and reception classes), parents should wait for their child outside the cloakroom doors. Any parent that arrives after the cloakroom doors are closed will need to collect their child(ren) from our Wrap Around Care. There will be a charge for this service.


Currently, due to additional restrictions, please see the letter to parents on the home page around changes in entrance points.


Due to social distancing guidelines, we will be unable to have assemblies in school, including the weekly celebration assembly, when we return to school.  However, we will continue to celebrate the children's work through the year group pages of the website and through zoom.  Check here or on the mobile app for further details in September.
