School Day and Term Dates

The School Day

The school day is from 9am to 2pm, Monday to Friday.  Morning registration is at 9am and all students should arrive promptly to avoid being marked as Late or Absent.

Number of school hours each week is 25.


Parents and Carers retain responsibility for journeys to and from the Centre.  If the Centre is more than 2 miles from your home for Primary pupils or 3 miles for Secondary pupils it may be possible to apply for transport or help with transport costs.

Pupils should arrive at the agreed time.

If your child cannot attend, please notify the Centre's administration office before the start of their session. Failure to inform the Centre will mean that the absence will be recorded as ‘unauthorised’.

To assist pupils’ successful re-engagement at school:

  • It is important that you contact us if your child is unable to attend the school at any time.  
  • If your child has not arrived at the school within 15 minutes of the expected arrival time you will be informed.


As we may need to contact you at any time about your child, parents and carers must ensure that the Centre always has your most up to date telephone contact details. 

We also need to have a reserve, or other emergency contact number, to reduce the possibility of a delay in dealing with any circumstances.

This ensures that we can work together at all times to achieve the best interests of your child.


Pupils are expected to settle to their work quickly, work hard, and show respect to the staff and other pupils.  They will be asked to sign a Code of Conduct agreement before they begin their tuition.

Teachers have high expectations and will deliver lessons in a way that encourages enjoyment and learning.  They will make ongoing assessments of each child’s work, needs and progress, and will report to parents and carers as necessary and at least three times a year. 

Parents and carers will be kept informed whenever the Educational Psychologist has been involved.
