Our School Day

Registration is at 9am sharp.  Gates open at 8.45am and children need to be in their classrooms for 9am.

We operate a 'kiss and drop' system in Merrymeet where parents can enter the road nearest the village and then drop off their child to be safely crossed over the road by a Lollipop Person.  We also are trialling a parking permit scheme with Walcountians Sports Club which is next door to the school.  For a small fee to cover the club's car park maintenance, parents can park at the beginning and end of the school day with direct road-free access to the school site.

Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 finish at 3.10pm

Years 3 to 6 finish at 3.20pm
