Please note that times to the school day continue to differ to those below due to COVID restrictions and precautions.

Reception children enter their classrooms via their outdoor area.

KS1 children enter the school via the front entrance.

Children must line up on the playground.  The bell is rung at 8.35 and teachers will take their class into school.  Learning starts immediately at Elm Tree and all classes will have early work for children to complete during registration. The doors will be closed at 8.45.    Children who attend Breakfast Club will arrive between 7.45 and 8 am via the front entrance.  Parents are not allowed to enter the school at the start of the day - messages are to be passed to senior staff who are on the playground or are manning the main playground doors.
