Our school day currently starts at 8.00am for those children who attend Breakfast Club. There is a cost of £1 per child (maximum cost is £2 per family)
For all other children doors open at 8.45am. We expect our children to be in school by 8.55am.
Our doors and school gates close at 9.00am.
If you are late you will be required to take your child to the main office where you will need to sign in our late book with the reason for this.
Our late book is closely monitored with our Education Welfare Officer as part of our attendance procedures.
If you are having difficulty getting your child to school on time please speak with Miss Hughes our Learning Mentor who will be happy to discuss some strategies and different options with you!
Letters will be issued to famillies who are persistantly late and if necessary fines will be considered by the Local Authority.
The first 15 minutes of our day are extremely valuable. No learning time is lost in St Clare's! The children use their 'Polishing Pens' during this time to make any corrections to their work or try a challenge set by their Teacher.
Some children will be heard read during this time.
Lunch is between 12.00 and 1pm.
Assemblies are held on a Friday morning when we celebrate the children's achievements both academically and socially.
Collective Worship is held on a Monday morning when we take time at the start of a busy week to hear about Jesus' words and how we can live out these words in our own lives. We also learn to sing hymns during this time.
On a monthly basis we have a maths champion and a star writer who enters are writing wall of fame!
On a weekly basis we have a Star Reader and 2 Super Stars from each class!
We take this opportunity to remind ourselves about what is good about St Clare's what we have learnt that week and if and when necessary to have gentle reminders about any whole school issues. e.g. taking pride in our uniforms.
We also use this time to sing our socks off!
Parents/Carers will be invited to join us for special celebration assemblies.
Our school day ends at 3.15pm.
After school we have a multitude of after school clubs. Please see our timetable.
If you need to speak with a member of staff they are available most nights after school. Alternatively please make an appointment at the main office.
