Downsview Community Primary School

Learning and Achieving Together

The School Day

The details of the ‘school day’ including the start and finish times of the school are detailed below. At Downsview Community Primary School, we believe that a well-structured and organised day supports both the pupils and the staff, and promotes teaching and learning.

It is important that children are not late for school.  Late arrival in the classroom can be upsetting for your child, and can affect the smooth running of the school.

Children are expected to arrive at school in good time - the school gate opens at 8:40 am with registration at 8:55 am - should your child be late the school office will expect you to complete the late book. Please support your child's learning by ensuring they arrive at school for 8:40 am

Children should not arrive at school before 8:40 am, unless attending breakfast club.  From 8:40 am the school playground will be supervised.

We have a spacious visitors' car park that parents can use for the dropping off/pick up period if required.
