Mason Moor
Primary School

School Day

Children will enter school in time for registration through their class room doors from the playground.

Please ensure children arrive on time ready for registration.  Should your children be late please ensure they enter through the main reception and report to the school office.

End of Day Procedures

As a school we have changed our end of day procedures to ensure that they are as safe and efficient as possible.  This is so the childre have the opportunity to develop their independence as they move through the school.  

From Monday 4th December 2017, there has been a change to the way in which children in Y3, Y4, Y5 and Y6 are dismissed at the end of the day:  All children are dismissed at the end of the day, without the teacher looking for a designated adult. 
It does not mean that your child has to walk home alone, but will mean that as a family, you will make an agreement about where you will meet up on the school playground. 

There is no change to dismissing YR, Y1 and Y2: Teachers will look for designated adults and release children only when they are identified. 

Please see below for the timings of the childrens school day.
