School Term Times & Dates

Sacred Heart Primary School – Term Times & Opening Hours:

The playground is open from 8.50am and children should be in the playground before the first bell is rung at 8.55am.   School starts promptly at 9.00am, when the second bell rings. Parents leave their children to come in on their own with their class teacher, apart from nursery children (see ‘Our School Day’ for more info). Children must be brought to school and collected on time each day. School finishes at 3.30pm (times differ for part time nursery pupils.)

If you arrange for someone to collect your child instead of you it is important that you tell the school beforehand.

If, as a parent of a pupil attending this school, you require a paper copy of the information on this website, we shall provide this free of charge.
