Junior School Day Structure Hollygirt School

Day Structure

The school day begins at 8.45am. In the morning, there is organised supervision for pupils arriving from 8.00am with a range of activities available. The members of staff in charge supervise children until 8.30am when they are escorted to their classrooms. School finishes at 3.30pm.

New for September 2019 – we are trialling a pre-hours service for parents who wish to drop off at 7.45am. There will be a charge of £2.00 per day for the use of this out of hours service, invoiced retrospectively. A register of early arrivers will be kept. There will be no charge arriving at 8.00am onwards.

Parents accompany their child to the Junior School. In order for pupils to develop independence from an early age, parents are encouraged not to come into the cloakroom with their children in the morning. It is important that class teachers are informed if another adult unknown to us is collecting a pupil. Proof of ID will be requested if the collecting adult is unknown to the child.

Morning school is from 8.45am with a break from 10.25am to 11.05am. Afternoon school starts at 1.00pm with an afternoon break at 2.10pm. We operate a 40 period week with the timetable becoming increasingly structured as the pupils move up the school.

Every pupil has a peg and space for the storage of their possessions.

At the end of the afternoon, parents who collect their children are asked to wait in the Junior School playground with the exception of Nursery and Reception pupils whose parents are asked to collect them from outside their classroom and Year 5 and 6 pupils whose parents can collect them from 9 Villa Road if they wish to. Pupils not collected on time will be signed into After School Club and charged at the appropriate rate.

After School Club

The school provides supervised after school care from 3.30pm to 5.30pm for those parents who are unable to collect their children from 3.30pm or wish for them to stay to complete homework. Pupils are given a drink and snack at the end of the school day. The older pupils may begin their homework or read, with staff present to offer support. Pupils who do not have homework are occupied with craftwork, games or a story.
