The School Day








Dates and Times

Time of Day

Foundation Stage / Key Stage 1

Key Stage 2

Morning 9.05am

9.15 - 11.45 a.m.

9.15 - 12.30 p.m.

Afternoon

12.25 - 3.00 p.m.

1.10 - 3.00 p.m.

Although the school day does not formally begin until 9.15 a.m., the children should arrive in school between 9.05 a.m. and 9.15 a.m, and then go straight to classrooms. The school office is open from 8.30 a.m- 4.30 p.m. After 4.30pm please leave a message on the answering service. Please ring if you have any queries or questions.

It is the responsibility of the parent / carer to contact the school on the first morning of the child’s absence. This can be done by leaving a message on the answer phone or phoning when the school office opens at 8.00am. In any case a parent/ carer should contact prior to 9.30am. If this contact is not made Riverside School will contact the parent/carer by telephone or, if the parent is unobtainable, send a text message or write a letter requesting information.


The Head teacher will only consider authorising an absence during term time where an application has been made in advance and where she is satisfied that there are exceptional or special circumstances to justify the request. The DfE (2013) now state that leave of absence requests for holidays should not be granted.


It is acknowledged that due to individual needs of pupils at Riverside School, the Head teacher may apply special consideration to requests for compassionate leave or where a parent/carer can demonstrate external funding has been awarded to a family for a holiday.

The school runs an ‘Early Bird’ Club for children who need to arrive in school early - from 8.35am
