Barrow Hedges Primary School

School Timings 

In this section...

Main school timings:

At Barrow Hedges we operate a “Relaxed Start”. The gates at Radcliffe Gardens and Harbury Road open at 8:40am. Children should arrive at this time as their teacher is in class to welcome them. This is an importnant time of the day as activities are set out and children socialise with their peers and their teacher. Registration is taken at 8.55am promptly.

We ensure that senior and administrative members of staff are on duty on both gates. This enables parents to feel secure in the knowledge that children are safely on school premises. Children can be dropped at the gates from 8:40-8:55am and walk to their classrooms; entering from the exterior doors. (Only Early Years parents are allowed to enter the school site and take their children to the Nursery or Reception gates). Registers are taken in class promptly and any children arriving after this time will be marked as late. Gates are locked at 8.55am so any children arriving late will need to report to the school office.

The school day finishes at 3:10pm for Reception to Year 6 children but many children stay to clubs after school. Full details of these are provided at the start of each term.
