The School Day

Every day at The Green Infants is a busy one! We ask that the children do not arrive before 8:30am as the gates may not be open. In the case of inclement weather, the children will be admitted straight into the building around 8:40am.


Foundation Unit doors will open at 8:45am and Parents can support their child in lining up alongside the door, walk with them them in the line to the door where a member of staff will support your child in settling on the carpet.


The school bell will be rung at 8:50am and KS1 children must line up in their respective classes:


Maple Class - to the left of the main entrance door.

Willow Class - in front of the main entrance door.

Oak Class - in front of the main entrance

Elm Class - to the right of the main entrance door.


Children will walk into school with their Class Teacher.  Parents are to remain outside the school building in the morning in order to promote and develop the children's independence and to ensure the children's safety at all times.  It also enables the Teacher to start the morning routines promptly and avoid missed learning.  If you would like to speak to your child's Class Teacher please pass on a brief message in the morning, book an appointment to see them after school or speak to Mrs Whitton or Mrs Newton on the school door.


Gates are closed at 9.00am for security reasons. If your child arrives at school after 9.00am they need to ring the intercom on the school entrance gate and report to the school office.

The register closes at 9.10am. A child will be recorded as late on the register if they are not in class when their name is called. A call will be made to parents/guardians if no message has been received.


During break times, all children are provided with a fruit or vegetable snack.
