Welcome to South Wellfield First School where We Shine Brightly!

  1. About us
  2. Our School Day

Our School Day


The school gates open every morning at 8:30am, so families can access our site to drop off their children.  They stay open until 9:15am but are then closed for the rest of the day.  Access is available by buzzing Reception, who will then open the gates for you.  

The school car park gate is closed during the school day and access for families is not allowed, to keep our children safe.  

The children line up in their classes to come into school at 8.45am and then register.

The gates open to parents in the afternoon at 3:00pm.

The school day ends at 3:15pm

In a typical week, the school is open to pupils for 32.5 hours.

If you are going to be late collecting your child from school, please ring the office.

The school operates a going home list that families complete at the start of the school year.  Anyone on your child's going home list can collect your child from school.  To update this list during the school year, please complete the form below.  If someone is not on the list, we will not let them collect your child.  This is part of our safeguarding responsibility.
