The school day at Trent begins at 8.30 a.m. and ends at 3.00 p.m. In the mornings, a member of staff is on duty in the playground from 8:20. At 8:25, the bell is rung, the children line up in their classes in the playground and then walk into school ready to start the day promptly at 8:30.
We ask that you let us know by 8:40am if your child is going to be absent. We do operate a 'first call' system; if your child is absent without explanation, you will be contacted by our admin team to establish the reason for absence and to ensure that your child is safe and with you.
At the end of the day, parents wait in the playground and children are accompanied outside by their teacher. Children then inform their teacher when they can see the adult who is collecting them. If normal arrangements are changed for any reason, e.g. someone else is collecting your child, then please make sure we are aware of this. Any children who are not collected on time, will be brought back in to the office to wait under supervision until 3:15pm.
If a child has not been collected by 3:15pm they are then registered into our After School Care and parents are billed for that provision.
