St Patrick's Catholic Primary & Nursery School

"Christ be with me and Christ be within me"

School Times


The classroom doors open and our day begins at 8:40 a.m.


Lessons start promptly at this time - if your child arrives after 8:40 a.m, they will be missing the start of a lesson. As a school we would encourage everyone to be into school at 8:40 a.m. to enable them to be ready for the start of lessons.


School finishes at 3:15 p.m. (3:10 p.m. for Reception & Nursery)


This equates to a total of 32.5 hours a week.


If your child is unwell, please telephone the school office (01536 744447) and leave a message stating your child’s name, class and the reason for the absence before 8:40 a.m. If we do not receive   information as to why your child is absent then you will receive a telephone call from school to ascertain a reason for the absence. If we cannot contact anyone, then a home visit may be made to establish where the child is and why they are not at school. This is in line with our safeguarding policy.
