The children should not use the playground trim trails before or after school as these are not supervised.

This is available for children in F2 – Y6. If you do have a child in F1 who requires provision, please contact the office.

Open from 7.30am. If your child attends breakfast club, the typical school day is 7:30 – 3:15 (7:30 – 1:30 on a Thursday). This means your child would attend the academy for 38 hours a week.
