The school day begins at 8.55am and finishes at 3.00pm. The children may enter the school from 8.45 in the morning. At St Pius X we do not use a bell system which ensures a calm and focused start to the day’s activities.

We use an electronic register which runs from 8.55am until 9.00am. Our Attendance Officer monitors the punctuality of children arriving late up to 9.15am via the main playground. They will receive a “late mark” in the register.

Unless the children are attending Breakfast Club, we ask that no child should be on the premises before 8.45am, as staff cannot be held legally responsible for their safety until that time.
