Owing to COVID 19 school is currently operating staggered start and end times to the day. A letter has been sent out detailing these for each class.


The school day begins at 8.55 am 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. Any children who arrive at school after 9.00am will need to enter the school through the main entrance at the office and be accompanied by an adult.

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.

Morning Nursery session begins at 8:30 and ends at 11:30. Afternoon nursery begins at 12:15 and ends at 3:15. Children attending nursery are asked to enter the school via the nursery gates unless attending breakfast club.
