School Day Times

All children should come to school every day, on time and wearing the correct school uniform.

A uniform list is available from the front office.

The start of the day

  • All children should arrive at school by 8:45 am.
  • Children in the Reception and Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 classes need to lead straight into the building and go into their classrooms where their teacher and teaching assistants will be waiting to welcome them. If you need to talk to your child’s teacher please feel free to  arrange an appointment at the Main Office.
  • At Rosetta Primary School, the school day begins at 8.45 am and all pupils are expected to be settled and ready for registration at 8.55 am.  Pupils arriving after 9 am are marked as late.

  • Any child arriving later than 8.55 am is required to enter the building via the School Main Office. If accompanied, a parent or carer should give a reason for the lateness, which will be added to the register. The child will then be sent or escorted to their classroom.

  • The register will be closed at 9 am (5 minutes after the register is taken). Pupils arriving after 9 am but before the close of registration will be marked as late (L).

  • After 9.30 am pupils will be marked with a (U) and recorded as absent for the AM session. Parents must give a reason for the AM absence or lateness.

The end of the school day

  • School finishes at 3.15pm for all children. Children in Reception are dismissed from either the door to their classroom or from the South Hall. All other children are dismissed from the playgrounds.
  • We will only release children to go with adults that we know are their parents or carers. If someone different to normal is going to be picking up your child you need to contact either your child’s teacher at the beginning of the school day or the school office during the school day in order that your child’s teacher can be told about any changes.

Break and lunchtimes

  • At Rosetta we operate split break and lunchtimes in order that children can have the access to plenty of space and playground equipment needed to help them enjoy happy break and lunchtimes.
  • Children in Reception have a morning break of fifteen minutes; and lunch between 11.45am and 1:00pm.
  • Children in Years 1 and 2 have a morning break between 10:15am and 10:30am; and lunch between 12:00pm and 1:00pm.
