Times of the School Day

Please note that due to current government guidelines, the times of the school day will differ in September 2020.

Please follow the guidelines in the letter sent to you on 15th July 2020.

* Early Years (Nursery and Reception) parents – please note that for the first two weeks of term you have an individual timetable already provided to you – this timetable is from Week 3.

Early Years parents ONLY may accompany their children to their classes; but please literally kiss and drop and leave to avoid numbers of people gathering. Please enter through the Key Stage 1 playground and then following the building around and leave by the vehicle gate.

Please note that siblings from one family should be dropped/collected at the latest start/collection time for that family.

In order for this plan to work effectively, it is crucial that everyone is prompt – please do NOT arrive too early as this will be challenging to manage. At the end of the day, please be on time to collect your child.

Please be mindful of social distancing and walk on the left-hand side as you enter and exit the entrances.

No cars will be permitted during entry and exit times to minimise risk.


Standard Cuffley School Day

Children enter Early Years Foundation Stage 1 or 2 (Nursery and Reception) at the beginning of the Autumn term in September if they are born between 1 September and to 31 August prior to their 4th or 5th birthday. A visit for new entrants and their parents is arranged in the term prior to admission.
Children will be allocated to a class. These may change during your child’s time at school. Each class has a teacher who is responsible for their day-to-day educational and pastoral care. The school also employs a number of teaching assistants who provide support to every class in the school.
