School Day and Safe Collection of Children

School Day 
Harbertonford C of E Primary School offers total weekly hours of 32.5 for compulsory attendance. 
The school bell rings at 08.50am and all children must arrive by this time.
Morning Break is at 11.00 to 11.15am
Lunch Break is 12.00 - 13.15
School finishes at 3.20pm and children can be picked up from the playground area outside the classrooms.
If children are travelling by school transport they will be escorted on to the relevant bus by a member of staff.
In addition to the safe collection of children policy above, we have some specific rules at Harbertonford Primary School.
Children walking home:
Children may only walk home if they are in Year 5 or 6 and if we have express written permission from parents on the days they are walking. This could be given as permission to walk every day, or every Wednesday or just on specific dates. 
Late collection:
We understand that sometimes traffic can be poor or other difficulties can arise when collecting children so we will look after your children for 15 minutes after school if this is the case - please call us if you can to let us know.
