Warley Primary School


Parental Information


The School Day

Our gates open at 8.40am each morning and close at 8.55am.  We operate a drop-zone system for pupils who are being driven to school.  Pupils walking to school can enter through either of the two gates positioned at the front and rear of the school site.  EYFS pupils make use of a gate near to their playground.  Children have a morning break and this is staggered to ensure that children have plenty of room to play and run around.  All pupils have a 1 hour lunch break.  This will be somewhere between 11.40 am and 1.15pm depending upon which year group they are in.  EYFS and KS1 pupils have an afternoon break at 1.50pm for 10 minutes.  EYFS and KS1 pupils finish school at 3.10pm.  Ks2 pupils finish at 3.15pm.  Parents are able to enter the school grounds at the end of the day from 3.05pm.  The gates are locked at 3.25pm and any pupil not collected after this time will be cared for by Afterschool Club which may be charged for.

Total cumulative hours for the week:

EYFS, KS1 and Year 3 - 31 hours 15 mins

Years 4 to 6 - 31 hours and 40 mins

Sunrise and Sunset Club

At Warley, we provide a convenient and safe wraparound care provision in our Sunshine Room. It runs during term time and is staffed by our friendly and approachable in-house school staff. Sessions at Sunrise or Sunset Club must be booked in advance, via ParentPay, 


Sunrise Club

Children who attend the Sunrise Club may arrive any time from 7:30am and will be cared for until the school gates open at 8:40am. The children will be offered a variety of healthy breakfast options and the cost of a session is £5.00.


Sunset Club

After school, children can attend the Sunset Club between 3:10pm and 6:30pm. The children take part in a range of both indoor and outdoor activities and they can also complete homework and read to an adult if they wish. The children who are still at the club by 4:30pm will receive a healthy dinner.

The cost of this provision is scaled, as follows:

Collection by 4:15pm - £5

Collection by 5:00pm - £9

Collection by 6:00pm - £11

Collection by 6:30pm - £16
