Term Dates

Our Term dates tend to mirror those of our Local Authority, Bedford Borough Council. Occasionally there are changes, due to a number or reasons. If we deviate from Bedford Borough Council for any reason, the change and the reason for the change will be published on our website and through our Class Dojo secure platform. 
Daily arrival / departures information: 
Gates will be open from approx. 8:30am and doors will open at 8:45am, staff will be on the playground / at the doors to meet and greet our children. Please make sure children are in school to start their day  by 8:55am. 
Parent Link staff (Usually Ms Hall) will be available for any questions / messages and Teachers of Reception, Year 1, Year 2 and Year 3 meet their children at the external door each morning.  Parents of children in Year 4, 5 or 6 can pass messages to parents through Ms Hall on the playground or through Class Dojo / the School Office.  
At the end of the day - Reception and Year 1 children are dismissed at their doors - so that they leave one at a time once a parent / carer has been seen. Children who attend After School Club wait until the end and are taken to Club.  Children in Year 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 are dismissed from the playground each day.
Children in Year 5 and 6 can walk to and from school each day and we ask parents to let us now if this is the case, so we can safely release children in the correct way.
2022/2023 Term Dates are detailed below. (Please take note of the additional Bank Holiday for the King's Coronation)

NEW INTAKE FOR SEPTEMBER:  It is very likely that our new Reception Intake will start school with us on the 4th September 2023. This is a provisional date and will be confirmed later in the school year.
