Mornings: 9.00. -12.20 – Key Stage 2
Afternoons: 13:00 – 15:00
Doors to the school open at 08.45. Please ensure that your child is in school on time; being late upsets children and it’s not a good start to the day! Children need time to say hello to their friends and organise their things. All children who come to school after 09.00 are requested to report to the school office as soon as they arrive.
Responsibility for the supervision of children is accepted from 15 minutes before school begins in the morning. Before this time supervision cannot be guaranteed. When the doors open at 08:45 children may go to their classrooms and organise their belongings so they are ready for the day.
There is a morning playtime from 10.25 until 10:45. There is no playtime in the afternoon.
All parents may enter the classrooms at the beginning of the day. However we do request parents encourage their children to be independent and to exit from classrooms just before the bell rings.
The school day finishes at 15:00. Parents are requested to meet their children outside the school buildings on the playground.
We rely on you, as parents, to ensure that your child wears the school uniform. Children really dislike being different and enjoying feeling part of the “Stratford Team”!

The required school uniform is as follows;
- School sweatshirt or cardigan
- White shirt
- Grey or black trousers or shorts / grey or black pinafore dress or skirt
- Blue / white checked / striped dress or skirt

It is absolutely essential that all clothes are labelled. It is also essential that each child has a drawstring bag, clearly named, in which to keep his or her P.E. Kit. All uniform is checked for names at the beginning of each term.

Pupils may wear watches and a small pair of studs for pierced ears (in ear lobes only). Nose studs and other types of body piercing are not allowed. No other jewellery is allowed. In order to comply with L.A. Health and Safety guidelines, pupils are required to remove ear-rings for PE activities. If children cannot remove them, they are asked to cover them with tape.
