Moggerhanger Primary School – Opening Hours and Procedures

Total Opening Hours per Week: 33 hours and 15 minutes.

All children are to use the side gate for drop-offs and pickups, except for those in the Before or After School Club, who will need to use the main entrance.

Whole School Gate Opening Time: 8.40am – 8.50am. The school gate opens at 8.40am, allowing children to play on the playground until the bell rings at the official school start time of 8.50am. If your child arrives after the official start time, please report to the school office.

Official Start and Finish Times:


Session 1: 9.00am* to 12.00pm

Session 2: 12.00pm to 3.00pm

All Day: 9.00am* to 3.00pm

*Note: For children starting Pre-School at 9.00am, we prefer drop-off at the main school gate from 8.40am-8.50am. They will be greeted by the Early Years Team and taken to the Chicks Classroom. There’s no extra charge for this 20-minute period. Drop-offs at the main school door from 8.50am to 9.00am are also available, if necessary.

Main School (Reception to Year 6)

School Starts: 8.50am

School Finishes: 3.15pm

We apologize, but we cannot address questions or queries at the gate in the mornings, as our focus is on greeting the children. For any queries, please use telephone, email, or ClassDojo, and we will respond as soon as possible. No visitors are allowed in the school unless pre-approved and essential for school operations.
