The School Day

Morning arrangements
 
Learners arrive at school to start at 9.30am. According to advice in their statements, most learners are transported to and from school by taxi or minibus, although parents may bring their own children if they wish. Transport is arranged by the Children, Schools and Families directorate, based at County Hall, Truro. The passenger assistants and drivers accompany the children to their classrooms and ensure that there is a member of staff to receive them before leaving. If there are any problems regarding transport arrangements please contact the Passenger Transport Unit on: 01872 322003 (access via the Council's information centre).
 
Lunchtime arrangements
 
Hot meals are available in school. These are prepared and served by our School cook. These should be paid for regularly in advance (weekly, half termly or termly as you wish).  Please send the correct money, or a cheque made payable to Special Partnership Trust in a named envelope or purse. Although we encourage all children to have a hot meal, provision is made for children to bring a packed lunch.  This should be brought to school in a named lunchbox or similar container.
 
Any parent who feels that their child may be entitled to free school meals should contact the Free School Meals Department, Schools Section, County Hall (0300 1234 100).
 
 
End of day arrangements
 
Learners leave school between 3.30pm and 3.45pm.  Departure times are staggered in order to alleviate congestion outside school and to ensure that pupils leave the school in a safe, calm manner.  Learners are called by tannoy to the foyer from their classrooms when their transport is ready to leave.  School staff escort them to meet the transport personnel who ensure that all learners on their run are present before loading the vehicle and leaving the premises.
