The School Day

Timings of the Day

We welcome our pupils into school at 9am each morning to spend time in their team base for registration. The school day finishes for pupils at 3.20pm.

In the case of severe weather conditions it may be the case that the school has to close, please listen to the local radio over which closure announcements will be made.

Educational Trips and Visits

Educational visits, residential holidays and visits are a part of the life of school. Pupils regularly visit many local places of interest in an attempt to offer as many new experiences as possible. Please look out for the special reply slips at the bottom of notes from school and help us by signing and returning them immediately. Without this permission we might be unable to take your child on an organised visit.

Transport 

The Local Authority in accordance with the Authority Transport Policy decides the transport needs of the pupils. If your child is eligible for transport you will be informed by the transport department of the pick up and drop off times. At the Phoenix School we work very closely with the Passenger Transport Team to ensure that the best interest and the safety of the children is paramount. Applications for local authority transport to school must be made online. Please contact our family liaison team if you require any support.

Visiting the School

In order to keep the site as secure as possible all outside doors to the school have an upgraded security system. All visitors must report to the main reception area, sign for arrival and departure times and collect an identity badge. In the interests of a strong safeguarding culture any visitor without a DBS will be escorted through the building by a member of staff.
