The School Day

We encourage parents to please make every effort to ensure your child arrives to school on time in order to have a good start to the day.


Our Nursery has a session every day in the mornings from 8.40am to 11.40am.


For children in Reception to Year 6, a total of 32.9 hours is provided in a typical school week.

The school day starts at 8.55am. At Bruce Grove, the gate is open for arrival between 8.45-8.55am. Children arriving after 9.00am are marked as late in the register.

The school day ends at 3.30pm. The gate is opened for parents to collect their children from the playground between 3.30-3.40pm. To avoid any distress to your child, please collect them on time. The school may charge parents a fee for late collections. (Please see our late collection protocol letter).
