Our School Day...

School begins at 8.55am.  At this time all pupils should be in school ready to start their learning.  Children are allowed to come in to the school grounds once an adult is on duty at 8.40am.  We kindly ask parents not to leave children unaccompanied in the school grounds before this time.  

If you need to leave your child to school at an earlier time we have a Breakfast Club from 7.45 am every morning for only £2.25 per day.  All pupils are welcome to attend.

Please note Primary 1 and 2 finish at 2.00pm every day.  Primary 3 finishes at 2.00pm on Monday and Thursday.

Morning Break...

Break lasts for 15 minutes.  This is a chance for all our pupils to have a healthy snack  e.g. an apple, banana, grapes etc.  We ask all parents to be mindful that Ashgrove Primary is a 'nut-free' zone.  Please ensure you do not use nut products as part of packed lunches or mid-morning snacks.

Holiday Arrangements

How to notify us of an Absence

We firmly believe that pupil attainment is directly linked to excellent attendance at school.  All pupil absences must be accounted for.  Parents should contact the school on the first day of absence.  This should be followed up by a brief explanatory note on return to school.  Please note that only in very exceptional circumstances will Holiday's taken during term time be granted as authorised leave.  We strongly discourage Holidays taken in term time.
