School Day

At Cleves Primary School, the school day begins 8.55 am (except for Nursey which starts at 8:45) and all pupils are expected to be settled and ready for registration at 9.00 am.  Pupils arriving after 9.10am are marked as late.

 Any child arriving later than 9.00am is required to enter the building via the School Main Office. If accompanied, a parent or carer should give a reason for the lateness, which will be added to the register. The child will then be sent or escorted to their classroom.

 The register will be closed at 9.30 am (30 minutes after the register is taken). Pupils arriving after 9.10 am but before the close of registration will be marked as late (L).

 After 9.30 am pupils will be marked with a (U) and recorded as absent for the AM session. Parents must give a reason for the AM absence or lateness.

Please make sure your child is lining up in class lines by: 8.55am

School Lunch

Times differ slightly for younger and older children.

Infant lunchtime is between 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm
Junior lunchtime is between 12:30 pm and 1:30 pm


We expect children to attend school each day and to be on time.
The school has a policy of telephoning families on the first day of absence to see why your child is not in school. This policy is in place to keep your child safe. To avoid the need to call you, we ask all parents to ring the school if your child is not well.

We expect your child to arrive on time for school. Lateness disrupts the lesson for other children and is taken very seriously at Cleves.

School uniform

A new uniform in September 2014 was produced in celebration of the new Federation of Cleves and Tollgate Primary schools.   It is a uniform that brings the schools together and sets out our commitment to an outstanding future in both our schools. The school uniform is available from Ian Howards at High Street North.

Both schools will wear ‘Royal Blue’ and there are different logos for each school.

The uniform brand with logo sold at Ian Howards can be seen below.
