Granby Primary School

Times of the School Day

The school day can be found below. Please note that children are not supervised until the following times: 7.45am for children booked into the breakfast club; 8.25 for children attending toast club; 8.40 for children on the playground. Please do not leave your children unsupervised before these times. You will be informed where your child will enter and exit the building - this varies for different classes.

Our popular toast club is open from 8.25 every day, providing toast for any child who wants it. It is located in the Key Stage 1 (downstairs) hall. Research has shown that eating breakfast is beneficial to children's concentration, behaviour and ultimately, attainment. For this reason, toast club is FREE!

When the weather is wet, children can enter the halls and remain there, supervised by our staff, until the classrooms open at 8.45am.


Our crossing patrol, Maddie Clegg, will help children and parents to use the pelican crossing on Aylestone Road. She is there from 8.25 to 9.00am in the mornings and from 3.10 to 3.55pm in the afternoons.


The safety of the children is our prime concern and we cannot accept responsibility for your child before the times advertised here.


It is important that children are in school for the whole of the school day. Please therefore try to make any appointments for your child outside of the school day or during school holidays. If a late arrival or early collection cannot be avoided, please let the office know in advance. For an early collection, please inform the office at the beginning of the day so that we can try to have your child waiting for you. Unexpected early collections will always result in a delay.


If you know that you cannot be at school on time to collect your child, please make alternative arrangements and inform the office. We will never hand over a child to someone else without your authority. Please inform the office if there are people who are NOT to collect your child.

If you are going to be late, and cannot make alternative arrangements, please inform the office. There may be a childcare charge for late collections.


The office is open from 8.15 to 4.45 Monday to Thursday; and 8.15 to 4.00 on Fridays. An answer phone will take messages outside of these hours.
