Dothill Primary School

Update to timings from 19th April 2021

IMPORTANT: update to timings for the beginning and end of the school day

When we return to school after Easter on 19th April we are going to have different start and end times. This is in order to reduce the time it takes to get all children in and out of school. You will have a 10 minute allocated time slot rather than the current 15 minutes. The new timings will be as follows.


Year group


Gate opens


Gate opens

Year 5 and 6

8.30am – 8.40am

3.00pm – 3.10pm

Year 3 and 4

8.40am – 8.50am

3.10pm – 3.20pm

EYFS, Year 1 and 2

8.50am – 9.00am

3.20pm – 3.30pm

Please remember that you will not be allowed in before your allocated timeslot and you will be asked to wait.

You will still need to wear a mask.

You will still need to accompany your child around the one way system (just one adult please).

If you have children in more than one year group the system remains the same:

AM – bring the children at the time of your YOUNGEST child

PM – collect the children at the time of the OLDEST child

You have been absolutely brilliant at following the rules and sticking to the systems. We really appreciate this and I believe that we have all been safer because of it.

I’ll see you at the gate on the 19th April at your new times!!

Best wishes
