Hornchurch Academy Trust

The School Day

We have high expectations of attendance and punctuality and expect your child to arrive promptly at the start of the school day.

Any pupil arriving at school after the official start of the school day is recorded as late and will be monitored by the senior staff in school and the Academy.

Please collect your child/children on time at the end of the school day. All late collections are monitored by senior staff and the Academy.

Our gates open at 8.40am and the school day ends at 3.20pm. This meets the government requirement of 32.5 hours per week.​

The school day is divided into two sessions:

Morning:  08:45am - 12:15pm     Afternoon: 1:15pm – 3:20pm

The school day is arranged as follows:
