School Calendar 2023 – 2024


Live, Compassion, Respect & Believe

A wonderful and distinctive Christian school


8:45 The gates are opened

8:55 The gates are closed – if you arrive after 8:55 am please enter through the main school entrance.

9:15 Registers close and if your child arrives after this time, they will receive an unauthorised code (U)

As soon as children enter the school, they begin to get busy with either reading or maths work. This is why punctuality is extremely important to us here at Mottram.

As you can see from the image below even 5 minutes a day late has an impact.
