Tollgate Primary School is a culturally rich and diverse community in Newham. We offer a wide range of extended services for families in which they have the opportunity to take part in.
Our popular Breakfast Club runs daily, where children are provided with breakfast and activities before the school day begins.
The Tollgate Community Hub staff are available to assist you with any questions.
We expect children to attend school each day and to be on time. Lateness disrupts the lesson for other children and is taken very seriously at Tollgate. 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.
School Day: 8:30am – 3:00pm.
This equates to 32.5 hours per week.
The school gates will be open from 8:20am every morning.

Children may have a school lunch, bring a packed lunch or choose to go home for lunch. Currently school dinners are free for all primary school children in Newham.
There is a choice of menu and a wide variety of food types available. Halal meat and vegetarian options are available every day and children with special dietary needs can be provided for. Please come to see us and we will discuss this with you further. Drinks are provided and children are encouraged to eat a healthy balanced diet.
Children staying with a packed lunch may bring a drink. Please do not send children to school with cans or glass containers.
