Our School Day
The school day starts at 8.50am and finishes at 3.15pm (meaning the total weekly figure is currently 32 hours and 5 minutes). Registration is from 8.50am to 9.00am.
At 10.00am, all children from Foundation to Year 6 have a short ‘brain break’ and a quick burst of exercise when we have our daily ‘Wake Up, Shake Up!’ session. Later in the morning, children have a break from 10.45am – 11.00am.
Reception have break times which are quite flexible. Towards the end of the school year, they will join children in Key Stage 1 to have breaks at set times.
All children have lunch at 12.00 noon. Lunchtimes for all end at 1.00pm.
Younger children have an afternoon playtime.
Drop-off and collection
At the beginning and end of the school day, parents are encouraged into the playground. This helps to build up a close relationship between home and school – we want to have good links with all parents. If normal arrangements have to be altered (eg you are delayed or another person is collecting your child), please let us know. This avoids any confusion or upset.
Getting to school
To get to and from school, walking is definitely the best option! There are lots of benefits: it’s healthier than travelling by car, it improves the safety of pedestrians and road-users, and it respects nearby residents and parking regulations. Alternatively, we have bike-racks. If you do need to travel by car, please park wisely.
