Our School Day
The school day starts at 8.45am and finishes at 3.15pm. Registration is from 8.45am to 8.55am.
Nursery Mornings 8.45am to 11.45am
Afternoons 12.15pm to 3.15pm
Full days 8.45am – 3.15pm
At 10.10am–10.30am, children from Key Stage One have a morning break. After that Key Stage Two have a break from 10.40am – 11.00am.
Reception have break times which are quite flexible. Towards the end of the school year as part of their transition to Year 1, they will join children in Key Stage One to have breaks at set times.
Lunch time is 12noon to 1pm for all children from Reception to Year 6.
Our younger children have an afternoon playtime. The timings of these are dependent on what the class is doing that afternoon. Older children may have a break from their work in the classroom. The class teacher may take the children out to play some global games/playtime games. Below are some sample timetables for Reception, Year 2 and Year 6 – these are flexible and change on a weekly/daily basis depending on the needs of the children.
Drop off and collections
At the beginning and end of the school day, parents are encouraged to come and wait in 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.
If you would like to speak to a member of staff, please come and ask at the school office and they will go and find them for you. Many of our staff run early morning groups or are in meetings before school so we would appreciate it if you could help us by going via the office.
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. If you do need to travel by car, please park wisely and remember that emergency vehicles may need to get through to school or the surrounding houses.
