Our School Day

Our School Day

The school day starts at 8.45am and finishes at 3.10pm, the gates onto the playground are opened at 8.30 and 3.00pm.

Registration is from 8.45am to 8.55am.

Morning playtimes

All children have a morning break from 10.30-10.45am.

Lunch

The start of lunchtime is staggered, children in Reception have their lunch first, at 11.45am, with Y1 through to Y6 children following after them. Lunchtimes for all ends at 1.00pm.

Afternoon playtimes:

Only children in Reception and KS1 (Y1 & Y2) have an afternoon playtime every day.

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 telephone the school to let us know. This avoids any confusion or upset for the children.

Due to limited space in the car park, we can only allow parents into the school who hold a valid Blue Badge and required access to our Disabled Parking spaces.

If you need to come into school after 9.30am or before 2.45pm please use the intercom to be admitted into the car park.

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.
