The School Day

From September 2020 we are operating a staggered start and end to the day so drop off and pick up times have altered slightly.

Reception, Years One and Two:

8.55 am to 3.00pm

Children in the main school may enter their classrooms from 8.45 onwards, and will engage in a learning activity before register at 8.55 a.m.

From September 2020 we are operating a staggered start and end to the day so drop off and pick up times have altered slightly. Drop off from 8.30-9.00am and pick up from 2.30-3.00pm.

There is an Assembly each day at 09.10 a.m. Assembly includes an act of worship, which is mainly of a Christian nature. Parents may withdraw their children from Assembly by arrangement with the Head Teacher. On Fridays the act of worship is designed to be suitable for children of any faith, and is contained within an Awards Assembly, which is a celebration of all that is good in the life of the school. Each class teacher presents a shield to a child for achievement in any area of school life, academic or social. Once a term, cups are awarded to children in each class for sustained effort or achievement. In addition opportunities are taken to share children’s achievements outside school.

From September 2020 the assemblies are no longer held in the school hall but a short awards celebration is held in each class on Friday mornings.

All children in the school have a free piece of fruit or vegetable daily to encourage healthy eating.

Morning break is 10.45 to 11.00 for Year 2. 

Lunchtime is 12.00 to 1.00pm. All our children are able to order a free school dinner and these are served in the school hall. If parents prefer, for instance due to allergies, children may bring a healthy packed lunch.

From September 2020 the lunchtime is from 11.45-12.45 for Reception and 12.15-1.15pm for Year One and Two.

There is no afternoon break.
