The School Day

The school day begins at 9:00am. The school gates open at 8:50am. Children should go straight to their classroom doors, where their teaching team will greet them. Children will then have time to settle and complete a morning task, so they are ready for the register and to start learning at 9:00am.

Once inside the children can hang up coats and bags on the correct hook before going into the classroom.  The hooks are labelled so that every child has his or her own space.  It is very helpful if both the coat and the bag have been labelled with the child's name in case it gets 'lost'. 


Children who attend afternoon nursery arrive at 12:15 pm when classroom doors are opened to welcome and settle children, so they are ready to start learning at 12:25 pm.

There is a morning break  of 15 minutes.  

Early Years children and KS1 children are provided with milk and fruit daily. KS2 children are offered milk and fruit several times a week.


We encourage children to follow healthy lifestyles and towards this goal, sweets. crisps and fizzy drinks are not allowed in school.  All children are encouraged to bring in a named water bottle each day.

All children have one hour for lunch, split into thirty minutes for eating and thirty minutes outside. 

Early Years Centre 11:45 am - 12:50 pm

Years one to two 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Years three to six 12:15pm - 1:15 pm

Children going home for lunch should be back at school five minutes before the start of the afternoon session.

The school day finishes at 12:00 pm for children that attend morning nursery, 3:25 pm for children that are in Early Years and 3:30 pm in years one to six. 

Parents/carers are asked to wait outside the classroom and children will be sent out.

Early Years parents/carers are invited into the Early Years Centre to collect their child from class.  Children in years four to six may walk home.

All parents/carers should be aware that children in Early Years  and years one, two and three should not be collected by anyone under the age of 16 years.  There are circumstances where, if prior consent (ideally written) is provided by the parent/carer, a young person can collect a pupil from school.
