TThe school day starts at 8:55 and finishes at 3:25pm for KS1 pupils and 3:30pm for KS2 pupils. Our doors open at 8:45 so that we can ensure that the children are in on time. Between 8:45 and 9am pupils take part in Morning activities which help them practice basic skills. The doors shut at 8:55am and after that children need to enter via the office, signing in on the Inventry system giving a reason for lateness.
At 10:30am, children from Y1 to Y6 have a 15 minute break. Fruit can be brought from home or snack can be purchased from school at a cost of 40p per day.
Children in Reception have their lunch at 11:45 and play out until 1pm. Children in KS1 and 2 have their lunch time between 12 noon and 1pm.
We have a whole school assembly on a Monday afternoon. On Tuesday, the whole school takes part in My Healthy Mind assemblies. Wednesday and Thursday see Key stage assemblies taking place and on Friday we hold a celebration assembly. All of our assemblies start at 3pm.
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 good relationship between school and home which is important for your child’s progress. If normal arrangements have to be altered please let us know to avoid any confusion or upset.
Getting to school
Walking to and from school is definitely the best option! There are lots of benefits: it’s healthier than travelling by car, it improves the safety around school and allows you to speak to your child about their learning. Alternatively, cycling safely (using a helmet) or on a scooter is also beneficial. Parking is limited around school so we ask that if you are travelling by car, you respect our neighbours and park carefully.
