The School Day

KS1 and KS2

The school playground opens at 8.45am. Staff are on duty from this time, so we ask that children do not arrive before this, as they will not be supervised.


At 8.45am, the school gates are opened for children to make their way into school for the start of the day at 8.50am.


Morning break time starts at 10.10am. Children may bring a piece of fruit or vegetable sticks to eat during breaktime.


Lunch takes place in one sitting from Midday. All children eat in the main hall. When they are finished eating, they clear their table and enjoy playtime.


Afternoon playtime - Children in Years 1 and 2 have a 10-minute break each day. If children at Key Stage 2 have been kept indoors during the lunch break due to poor weather, teachers will provide a 10-minute activity break at a suitable point in their afternoon lessons.


The school day ends at 3.20pm. Children not collected by 3.30pm will be taken to the after-school club. Parents should collect from the after-school club entrance and pay for that session. This totals, in a typical week, 32.5 hours.


Early Years Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception)

Our Nursery day starts at 8.45am, with the morning session finishing at 11.45am and the afternoon session ending at 2.45pm. The Reception class day begins at 8.50am, finishing at 3.20pm.


Before and After School Care

Breakfast Club and Tea Club are managed by the school, opening at 7.45am and closing at 5.30pm, with entry via the FSU/Yr 1 yard. Children are taken to their respective classrooms by staff at 8.45am and in the afternoons children registered for Tea Club are collected from their classrooms or after school clubs. Breakfast and a light tea are provided.


Whether you need to book daily sessions or a one-off session we can cater for you. Simply contact Mrs Baker in the school office for information.


The cost is £4 for the first hour and £2 for every half hour after this.
