Our School Day

Our school day starts at 9:00am and finishes at 3:20pm (EY) 3:25pm (KS1) and 3:30pm (KS2). Please see below for a breakdown of our school day:

Morning Session

EYFS / KS1 9.00 a.m to 12.00 p.m.

KS2 9:00 a.m to 12:10p.m.

Lunch Time

EYFS / KS1 12.00 p.m. to 1.10p.m.

KS2 12:10 p.m. to 1:10 p.m.

Afternoon Session

EYFS 1:10 p.m. to 3:20 p.m. 

KS1 1:10 p.m. to 3:25 p.m.

KS2 1:10 p.m to 3:30 p.m.

There are break times of 15 minutes mid-morning and mid-afternoon.

Children should arrive at school no earlier than 8.45 a.m., as the school cannot be responsible for their welfare before this time.

Lunch time for EYFS and KS1 is 12:00pm and 12:10pm for KS2. The majority of children elect to stay at school during the dinner time.  Children can either bring their own lunch, or have a school meal.  If children bring their own lunch, it should be in a proper container e.g. sandwich box.  Please, for safety reasons, do not include hot drinks, glass containers or fizzy drinks.

School meals are served on a cash cafeteria system.  The system relies on parents paying in advance.  This is very closely supervised by a team of mid-day assistants, who ensure that children select items to create a balanced diet.

We ask all parents who come to school, not to use the limited school car park, or turn in the gateway. Apart from endangering the pupils’ safety, vehicles, other than those used by employees at the school, are unlikely to be covered by their insurance.  It is also worth noting that no one should park on the yellow zig-zag markings outside the school gates.

We impress on the children to use only the small side gate and not to use the main gate for obvious safety reasons.
