Our School Day
The school day starts at 8.45am and finishes at 3.15pm. Registration is from 8.45am to 8:55am.
At 10.40am until 10:55am, children have their morning break time to get some exercise.
Reception have break times which are quite flexible. Towards the end of the school year, they will join the other children in school to have the same break time.
Lunch time starts at 12:10 and goes on until 1:00pm. The children are called in to lunch at different times from the playground and then return to the playground when they have finished. Skippers and Admirals go down to lunch straight away.
In the afternoon the children have a brain break 3 times a week. They go outside, weather dependent, and join in with DPA (Daily Physical Activity). This usually happens mid-afternoon but is flexible.
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 close relationship between home and school – we want to have good links with all parents. If normal arrangements have to be altered (eg you are delayed or another person is collecting your child), please let us know. This avoids any confusion or upset.
Getting to school
To get to and from school, walking is definitely the best option! There are lots of benefits: it’s healthier than travelling by car, it improves the safety of pedestrians and road-users, and it respects nearby residents and parking regulations. Alternatively, we have bike-racks. If you do need to travel by car, please park wisely.
