The School Day

The school day starts at 8:45am each morning.

All children are expected to be in class at 8:45am.

Children from EYFS are taken to class by their parents/carers and children from Year 2 – Year 6 are to make their own way up to the classroom. We ask that children are on time as they begin each day responding to teacher’s marking from the day before.

We ask that children bring in their P.E kit on a Monday morning, and take this home on a Friday. PE days may differ on occasion due to weekly timetables, however we do our upmost to ensure it is on the same day/time to keep a regular routine.

Lunch time for the school are listed below. Please note these are generally averages as some children may start earlier or finish later than the stated times:

Nursery  11:30am
Reception 12:00pm
Year 1 12:10pm
Year 2- Year 6  12:15-1:00pm


Collection for all children in EYFS is at 3:20pm. Children are to be collected from their classroom.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Year 1 : children are collected by their parents/carers from the classroom at 3:25pm
Years 2-6 : teachers will bring their classes down to the playground at 3:30pm.

Please note: If parents are running late we ask that you call ahead to advise the office so the staff are able to prepare and set up activities for those children. We also request that if your child is being collected by someone other than yourself, please call in and advise the office – as children will not be released without consent from the parent/carer.
