School Day - Times

The school Day

For FS2 - Y6

8.45 a.m.  to 3.15p.m.

The gate will open at 8.30a.m., the doors open at 8.40 a.m. In order to give the children ample time to be

in their classrooms ready to start the day's learning at 8.45 a.m. You may wish to speak briefly to a teacher

to book a time to chat in more detail later. If you wish to discuss an issue more urgently please report to the

general office and you will be able to speak to either the Headteacher, Ms Gray or the Deputy Headteacher,

Ms Elliott.

We run a free Breakfast Club, sponsored by Greggs, which starts at 8.00am and finsihed serving breakfast at

8.25am. All children from F2 upwards are able to come with or without an accompanying adult: we do ask that

F1 (Nursery) children have someone who stays with them.This club is supported by volunteers, which we are

very grateful for. If you would like to help out at our Breakfst club, please see ourLearning Mentor, Mrs Scully.


Children outside of our Nursery will attend school for 32.5 hours during a typical week. 


Morning playtimes

All children get a morning break.



Children in Reception and Y1 have lunch at 11.30, Y2 and KS2 have lunch at 12.00. Lunchtime lasts for 1 hour. 

We end the day at 3.15pm. EYFS children  are collected from their classrooms via the EYFS

entrance. The rest of the school are collected from the main school playground. For safety reasons, we do not

open the school gates until the bell has gone at 3.15pm.

Please take the opportunity to come and ask  your child's class teacher how your chilld's day has gone when

you collect him/her and have a chat with Ms Gray and Mr Goodhand. 


Drop-off and collection

At the 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.

We will not let your child leave school without verbal or written agreement with you beforehand.


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. If you do need to travel by car, please park wisely avoiding the double yellow lines. The

area just outside school is very busy and we want to keep all pur children safe as they arrive and leave school.
