The School Day

The school gates are open from 8:30am each morning and registration is at 8:50am. We ask that all children are through the gate by 8:48am and the staff are availble to welcome the children into classrooms from 8:40am onwards. If a pupil arrives after the gates are locked again at 8:48am, they must report to the school office to sign in. 

The children have a morning break at 10:35am. There are always at least 3 members of staff on duty. Free fruit is available for all Foundation and Key Stage 1 pupils and older pupils are allowed to bring in a healthy snack for breaktimes. We ask that foods containing nuts are not brought into school in order to protect those with allergies.

Due to our increasing numbers and the popularity of  our school lunches, we have a staggered lunchtime: Foundation and Key Stage 1 pupils have lunch from 11:50am-12:50pm and older pupils from 12:25pm-1:25pm. The school employs several lunchtime supervisors to ensure that children have safe and happy lunchtimes. We also have a team of "Helping Hands" pupils who are trained to support other children where appropriate.

The school gates reopen at 3:05pm, ready for school to finish at 3:15pm. The staff hand over the children to parents at 3:15pm from the classrooms. Please ensure that the school is advised if anyone different is collecting your child.

After school clubs run on most days and children are collected from the hall via the Foundation Stage playground.
