The School Day

Before School

The playground is supervised to allow children to arrive from 08.40 every morning. If arriving by car, parents are encouraged to drop their children and leave between 08.40  and 08.50. This is to free up the limited number of parking spaces for those arriving later. We also ask that, in the interest of safety, no cars a brought across the small bridge near the school entrance during the drop off and pick up periods of the day.


The bell rings at 09.00 to signal the start of the school day and the children then line up in their classes and file into the building.


Collective Worship (Assembly)

There is a whole school assembly every day which, in accordance with the legal requirements, are broadly of a Christian character.

Monday to Thursday - 09.15 - 09.30

Friday- 15.00- 15.25


The morning session  is split by a breaktime.


Lunch break for Year R, 1 and 2 begins at 12.00 and for Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 at 12.15.

The school day finishes at 3.30. All children leave school via the side gate onto the front playground from where they can be collected. Children in Years R 1 and 2 are supervised by a member of staff and only allowed through the side gate when the adult responsible for them has been identified. Older children are prohibited from leaving the school site at the end of the day unaccompanied unless this has been agreed by prior arrangement with the class teacher.
