The School Day and Session Times
The school day is organised into a morning session and an afternoon session. All pupils have a morning break and pupils up to and including Year 2 have an afternoon break. During the normal school week the time spent on teaching in Reception to Year 2 is 21 hours 20 minutes; for Years 3 to 6 it is 23 hours 45 minutes.
Our school day begins promptly for all pupils at 8.55 am. A senior member of staff is on duty on the playground from 8.45 am. Parents are encouraged to bring younger children on to the playground whereas many of our older pupils come to school independently. The bell rings at 8.55 am so that children can be in their classrooms ready for school to start at 9.00am. When all parents and carers have left the playground the gates are locked. Latecomers must use the main entrance and report to the school office.
|EYFS and Years 1 & 2 (KS1)||Years 3 to 6 (KS2)|
|8.55am - 12pm||8.55am - 12.30pm|
|1.00pm - 3.20pm||1.30pm - 3.25pm|
At the end of the school day teachers of Reception and Key Stage 1 children bring them to their outside door to meet their parent or carer. Key Stage 2 children meet their parent/carer in the playground. Older children may walk home alone or meet parents at an agreed meeting point as long as we have received this request in writing.
Children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 are entitled to have a school lunch free of charge. This will be explained to parents when their child joins the school. Meals are provided by Innovate and meals are pre-ordered using the Innovate system.
