The School Day


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 25 hours; for Years 3 to 6 it is 26 hours 15 minutes.

Our school day begins promptly for all pupils at 8.45am. A senior member of staff is on duty on the playground from 8.35am. Parents are encouraged to bring younger children on to the playground whereas many of our older pupils (Year 5 and Year 6) come to school independently. The whistle is blown at 8.45am so that children can be in their classrooms and are registered ready for lessons 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.

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, see our Walking to and from School Policy under Travel Plan Documents 


Hot Meals


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.
