School Day


Our school day is organised to provide maximum time for learning across a balanced curriculum.

During uncertain times, we are still operating a staggered start for the children.

The school day begins at 8.40am for pupils in Nursery, Reception, Y1 and Y2, and finishes at 3.20pm.

The school day begins at 8.50am for pupils in Y3, Y4, Y5 and Y6, and finishes at 3.30pm.

Children may arrive from 7.30am for Breakfast Club, and take part in early morning activities. The daily cost for Breakfast Club is £2.50.

Each day starts promptly to maximise learning, so being on time is paramount.

The children all have a 25 minute morning break, and have one hour at lunchtime to play and to eat their meal.

Play time and lunchtime staff are trained to support children’s play.  There are a wide range of activities for children to enjoy, such as skipping, imaginative play, reading, drawing and various sports.

During lesson time, some subjects such as Maths, Science, PE  and English (Reading, Writing, spelling and grammar, and handwriting) are taught separately. Other subjects -Geography, History, Art, Design Technology and Computing may be taught separately or taught during Topic sessions. Pupils from Y1-Y6 learn Spanish weekly.

The school day finishes at 3.20pm/3.30pm on Monday - Thursday, and at 2.00pm/2.15pm every Friday.

There are a wide range of extended day activities that continue daily until 6pm (5pm on Fridays).
