The School Day starts at 8.50am and finishes at 3.15pm

- Inside quiet play
- Space to invent their own games
Reception class children have break times which are flexible and responsive to the chidren’s needs.
12.00 noon – Children in Reception have their lunch and their break ends at 1.00pm
12.30pm – Children in Year 1, Year 3 and Year 5 have their lunch.
1.00pm – Children in Year 2, Year 4 and Year 6 have their lunch
1.30pm – Lunchtime and breaktime ends
Younger children also enjoy an afternoon playtime.
Drop Off and Collection
At the begining and end of the school day, parent/carers are encouraged into the playground to drop off or collect their children. This helps to build closer relationships between home and school, as we want to have good links with all parents/carers.
If normal arrangements have to be altered (e.g. if you are delayed or another person is collecting your child), please let us know so that we can eliminate any confusion or upset.
Getting to School
To get to and from school, walking is definitely the best option! There are lots of benefits: it’s healthier than travelling by car, it improves the safety of pedestrians and road users, and it respects the nearby resisdents and parking regulations.
Alternatively, we have bike racks and scooter park. Please ensure that your child dismounts as they enter the school gate and do not mount until they have left the school grounds.
