The School Day
The school day begins at 8.45 am when the doors open. Children should not arrive before this time unless they are going to breakfast club which runs from 8am until 8.45am. Parents in the Early Years should escort children into the unit and assist them in removing coats and signing in for the session. Parents in Key Stage 1 can also escort children into the unit and settle them in class before leaving. Parents in Key Stage 2 should leave children at their entrance unless they need to speak to a member of staff. This is to reduce congestion on the stairs at a busy time of the day. Registration begins at 8.55am and parents should ensure that they have left classrooms by this time to allow lessons to start promptly.
All children enjoy a mid morning break and they can enjoy a drink and a snack at this time. Water coolers are available throughout the school and fruit is on sale from the kitchen hatch. Children in the Early Years and Key Stage 1 receive a free fruit or vegetable snack as part of a government initiative.
Lunchtime begins at 11.45am for children in the Early Years and Key Stage 1. Children are taken to the school hall where they can collect their chosen meal from the hatch. Key Stage 2 lunchtime begins at 12pm once the younger children are all settled in the hall. Children then enjoy the many activities available on the playground until 1pm when they return to class.
The school day ends at 3.10pm when all children leave school through their designated door. Children in the Early Years and Key Stage 1 will be handed over to a known adult. Various after school clubs are available for children to attend, these vary depending upon the time of year.
