The School Day

Morning Session 8.50am to 12.00pm
Afternoon Session 12:50pm to 3.10pm

From 8:30 we have a 'wake up, shake up' programme on the playground to enable the pupils (and parents) to have an active, fun start to their day. 

The school day starts at 8.50am. However, the children may arrive at school from 8.40am and go straight into the classroom. The children come into school via two main doors, in EYFS and KS1, through the door to the KS1 corridor and in KS2, through the door into the Y3/4 corridor at the top of the steps in the playground. 

Unless your child is attending an after school club they will leave via their classroom’s outside door at 3.10pm. Children in Reception and Classes 1 and 2 will not be allowed to leave until we have seen you. Children in the junior classes are free to exit the building to find the person collecting them unless you tell us otherwise.

Children in every class will have a morning break for fifteen minutes and an afternoon break for ten minutes, in addition to their thirty-minute lunch play.  

We offer a breakfast club from 7.40am and an after school club (Oscars) until 5.30pm. A charge applies for both these options.  Please visit our Clubs & Activities page.
