The School Day

We start promptly at 8.50a.m and the front gate will be locked at 8.45am. 

Two members of staff are on duty in the playground from 8.20a.m. and children may start arriving from that time.  Please do not drop them off before 8.20a.m. as the gate is locked and there will be no access to the school grounds.


It is very important for your child's feeling of belonging that (s)he should not be late into school.   In the event of lateness, children should report to the school office to be signed in by a parent/carer.


Lunchbreak is from 12.15 – 1.10pm for all year groups.


The children all have a twenty-minute break during the morning and may bring in a piece of fruit/healthy snack to eat at that time (no nuts please).  There is no afternoon break.


School ends at 3.15p.m.


School statutory opening hours: 37 hours and 5 minutes
