School Day

Start of the school day:


The school gates will be open between 8.40am and 9am. If your child is in Morning Nursery, your child will be expected to be at school for 8.40am promptly. For all other year groups, you should arrive at school between 8.40am and 9am. A member of staff will be on duty at this time, when the breakfast café opens.School cannot be responsible for children before this time. Children should enter by the correct door from the playground. Parents should not come into school with children but remain outside. Playground doors will then be locked; parents and late children should then use the front door of the school. It is hoped every effort will be made for children to be at school ‘on time’, as the first twenty minutes is a very important part of the day.

Breaktimes: There is a morning break and a lunch break scheduled for each class at different times during the school day. During the morning break, all children will be offered a piece of fruit to eat each day.  Children should bring a water bottle into school each day; this should be in a plastic bottle and should be clearly labelled with their name.  This should be fruit juice, water or a milk flavoured drink (no fizzy drinks please).

Alternatively you are able to buy school milk which costs £12 each term - excellent value and much healthier. During warm weather the milk is stored in cool boxes to ensure it is cool to drink. Children who are entitled to free school meals will receive free milk each day, as will children under 5 (up to and including the term in which they are 5).

End of the school day:

All children will leave by the doors on the playground where they can be collected. Parents and older children should not enter school but wait on the playground where children will be dismissed.

Catch up lessons:

Catch up lessons will be every Tuesday and Wednesday for all children in Reception, KS1 and KS2.

Here are the drop off and collection times for year groups:
