The School Day

Our school day starts at 8.30 when the children are welcomed into their classrooms and early morning work starts.

The register is taken and sent to the school office at 8.55. After that time children should be signed in at the office.

We have daily assemblies at 10:00 including our Friday Celebration Assembly at 9:00. 

Morning break time is 10.15-10.30.
As part of the Government’s Fruit & Vegetable Scheme, all EYFS & KS1 children receive a piece of fruit or raw vegetable every morning. KS2 children are able to bring a small healthy snack from home but no sweets or chocolate please.

Lunchtime for all children starts at 12:00 with EYs and KS1 welcomed in the hall first and the KS2 children welcomed in the hall from 12:15. 
The children have a cooked school dinner or a packed lunch in the hall or may choose to eat outside if the weather permits. 


All KS1 children are entitled to a free school meal under the Government’s Universal KS1 Free School Meal programme; these meals still need to be ordered as outlined above. For children in Years 3-6, parents or guardians certain benefits may apply for free school meals.


Afternoon lessons start at 13:00 for all children with the differing finish times to the school day.

Early Years children finish at 15:00. (32hrs 30 mins a week)

KS1 children finish at 15:05. (32 hrs 55 mins a week)
