Our School Day
The school day starts at 8.40am and finishes at 3.00pm. Registration is from 8.45am to 8.55am.
The children have a break from 10.40am – 10.55am.
At the start of the school year Reception have break times which are quite flexible. During the autumn term, they will join children in Key Stage 1 to have breaks at set times.
Children in Reception have their lunch at 12.00pm and their break ends at 1.00pm. Some children in Y1 have lunch at 12.00 and the rest join Y2 for break at 12.00pm followed by lunch at 12.30pm. Lunchtimes for all end at 1.00pm.
All children have an afternoon playtime.
Drop-off and collection
At the beginning and end of the school day, parents are encouraged into the playground at 8.40am when the gate is unlocked. We are keen to build up a close relationship between home and school and there will always be an adult on the door to take messages in the morning. Teachers are not available at the start of school but will be happy to give you a call during the day if you have an urgent matter or will speak to you at the end of the school day. If normal arrangements have to be altered (eg you are delayed or another person is collecting your child), please let us know. This avoids any confusion or upset.
Getting to school
To get to and from school, walking is definitely the best option! There are lots of benefits: it’s healthier than travelling by car, it improves the safety of pedestrians and road-users, and it respects nearby residents and parking regulations. Alternatively, we have a bike/scooter rack. If you do need to travel by car, please park wisely and considerately. We have permission from the The Plough and the Working Men's Club to use their car parks at the start and end of the school day. Please ask the office for a permit.
