Our School Day

Due to COVID-19 and the government guidance on opening school safely, we have made some temporary alterations to our normal school day. Information on these changes can be found here:

Our 'Normal' School Day

8.45 – Doors open The infant children all enter through the same door, at the back of the school, next to the Year 2 classroom. An adult mans the entrance and a group of older pupils are also on hand to help children get organised with bags and coats. The Junior children also enter at the back of the school, through the boys’ or girls’ cloakrooms. These doors are also manned by a member of staff. In order to keep our children safe, we ask that adults don’t come into school this way. If you wish to speak to a member of staff, just come along to the main office.


8.45-9.00 – Registration Children all have morning registration activities focussing on developing their maths skills, so it is important that children arrive promptly.


9.00 – 10.00 – Lesson one


10.00-10.15 – Assembly


10.15-10.30 – Break time We have an infant and junior playground with a variety of equipment to play with. There are three members of staff on duty on each playground. Older children act as ‘playground pals’ on the infant playground.


10.30-11.45/12.00 – Lesson Two


11.45/12.00 – 12.45/1.00 – Lunch is staggered, with some classes breaking at 11.45 and others finishing at 12.00.


1.00– 3.25/3.30 – Afternoon session There isn’t a timetabled break in the afternoon. Instead, teachers will give their class a break when appropriate. The Reception class finishes at 3.25. Children up to Year 4 all exit via their classroom fire doors. Years 5 and 6 exit via the junior cloakrooms. We have a comprehensive handover policy to keep children safe which can be viewed here.
