Our School Day

The school day starts at 8:45am and finishes at 3:10-15pm.

Gates open at 8:45 and will close at 9am. Children will enter their class within this time frame and complete a morning challenge. 


Morning Playtime

At 10.30 am, children in Year 1 to Year 6 have a short break from their learning. 


Reception children do not have a formal break as they are involved in continuous provision throughout the day; this means that children can choose to carry out their learning either indoors or outdoors. Towards the end of the school year children will start to experience the more formal Key Stage 1 breaks.



Children in Nursery and Reception have their lunch between 11:25 and 1pm.

Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 have their lunch between 12:00 and 1:00 pm. 


Afternoon Playtime

Children in Key Stage 1 have a short break at 2:00 pm.


Drop off and Collection

At the beginning and end of the school day, parents should drop their child off at the appropriate gate. 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.
