Our School Day

Our School Day



The school day starts at 8.50am and finishes at 3.15pm.  Registration is from 8.50am to 9.00am.


Morning playtimes

Children have a morning break from 10.45 – 11.00.




Children in Reception have lunch between 11.30 and 12.30. Children in years 1-6 begin their break at 12pm and end at 1pm.




Afternoon playtimes

Younger children have an afternoon playtime.

Reception have break times which are quite flexible.




Drop-off and collection

At the beginning and end of the school day, parents are encouraged into the playground. This helps to build up a close relationship between home and school – we want to have good links with all parents.  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.

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 bike-racks.
