Our School Day


School Hours

The school day runs from 8.45 am - 3.15pm . This meets the expectation that state-funded mainstream schools should deliver a school week of at least 32.5 hours .

Breakfast Club

Start of the School Day

Morning Break time

Children in Reception have free flow access to the outdoor learning environment throughout the day from 9.30 am so they do not have a specific break time.

Children in Key stage 1 have a 15 minute break from 10-30 a.m -10.45 a.m and breaktime for Key Stage 2 pupils is 10.50 a.m to 11.05 a.m

Lunch time

Reception, Year 1 and Year 2

Our youngest  children go to lunch at 11.45 am in the studio before playing outside once they have finished eating. Y1 children have lunch in the school hall at 11.45 am. Y2 children have lunch at 12 noon in the hall.

Children who have packed lunches eat their lunch with the children who eat hot meals. 

All pupils in YR, Y1 and Y2 are entitled to free school meals. 

Years 3 to 6: 

Children who eat packed lunches eat in their classrooms at 12.15 

Children who eat hot school meals are taken to the school hall to eat their lunch.

Children may bring a packed lunch from home or have a hot school meal provided by Chartwells www.mealselector.co.uk.  The school has a kitchen which steam heats Chartwell's healthy meals.  These must be ordered in advance and are paid for online.  Please check Chartwell's website for details.

Free school meals are provided for all those children who are eligible.

We now receive additional funding for children who claim their free school meals, whether or not they actually take up the offer.  This additional funding is called Pupil Premium and we are required to spend it in the best way possible to ensure that those eligible are given extra assistance in school.  It is therefore really important that as many eligible children as possible claim.  The office staff can answer any questions you may have about this, in confidence.

When planning your child's packed lunch, please minimise the packaging by using reusable boxes. All rubbish will be sent home in your child's lunchbox along with anything that is uneaten.

Further information about lunchtime can be found on the 'meals' page.

The end of the day

The school day finishes for all children at 3.15pm. Children in Reception, Years 1 and 2 are collected from their classrooms.

Years 3 and 4 are collected from outside their classrooms.

Childen in Y5 and Y6 are collected from the front of the school or walk home by themselves with permission from their parents. 

After School Clubs

Our teachers as well as some outside providers run a fantastic variety of extra-curricular clubs for Years 1 to 6, which change from term to term.  The list is circulated at the end of the previous term and forms should be submitted to the office as soon as possible. There is a charge of £1 per week for clubs run by teachers and differing prices for clubs run by external organisations. 

Collection after clubs:  children must be collected at 4 pm from the first doorway in the playground, unless otherwise specified.

Child Care 

After school childcare is provided from 3.15 pm until 5.30pm by the Child Care Club

Travelling to School

We would love everyone to travel to school under their own steam – be that on foot, by scooter or by bicycle.  It is healthy, keeps pollution down and the roads safer by reducing traffic outside the school gates. Please make sure that your child wears a helmet if they are riding to school. Bike and scooter racks are available near the front entrance.

We appreciate that it is not possible for everyone to walk to school and that some parents and carers need to drive their children to school.  Please park wisely and with consideration to our neighbours.  Please also park legally:  the zig zag lines are there to protect the children.
