The School Day

The school day runs from 8.45 am to 3.15 pm


To provide additional covid safety, we have implemented a one-way system and staggered our start and finish times for classes.


Classroom doors open at 8.40 am for Years 2 and 6 and close at 8.45 am.

Classroom doors open at 8.45 am for Years 1, 4 and 5 and close at 8.50 am.

Classroom doors open at 8.50 am for Year 3 and Reception and close at 8.55 am

Any child arriving after their allocated class time is to be brought to the school office to be marked in to school as classroom registration will be closed at this point.


The school day finishes at 3.05 pm for Years 2 and 6.

The school day finishes at 3.10 pm for Years 1, 4 and 5

The school day finishes at 3.15 pm for Year 3 and Reception.


All year groups and children will leave via their classroom doors and exit as stated in the school policy.


The children have staggered, allocated morning play time and lunch time play.

At lunch time, the youngest children go in to the hall to eat, they are well supervised and encouraged to eat their meals. The older children currently eat in their classrooms and then go out to play. A range of playtime activities are provided and the adults facilitate these to include all children.


Additional breaks and play activities are organised by individual teachers to suit their class.

Please note the school grounds/playgrounds are not supervised before and after school by staff. Children should be under the supervision of parents and all school rules for behaviour remain in place for health and safety reasons.
