The School Day

The start of the day:

School opens for Early Birds at 8.00am. The gates open to other pupils at 8.45am to give families and children a chance to chat to each other and staff before the bell is rung at 8.50am.

The morning:

Children go into class and carry out early work activities until 9am when the register is taken. Lessons start at 9.00am until 10.20 when an outside break time takes place.

Morning break:

The children enjoy a wide range of toys and equipment and can use our wonderful field all year round by having their wellington boots in school.

Lessons continue from 10.40am until 12pm when our Early Years and Infant class come together for lunch in the hall.


All of our children enjoy a hot lunch made on site and sit together in places of their choice to enjoy social interaction over a delicious meal.  The Junior class join the younger children at 12.15pm.  Children are encouraged to try new foods and eat with their cutlery correctly.  They pour water for each other and often enjoy a second helping of the food on offer.  Children who show super manners or appreciation of the food with a clean plate, may be chosen to sit on our special table the next day.  Once the children have eaten, they enjoy our outside space once again until the bell is rung at 1.15pm.

The afternoon:

Lessons continue including a break to complete our daily mile until 2.50pm when we come together for an assembly before either going home or to a club at 3.15pm.

The end of the day:

At the end of the day, the gate is opened again and parents and carers collect their children from the classroom door.  This offers a lovely opportunity for teachers and parents to make contact if needed and for children to share their learning in their classroom if they would like to.

After school clubs continue until 4.15pm.

Our Night Owls wrap around care ends at 5.15pm.
