The School Day

The school day is organised as follows:


The children arrive between 8.40am and 8.50am and may go straight to their classrooms.


Please note: children arriving after 8.55am will be marked as 'L' - (late) in the register.  If pupils arrive after 9.00am they will be marked as 'U' (late after registers close) in the register.  This is classed as unauthorised absence.

The school day is 6 hours 30 minutes, which is a total of 32.5 hours over the week.


Parents are reminded that the children are their responsibility until the start of the school day and from dismissal in the afternoon.


Both Infants and Juniors have a morning break from 10.40 – 10.55 am. The children may bring a healthy snack such as fruit or cheese to eat at this break. Please do not send breadsticks and cheese dips, cereal bars, yoghurt tubes or similar. Children should not bring sweets into school (except for special occasions such as birthdays and these must be wrapped and labelled and not contain nuts). 


Children may bring a healthy packed lunch or have a school meal. Further information can be found here

During the lunch break the children are looked after by our Learning Support Assistants in the hall and in the playground.


There is a 15 minute break in the afternoon for Infants. During this break they have a piece of fruit or vegetable provided by a NHS initiative.


WATER IN SCHOOL – We have an initiative allowing the children constant access to drinking water throughout the day.
