The school day starts at 8:45am prompt. It is important that children start the day well and their morning routine starts the moment they come into school. The school is open to parents and children from 8:40am. Children remain the responsibility of the parents/carers until the whistle blows at 8:45am.
The DFE has stated from September 2022 that all primary schools' school weeks need to be at least 32.5 hours therefore we are altering our starting and finishing times for all classes from September to make it a more cohesive start to the day.
Starting times: 8:45 am
Finishing times: 3:15 pm
In the morning gates will open at 8:40 am for children to be dropped off at their classes and will be closed promptly at 8:45 am for school to start. Any child arriving after this time needs to go to the School Office and sign in the late book. In the afternoon gates will open at 3.10 pm for children to be collected at 3:15 pm from their classes. Please ensure that you drop off and pick up promptly from their class exits.
KS2 children should continue to be encouraged to come into the school site in the mornings by themselves to minimise people accessing the site.
If you have an urgent message please go to the school office window.
Children will come in and register at 8:45am. They will then complete a morning task before going to Collective Worship for 9am. During the morning, the children will be taught Maths and English. In the afternoons they will be taught Religious Education, Science, History, Geography, Art, Design Technology, Music, Computing, Personal, Social, Health Education and French (KS2 only). The children will also practice their mental arithmetic, handwriting and spellings throughout the week.
