The School Day

We offer wraparound childcare for all our pupils from 7.30am until 6.15pm. 


Children can access Breakfast Club from 7.30pm where they are offered a range of foods.  They are supervised until the 8.40am when they move to their classrooms. 


School is open from 8.40am and the doors close at 8.50am in order for learning to start.  Breaktime for all children is 10.30am-10.45am except for children in EYFS who access outdoor learning as part if their continuous provision.  


Due to the size of the school, children have a staggered lunch hour as described below:

  • EYFS   11.45am-12.45pm
  • KS1     12.00pm -1.00pm
  • Y3/4   12.15pm-1.15pm
  • Y5/6   12.30pm-1.30pm 


The school day finishes for EYFS at 3.10pm, at 3.15pm for KS1 and at 3:20 for KS2 Parents collect from the year group/classroom doors with teachers handing children to a familiar adult.  The total weekly school hours for each phase is as follows:

  • EYFS 32.5 hours
  • KS1   32  hours and 55 minutes
  • KS2   33 hours  and 20 minutes


The school also offers after school club childcare where children can access a range of activities and are offered a snack.  As is the case for breakfast club, parents are charged for this provision.
