The school is open each morning from 8am and children may be dropped off before the school day begins to enable parents to get to work. During this time games and activities are provided and academic support can be arranged with no additional charge where required.
The day commences with registration all together at 8.50 and a short, whole school assembly on Mondays and Wednesdays. A celebratory assembly is held on a Friday morning.
Each morning has 2 sessions where the more academic work is achieved when everyone is fresh and focused.
These are split by a 20 minute break, when children can go outdoors to the adventure playground, play on the astro or stay indoors and do jigsaws and games.
Currently pupils bring their own packed lunches and eat together in the lunch hall. We are able however to heat pre-prepared meals brought in by parents in our kitchen for those that do not like a packed lunch.
The afternoon is also made up of two sessions split by a 20 minute break. Many schools do not offer an afternoon break but we encourage our pupils to move about and have some fresh air where possible. Afternoons run between 1.05 and 15.50 and are often more practical. Once a week each class is taken out in the minibus for an adventure session. Art, cookery and DT are also typically an afternoon lesson.
Most children are collected at the end of the school day at 15.50.
After school clubs run until 16.50.
After-School-Care is available until 18.00 but there is a charge for this service.
