The School Day / Week

Drop off / Pick Up

The school gates open at 8:45am and close at 8:55am.  Anyone arriving after that time should come in through the school office.  Our teachers make various warm up activities available form 8:45am to help prepare the children for the school day and maximise their time with us, making sure they are ready and raring to go once the registers are complete and lessons start at 9:00am.

At the end of the day, the children will be brought out to the school gate by a member of staff between 3:05 and 3:10pm (youngest first).

An Average School Day

Each day the children will have the chance to engage with a broad and balanced curriculum, including a daily commitment to reading and Maths.  The children have a morning break of 20 minutes and a lunch hour that is broken up in to time for eating (20-30mins) and time for play (30-40mins) depending on how quickly they eat.  Our teachers may also decide that a short afternoon break is necessary to refresh their brains, depending on the nature of their afternoon activities.  This, combined with our PE curriculum and Forest School provision, encourages a healthy and active lifestyle for our pupils that celebrates the outdoors.

Length of the School Week

Each school day, the school is currently 6 hours and 25 minutes long.  This will likely be extended by a further 5 minutes per day from September 2023 in order to reach the 32.5 hour school week (as stipulated by the Summer '22 Education White Paper).  We are also open for breakfast club from 8:15 - 8:45am and have after school clubs running from 3:15 - 4:15pm Monday to Thursday.
