The School Day / Week
Drop off / Pick Up
In line with government guidelines, the school is open 32.5 hours per week. 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 3:10 and 3:15pm (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.
