The School Day / Week

Drop off / Pick Up

In line with government guidelines, the school is open for a compulsory 32.5 hours per week.  The school gates open at 8:45am.  Anyone arriving after the gates have closed should come in through the school office.  

At the end of the day, the children will be brought out to the school gate by a member of staff at 3:15pm (youngest first).

An Average School Day

Each day, the children will have the chance to engage in 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 into 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

As stipulated by the Summer '22 Education White Paper, the school is open 32.5 hours per week.  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 Friday.
