School Procedures and Times of the School Day
Click here to find details of opening and closing times.
All children have a morning break of 15 minutes and an afternoon break of 10 minutes.
Start of the day
We expect children to arrive at school on time so they can have a calm and settled start to their day. Children are able to come into their classroom from 8.45 onwards. Registration closes at 9.00. Children come into school through the door nearest to their classroom and are expected to hang up their coats, put their book bags away and if they bring a packed lunch, put lunchboxes away.
Younger children must be accompanied to school by an adult who waits with them until they enter the classroom.
Playtimes and dinnertimes
Children are escorted to and from the playground by a teacher. Children are always supervised on the playground by teachers and/or lunchtime supervisors. There is a rota of activities to ensure that all classes have fair access to playtime equipment. We have a number of sports coaches who support play activities at lunchtimes.
End of the day
Children in Years 3-6 are escorted by their teachers to the nearest exit at the end of the day. Teachers are available for informal discussion or enquiries on each day after school.
Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are kept in their classrooms until a parent or carer has arrived and made themselves known to teaching or support staff.
It is very important that a known adult collects your child at the end of the school day. Children in Year 6 can make their own way home with written consent from parents. We do not release children to older siblings unless we have permission from parents. Please inform the school office if there are any changes to your arrangements.
Every week we hold celebration assemblies for KS1 and KS2 on Friday afternoon. Family members are very welcome to join us in celebrating our pupils’ achievements.
Phase assemblies take place at the following times: KS1 Thursday afternoon, KS2 Wednesday afternoon.
We also hold class assemblies where children celebrate their learning and present a showcase of their work. We will give you plenty of notice if your child’s class is presenting a class assembly, and family members are very welcome.
