OUR SCHOOL DAY
A member of staff is on duty each morning in the playground from 8.45am. The school bell is rung at 8.55am and registration is then taken until 9.00am. Our school day ends at 3.30pm. We have regular collective worship, as well as ‘awards’ and community and world news assemblies.
We have a morning break for all children from 10.30am to 10.50am.
Our lunchtime starts at 12pm and ends at 1pm.
Younger children have an afternoon playtime every day.
Older children have an afternoon playtime when the curriculum allows.
Drop off and collection
At the beginning and end of the school day, parents are welcome to come into the playground (or the school hall during bad weather). This helps us to establish a close relationship between home and school – our aim is to promote good links with all parents. If usual arrangements have to be altered (e.g. you will be late or another person will be collecting your child) please let us know in advance as this avoids confusion or upset.
Getting to school
Children are encouraged to walk, cycle or scoot to school. The school has bike racks available for storage during the school day. Parents bringing their children to school by car are asked to park on School Lane rather than dropping their children off at the school gates. There is an unwritten rule that School Lane operates as a one-way system during morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up times and we kindly ask parents to respect this.
