The School Day

The School Day



In light of the Government's change of school hours to 32.5 hours a week, from 7th June 2022 our school day will start at 8.45 am.  Children can arrive at school any time from 8.30 am when the blue gates in Crawford Road will be opened.  Gates close promptly at 8.45 am when all children should be in class for registration and first lesson.  Any child arriving after the gates close should enter via the main entrance and check-in with the electronic system in the reception area.  Arrivals via the front entrance will be considered as late.


Morning break

This takes place at 10.30 am.  All KS1 children are offered a piece of fruit or vegetable.  Milk is optional and can be ordered and paid for through  CoolMilk.   KS2 children can bring their own healthy snack.



Lunch times are staggered to avoid overcrowding in the dinner hall.  KS1 break at 12.00 until 1.00 pm.  KS2 from 12.30 to 1.30 pm.


Afternoon break

KS1 have a short afternoon break at  around 2.30 pm.  KS2 do not have an afternoon break.


End of the school day

KS1 children are dismissed at 3.10 pm into the infant playground.  Parents can enter the playground via the  blue gates in Crawford Road.

KS2 children are dismissed at 3.15 pm in the same place.
