The School Day

The School Day

The school gates open at 8.20 and close at 8.50.  Children are welcome to go into their classrooms from 8.40 where they will be met by their class teacher.

There is a School Breakfast Club between 8.25 – 8.40am which is 40p per child, per day. Breakfast Club is held in the school hall. This is a drop in Breakfast Club, no booking required and the children will be offered:

  • Cereal
  • Toast
  • Water or Hot Chocolate 

Lunchtime and morning break times are staggered to allow all children more space on the playground.  Children in Year 5 and Year 6 have their lunch 12.15-1.15 and all other children have their lunch 12.00-1.00.  Children in Year R to Year 2 are provided with a piece of fruit or vegetable to eat at morning break.  Children in Years 3 to 6 may bring a healthy snack from home or they can buy a healthy snack from the tuck trolley for 30p.

The school day ends at 3.15 for children in Year R to Year 2 and at 3.20 for children in Year 3 to Year 6.

The school also benefits from on site childcare at  Olivers Lodge, which opens for breakfast from 7:30 to 08:50, and after school from 15:15 to 18:00. (See Olivers Lodge Website )
