The school day starts at 8.45am and finishes at 3.15pm. Registration is from 8.45am to 9.00am where the children will undertake Early Bird work.

Morning Playtimes

Year 3 and 4 have their playtime at 10.30am. All children in KS1 and Year 5 and 6 have a morning playtime at 10:45am. All morning playtimes last for 15 minutes. Children in Reception, Y1 and Y2 have a separate playground to children in Y3 through to Y6.


Lunchtimes are slightly staggered. RP and Reception go for lunch at 11.45 am. KS1 have their lunch from 12 until 1pm. Year 3 have lunch at 12:10 until 1:00 pm, whilst our Years 4, 5 and 6 have lunch from 12.15 to 1.00pm.. Children eat their actual lunch at staggered times and play outside on their respective playgrounds for the rest of the time.

Afternoon Playtimes: 

An afternoon playtime will be taken in Reception and Key Stage 1 at the discretion of staff, on split playgrounds.


We have two whole school assemblies each week – our Values Assembly on a Monday afternoon at 2.30pm and our Celebration Assembly every Friday, again at 2:30pm. If your child has received Star of the Week for that week, we will invite you on Thursday evening via text to join us.

There may be the odd extra assembly on a Thursday morning when we welcome visitors into school or if there is a special occasion coming up.

Drop-off and Collection

At the beginning and end of the school day, parents are encouraged into the playground, to stand with their children. This helps build a close relationship between home and school – we would like to foster good links with all parents. If normal arrangements are to change, (for example you are delayed or another person is collecting your child), please let the office know before collection time. This avoids any confusion or upset for your child.

Breakfast Club

Breakfast club offers a quality start to the day. The children can access the Computing Room; undertake a gym session; do art and craft activities or do their homework. We are proud to be partners with Magic breakfast; offering the very best in Kellogg’s cereals; Quaker Oats Porridge; Tropicana Fresh Fruit Juice and Bagels from Bagel Nash All this will be provided for £1.00 per child per day. All children are entitled to attend Breakfast Club, which starts at 8.00am. Children will be supervised until they are taken to class at 8.45am.

Getting to school

Walking is definitely the best option, when considering how to get to and from school. There are lots of benefits: it’s healthier than travelling by car, it improves the safety of pedestrians and road-users, it respects nearby residents and parking regulations and it helps us to protect our environment. Alternatively, we have bike-racks, which the children can use. Again, if you are going to be late for school, or if your child is unable to attend for any reason, we ask that you contact the office as soon as possible.
