School Day Timings

Our School Day

The school day starts at 8.50am and finishes at 3.15pm (3.10pm for Foundation Stage). Classroom doors are open from 8.45am and registration is taken at 8.50am.  If you arrive at school after registration, please take your child into school via the office, where you will need to sign them in.


Morning playtimes

All children in KS1 and KS2 have a morning break from 10.40 – 10.55am.



Lunchtime is from 12-1pm.


Reception children have break times which are quite flexible.


Drop-off and collection

At the beginning and end of the school day, parents are encouraged into the playground. This helps to build up a close relationship between home and school – we want to have good links with all parents. If normal arrangements have to be altered (e.g. you are delayed or another person is collecting your child) please let us know. This avoids any confusion or upset.


Getting to school

To get to and from school, walking is definitely the best option! There are lots of benefits: it’s healthier than travelling by car, it improves the safety of pedestrians and road-users, and it respects nearby residents and parking regulations. If you do need to travel by car, please park wisely. Children are welcome to arrive at school by bicycle or scooter, we have bike racks at the rear of the school but for reasons of safety these must not be ridden on the school premises.  Children and parents should use the playground gate to enter the school premises.  The main school gate is for vehicle access and staff only.
