The School Day

Teachers welcome children at the classroom doors at 8.40am with registration at 8.50am.  This part of the day is spent practising key skills and responding to marking.  Morning lessons begin after this.  We hold a daily assembly which may be whole school, year group or class based.

The children have a morning break with lower key stage (Year 3 & Year 4) at 10.15am and upper key stage (Year 5 & Year 6) at 10.30am.  A fruit snack is available to be purchased.

Lessons continue after morning break on the run-up to lunchtime.  Lower key stage lunch is 12 noon to 1.00pm and upper key stage lunch is 12.20pm to 1.20pm.  During this time, the children eat in the school hall and the rest of the time is playtime.

Children can either eat a hot school dinner provided by HC3S or bring a packed lunch. School meals are cooked on the premises and the cost is £3.00 per meal.

We do encourage all parents to check their entitlement to free school meals as additional funding is available. Please contact the school office if you would like more information.

If having a packed lunch, we ask that you ensure the contents of your child’s lunch box are in line with our healthy eating policy. As we have some children with severe allergies, nothing must contain nuts. Fizzy drinks, chocolate and sweets are also not allowed.

Afternoon lessons continue until the end of the school day at 3.20pm: Children in Year 3 and 4 are collected from the classroom doors and Year 5 and Year 6 are collected from the playground (children in Year 6 are permitted to walk home).
