School Day

School Day

Our school day begins at 8.55am when your class adults will collect you from the gate and finishes at 3.15pm when the children are returned to the gates. 

Collective worship begins at 10am. On Monday, the worship is a share weekly welcome led by  the headteacher and Thursday's worship is a singing assembly led by our singing lead. On Wednesday, junior children attend our partner church for an engaging and joyful service with the wonderful Mrs Price and on Friday the infants attend. On Tuesday each class leads a Mind to be Kind class assembly. 

All pupils have a half hour playtime at 10.30am, where their play is supported and supervised by all non-teaching staff.

Lunchtime begins at 12.10pm starting with children from Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 before serving the junior children. Once the children have finished eating, they have supervised free play in their respective playground (inside if raining heavily).
