Before School and After School Care
Before School Care:
Monday to Friday 7.30am to 8.40am.
After School Care:
Monday to Friday - 3.10pm to 5:45pm
We also have a variety of clubs which run after school and finish at 4:30pm. There is a small charge if you wish your child to attend. If your child is eligible for Pupil Premium funding, then the cost may be subsidised.
The School Day
Door opens - 8.35am, children are invited to come into school
Members of staff will be available on the playground should you wish to talk to them
The children will be greeted by their Class teacher or TA as they enter the classroom. All classes will have calm music playing to relax the children and create a welcoming atmosphere as the children begin their school day.
School starts at 8:40am each day
School ends at 3.10pm each day
Lunchtime is 45mins to 1 hour long depending on the age of your child
The school day is 6 hours and 30 minutes per day
The school week is 32 hours and 30 minutes per week.
All children enter the school by either the front gate or the back gate
During the morning the teacher will decide when the class needs a break to ensure the maximum level of focus for learning.
Children in Reception and Year 1 only break if necessary, so they can continue developing their ideas and the learning through play. It can take up to 45 minutes for children to have deep learning happening and if they were to pack up just as this was happening, learning opportunities would be lost. This is something we try to avoid.
Whole assembly takes place at 9:05am every morning.
End of the day
The front gate and back gates will open for parents at about 3:00pm. When the children have been collected after school, we ask that parents leave the site as soon as possible and not have their children playing on any equipment. The school gates will be locked at 3.30pm. This allows the staff to know that the school is then a safe site, that all children (unless they are in a club) have gone home and keeps the children who remain in clubs safe at school.
