The School Day
Our school is organised in such a way as to provide maximum time for learning across a balanced curriculum.
Our school is committed to offering our children a healthy start to the school day by inviting them to attend a Breakfast Club from 8.00am each day. Places in our Breakfast Club can be arranged through the main school office, and cost £4 a day.
Our school gate opens at 8.40am, and children are invited in to their classrooms from 8.40am. Our offical school day begins at 8.55am.
In our school, the mornings are usually given to Phonics, Reading, Writing and Maths. Depending on the year group, the order in which these are taught may vary. In addition, each day a collective worship is held, where children learn about current events and festivals, sing, celebrate and share their learning.
All of our EYFS, KS1 and KS2 children have a twenty-minute break in the middle of the morning.
All children have a staggered lunch from 11.40am through to 1.20pm. Play time and lunchtime staff are trained to support children’s play, using the OPAL play approach. There are a wide range of activities for children to enjoy, such as skipping, reading, drawing and sports.
Our afternoons are filled with learning based on the wider curriculum. Subjects taught include Science, Geography, History, Physical Education, Design Technology and Art.
In addition to these, the children are taught by specialist teachers for French, Computing, Physical Education, Instrumental Tuition and Music.
The school day ends at 3.20pm in EYFS/KS1 and 3.30pm in KS2.
Our total school week is: 32.5 hours
Our school office is open from 8.40am - 4.00pm
