We open our doors for the children to come in at 8.45 a.m.  The register is taken at 8:55am for Foundation/Key Stage One and at 8.50am for Key Stage Two.   The teaching sessions finish at 12.00 noon.  There is an assembly (collective act of worship) for 15 minutes each day. Assemblies offer opportunities for calm reflection, acknowledging achievements and raising pupils’ awareness of moral issues. We conduct assemblies in a dignified and respectful way. It is the statutory right of any parent to withdraw their child from collective worship activities.

The morning session includes a playtime of 20 minutes.  Children in Reception and Key Stage One receive fruit at mid-morning break.  This fruit is provided as part of a national government initiative towards healthy eating.  Children have free milk up the age of 5 and pupils in reception can have milk daily through the School Milk Scheme. All children have access to water during the school day. Key Stage 2 pupils bring in their own fruit snack. Since September 2014 “infants” (4-7 year olds) are provided with a free school lunch.

The afternoon teaching session is from 1p.m. to 3.10 p.m. for KS1 and 3.15 p.m. for KS2. We have a “flexible” playtime in the afternoon to fit in with the children’s learning. At the end of the day children remain in school until they see the person who is collecting them in the playground.  There are designated areas for collection for different year groups and classes.  This is to ensure that the children can be collected safely.  If you are unavoidably detained, or you have arranged for someone else to collect your child, please inform us in writing or telephone if you have changed the arrangements unexpectedly.  If your child is going to be collected by an After School Club, child-minder or you have a regular arrangement please inform us in writing. If any child in Key Stage 2 (years 3-6) has your permission to walk home by themselves the school requires parents to provide written permission.
