The School Day



School gates open

Children enter via the double gates at the back of the playground, adults will leave their children at the gate, rather than walk them in (some adjustments for year three children in September). There will always be an adult on the gate as well as adults on duty.


Registration takes place

Children must be in class by this time or they are recorded as late. If children arrive after 09:10 they are considered as absent for the purposes of attendance records.

11:00 – 11:15

Morning Break for Lower School

11.15 - 11.30 Morning Break for Upper School

12:30 - 13:25

Lunch time


End of school day

Parents and carers wait inside school gate

There is also a 15-minute assembly time every day. Whole school assembly takes place twice a week and one of these is an opportunity to celebrate. Tell us if your child has done something special in or out of school!

  This amounts to 32.5 hours of school in a typical week.
