The School Day

Owing to the Covid pandemic, timings are slightly different but are usually as follows:

The doors are opened from 8:45am to allow the children time to come in and be ready for registration in their class. Registers are closed at 8:55am. Any child arriving after this is marked as late. We ask that children do not arrive before 8:30am


8:50am – 11:50pm

There is a 15 minute break for all children each morning at 10:30am


12:50pm – 15:15pm (Reception and Key Stage 1)

12:50pm – 15:20pm (Key Stage 2)

We hold collective worship (assembly) in the hall on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
