The School Day

During a school week children are in school for 32.5 hours - as per DfE requirements.  There are 25 hours of teaching time. 


The timings for our school day are as follows:


8.45am.  Gates open to children:

  • Reception/Key Stage 1 parents and pupils wait on the playground to be collected by your teacher.
  • Key Stage pupils to go straight into the classroom and begin a morning activity.


Please do not arrive at school before this time.  As a Healthy School, we encourage children to walk, cycle or scooter.  Bicycles and scooters can be left securely at school throughout the school day.  


9.00am. The school day begins for all children and registers will close at 9.10am.  If you are delayed, and the gates are closed when you arrive, please accompany your child to the main entrance.  If you know that you are going to be late, please let us know, if possible.
