The School Day

 Classroom doors open at 8.45am until 8.55am when register is taken. Pupils have a           mid-morning break and lunch is at 12.00pm until 12.45pm for Key Stage 1 and 12.50pm until 1.35pm for Key Stage 2.

Key Stage 1 (Early Years Foundation Stage, Year 1 and Year 2) leave for the day at 3.00pm, Key Stage 2 (Year 3-6) finish 5 minutes later at 3.05pm. 


The school day equates to:

Lower School 31 hours and 15 minutes per week. 

Upper School 31 hours and 40 minutes per week.


The hot school meals are provided by Pabulum and are prepared on the premises. They are currently £2 per day which can be paid daily or weekly in advance. We have recently introduced an electronic payment and ordering service - log in details are available from the Main Office.

There is a morning break time between 10.30 a.m and 10.45 a.m. for which you can provide a drink and snack for your child. We do ask that no fizzy drinks or chocolate are sent for snack time. We provide a piece of fruit/vegetable for the children to have in KS1.

We encourage children to drink regularly throughout the day, so your child will need to bring in a named flask or bottle of water each day.

The school opens its doors at 8.45am for children to enter his/her classroom. From 8.45am through to 9.05am.

We can admit up to 90 children in each year group and we therefore operate three classes in each year group.
