Our school day begins at 8.45am with ‘trickling in’, whereby children can come into their classrooms and start their learning. Although the register is not taken until 9.05am, it is an opportunity for the children to come in calmly and utilise the time with their class teacher and peers. A range of ‘start of the day’ (SODA) activities will be completed, including reading, basic maths skills and working in small groups with an adult.
During the morning session, most classes will have a Maths and English lesson and children will often attend assembly. They will have a daily playtime of 15 minutes; children are encouraged to bring a healthy snack or school will provide them with a bagel.
Lunchtime begins at 11.45am for EYFS children, 12.00am for KS1, 12.15 for Lower Key Stage 2 and 12.45pm for Upper Key Stage 2. Due to COVID restrictions, all children eat in their classrooms and then enjoy playtime activities outside. Although the playground is usually split into zones where the equipment is managed and games are led by our team of playground buddies, this currenly not able to happen due to COVID restrictions.
During the afternoon sessions, children will enjoy a range of lessons covering all areas of the National Curriculum.
The afternoon session finishes at 3.00pm for Y6 children and siblings, 3.05pm for Y5 children and siblings, 3.10pm for Y4 children and siblings, 3.15pm for Y3 children and siblings and 3.20pm for Y2 and Y1. EYFS can be collected from 3pm. This will alter once COVID restrictions have lifted. Parents/carers can collect their children from the playground. Please let the school office or class teacher know if your child is being collected by by another adult. If a sibling is collecting, they must be aged 16 or older.
Year Six children may walk home alone if we have parents' permission.
