The School Day
School starts at 8.45 am (Nursery 8.30 am). There is an adult on gate duty from 8.30 am - 8.45 am. As children arrive, they make their way straight to their classrooms to complete morning work or interventions with their teacher. Morning registration follows. The school gate is locked at 8.45 am and remains locked until 3.00 pm.
There are two playtimes during the school day. Morning break for the infants is 10.00 –10.15 am and 10.15 – 10.30 am for the juniors and afternoon break is 2.00 - 2.10 pm for the infants and 2.10 - 2.20 pm for the juniors. Children are encouraged to bring a piece of fruit or a healthy snack to eat during the morning break.
Children are supervised throughout the lunch break from 12.00 noon to 1 pm. Children bring their own packed lunches. Please check our school policies for the Healthy Eating and No Nuts Policy.
The school day ends at 3.10 pm for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 when children are dismissed from their classroom into the care of the parent/guardian waiting in the school playground. If there is no-one visible to the staff to meet the child he/she will remain in the playground under the care of the duty teacher or inside the building. It is important that children are collected on time to avoid unnecessary stress to the child. For children in Years 3 - 6 the school day finishes at 3.20 pm following the same procedure above.
