The school day starts at 8.40am and finishes at 3.15pm. Registration is from 8.50am to 9.00am.
Morning Playtimes: Children have a morning break from 10.40 – 11.00am.
Lunch: Children in Reception begin their lunch at 11.45am, KS1 at 12.00pm and KS2 at 12.15pm. All children have an hour for lunch.
Afternoon Playtimes: Reception children have very flexible break times.
Drop-off and Collection: At the beginning of the school day, pupils in Years 2 to 6 should line up on the playground, while Nursery, Reception and Year 1 pupils enter via their classroom doors. Staff will collect classes from there, giving opportunities for parents and staff to communicate. If it’s raining, pupils are welcome to congregate in the school’s rear foyer.
At the end of the day (or session), children in Nursery, Reception, Years 1 and 2 should be collected directly from their classrooms. Other pupils will exit the building via the rear foyer. If normal arrangements have to be altered (eg you are delayed or another person is collecting your child) please let us know. This avoids any confusion or upset.
Getting to School: Walking to school is the best option as there is limited parking at the school’s entrances on Magdalen Way and Peterhouse Avenue. Also, there is no access to the school’s car park. Alternatively, we have bike-racks next to the playground.
