School Day - Times

The school Day

8.40 a.m. to 12.00 noon. 1.00 p.m. to 3.10 p.m.


The morning bell is rung at 8.40 a.m. in order to give the children ample time to be in their classrooms ready to start the day's learning at 8.40 a.m. You may wish to speak briefly to a teacher to book a time to chat in more detail later. If you wish to discuss an issue more urgently please report to the general office and you will be able to speak to either the HT or DH or another member of the Senior Leadership Team.

Morning playtimes

Children in Y1 and Y2 have a morning break from 10.35 – 10.50; older children from 10.20 – 10.35


Children in Reception have lunch at 11.30, KS1 and KS2 have lunch at 12.00. Everyone begins theur afternoon learning at 1pm.

Drop-off and collection

At the end of the school day, parents are encouraged into the playground. This helps to build up a close relationship between home and school – we want to have good links with all parents. 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

To get to and from school, walking is definitely the best option! There are lots of benefits: it’s healthier than travelling by car, it improves the safety of pedestrians and road-users, and it respects nearby residents and parking regulations.  If you do need to travel by car, please park wisely avoiding the double yellow lines.
