Our School Day
The playground is open from 8:30am every morning, and classrooms open at 8:40am - we politely request that children are supervised until 8:40am.
Class Teachers will welcome the children each day at the door. Registration is at 8.50am and children are expected to be in class at this time. The end of the school day is at 3.10pm.
During the morning each class will have dedicated sessions for phonics, reading, spelling, punctuation and grammar (SPAG), maths and writing.
Children have a morning break at 10:30am. If your child would like a snack at break time please choose a healthy snack e.g. fruit.
Acorn and Willow classes start their lunch break at 12:00pm, followed by Willow and Oak classes at 12:15pm. Lunchtimes for all end at 1.00pm.
The end of the school day
The end of the school day is 3.10pm and parents and carers collect their children from the school playground.
Drop-off and collection
At the beginning and end of the school day, parents drop-off and collect their children from the playground. This helps to build up a close relationship between home and school - staff are almost always available in the playground or at the classroom door to help you with any queries. If normal arrangements have to be altered (e.g. you are delayed or another person is collecting your child) please let us know. This avoids any confusion or upset.
Parking at school
To get to and from school walking is definitely the healthier option however we understand this is not practical for everybody.
If you use the school car park please ensure that you reverse into a car parking space and that you make use of the spaces around the outside of the car park before filling up the middle section. It makes the car park safer for the pedestrians.
