The School Day

Currently our school day is slightly different as we are following government guidance to keep our year groups separate.  Consequently, each year group has a different start and finish time:


  • Year 3 start at 9:10 and finish at 3:30.
  • Year 4 start at 8:40 and finish at 3:00.
  • Year 5 start at 8:50 and finish at 3:10.
  • Year 6 start at 9:00 and finish at 3:00.


Children are able to come straight into school at these times.


Break and lunch times are also currently staggered to provide children with the opportunity to use space outside.  Our day has been structured to ensure that teaching time is not lost for the children.

Our school day begins at 8:55am when children come into school.  We supervise children on the playground from 8:45am however they should not be on the playground without parent supervision prior to this time.

During registration all pupils undertake a registration activity which ranges from reading to editing previous learning.  It is essential that all children are at school on time so they do not miss out on any learning time.


8:55am - School day begins

10:30am - Breaktime

12.00pm - Lunchtime

1:00pm - Afternoon learning begins

3:30pm - End of the school day


Children line up on the playground at the end of the school day where they are dismissed by their class teacher.  This provides parents and carers with an opportunity to briefly speak to the class teacher however if a longer appointment is required, please telephone the school office.
