School Day

School hours

The school gates open at 8.45am and remains open until 8.55am when the school day starts. Children arriving after this time will need to come into school via the office. After 9am they will receive a late mark.

Children are collected from the playground at the end of the school day, at 3.15pm. Our compulsory school week is 32.4 hours. This excludes times at the optional breakfast and after school club. 


There is one hour for lunch from 12.00 noon to 1.00 pm, and fifteen minutes for morning break which is at 10.35 am. Younger pupils have an afternoon playtime.


We have a breakfast club that runs from 8am. There are also after school clubs which run from 3.15 to 4.30. These are either for Key Stage 2 or Key Stage 1 children. Click on the quick link below to go to the clubs page.
