The School Day

School Opening 

Our school delivers a 32.5 hours school week

School can be accessed via our pedestrian gate on Colts Lane, side gate that runs alongside the school and the rear gate that is just off Farlow Close.

The school gates are opened from 8.15 daily and pupils should be supervised until the doors are opened and parents hand their child to the class teacher.  The gates are then closed by 8.45.

Reception, Y1, Y2, Y3 and Y4 school day starts at 8.30.  Pupils should be in school and registered by 8.40.  

Each morning pupils will have a break from their learning where they can access the playground where they can make use of our play equipment.  

Reception have lunch at 11.45- 12.45 whilst Y1, Y2, Y3 and Y4 have lunch at 12.00 to 12.50

Pupils who attend nursery for morning sessions only start at 8.30 and finish at 11.30 and can be picked up via the side gate and the Nursery door.

Any visitors should arrive via the side gate, press on the 'buzzer' and report to the office.  Here Sharon or Lisa can help with any query, get messages to the teaching team, drop off water bottles or any forgotten lunch boxes.
