In Reception children have a flexible structure to their day, in line with the Early Years Curriculum. In years 1 to 6 the children follow a relatively structured timetable, outlined below.
The school day begins at 8.55am; children need to be in the playground ready to start the day by this time. We start with a meet and greet of all the children followed by a brief morning exercise session. This ensures the children are energised, alert and ready to learn.
During the morning, when their attention levels are at their peak, all children have reading, writing and maths lessons.
The first of the two daily breaks is at 11.10am, and the second is at 2.30pm (Years 1 and 2 only). Having two daily breaks ensures that children concentrate when in the classroom.
Lunch is 12.30pm to 1.30pm for all children. During lunchtime our teaching assistants organise a range of activities and organised games so children can choose between structured activities and free play.
The normal school day finishes at 3.30pm. A variety of clubs are available each day after school from 3.30pm to 4.45pm and we offer a huge range of activities that change termly in response to pupil and parent feedback.
We also offer an extended day service that includes breakfast, fitness, music in the morning and soft start which provides a free breakfast for all pupils from 8.30am.
Let's make something beautiful together...
