Breakfast Club runs daily from 7:45am to 8:45am in the Harding Room at a cost of £2 per day; spaces are limited and must be pre-booked in advance via ParentPay.

Our school gates open at 8:40am and the classroom doors are open between 8:45am to 8:50am.  Learning begins at 8:50am and this is when registration takes place.  

Please note that our Nursery times differ: Morning Nursery begins promptly at 8:30am and Afternoon Nursery begins promptly at 12:30pm.  

A range of assemblies take place throughout the week.

The end of the school day is staggered to allow parents time to move around our large site to collect siblings:

  • 3:10pm for Reception

Session Times for our Morning and Afternoon Nursery are:

We run a number of after school clubs for pupils in KS1 and KS2 each term which include a wide variety of sporting, craft and cookery clubs.  Clubs are offered to pupils in our reception classes from the spring term.  They usually run from 3:15pm to 4:15pm and some after school clubs (e.g. cookery) are subject to a small charge.
