Our Usual School Day

Breakfast Club runs daily from 07:45 - 08:45 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 08:40 and the classroom doors are open between 08:45 - 08:50.  Learning begins at 08:50 and this is when registration takes place.  

Please note that our Nursery times differ: Morning Nursery begins promptly at 08:30 and Afternoon Nursery begins promptly at 12:30.  

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:

  • 15:10 for Reception 
  • 15:15 for KS1 
  • 15:20 for KS2 


Session Times for our Morning and Afternoon Nursery are:

We run a number of After School Clubs for pupils in KS1 & KS2 each term which include a wide variety of sporting, craft and cookery clubs.  Clubs are offered to pupils in Reception from the spring term.  They usually run from 15:15 - 16:15 and some after school clubs (e.g. cookery) are subject to a small charge.
