Times of day

Break and Lunch

Upper school and lower school have separate break and lunchtimes. Year 3 & 4 have a 15 minute break at 10am, with year 5 & 6’s break taking place at 11am. Lunchtime is 12noon-12:45pm for year 3 &4 and 12:45pm-1:30pm for year 5 & 6.

Assemblies

Assemblies vary throughout the year, with a mixture of year group assemblies, upper and lower school assemblies and whole school assemblies. These assemblies cover a range of topics, including current and annual events, singing and celebrations.

Drop-off and Collection

At the beginning of the school day, parents are encouraged to leave their child at the school gate leading into the playground. Children then walk safely across the playground and into the school building thereby promoting a little independence. In the afternoons, parents are welcome to come into the playground to wait for children to be released by their class teacher.  If normal arrangements have to be altered (e.g. you are delayed or another person is collecting your child) please let us know. This will avoid any confusion or upset.

Getting to School

To get to and from school, walking is definitely the best option! There are lots of benefits: It’s healthier than travelling by car, it improves the safety or pedestrians and road-users and it respects nearby residents and parking regulations. If you do need to travel by car, please park wisely, safely and considerately.
