School day


Our school day

Children begin to arrive at about 8.50am, with those from further afield coming in the school taxis. Every morning we have a shared registration/ assembly time, followed by individual or guided reading. We have a morning break from 10.30 – 10.50, making the most of our wonderful outdoor space. Lunch is from 12 noon  for infants and 12.15 pm for juniors, until 1.05pm and we work through until home time at 3.15pm.

Every morning . On Friday, we all join together for a celebration assembly, where we count up our house points, award certificates for achievement and have a good sing!

                                The core subjects of English and Mathematics are studied in the mornings and in the afternoons we have lessons in PE (currently dance and gymnastics), music, art, design and technology, computing, R.E., French, geography and history. Many of the lessons are cross-curricular, with a topic focus that enables us to learn lots of different skills through the study of a particular area of knowledge.
