Times of the School Day:
The school day starts at 8.45am, however, children may enter the building from 8.30am onwards. No children should be on the school site prior to this time as there is no one available to supervise them and ensure they are safe.
Infant lunch is between 11.50am and 12.55pm.
Junior lunch is between 12.05pm and 12.55pm.
The school day ends at 3.20pm.
Teaching time (excluding playtimes, lunchtimes and assemblies) is 22 hours for infants and 24.5 hours for juniors.
There are 11 mixed-ability classes, nine of which are mixed age groups.
Healthy Snacks and Water:
The children in YR, Y1 and Y2 are provided with a free piece of fruit each day. Children in Key Stage 2 (Y3/4/5/6) are allowed to bring in fruit or a healthy snack for mid-morning break. The school kitchen also runs a tuck shop during break where children can purchase a small snack and / or a drink.
All children are encouraged to drink water during the school day and are provided with a water bottle when they join the school. New water bottles can be purchased from the school office. Whilst your child does not have to have a school water bottle we do ask that they have a bottle with a sports type top, just in case of a spill. Please note that we allow water only, not juice.
We are a nut free school, due to the fact that we have several children with life-threatening allergies.
Our school uniform consists of black/dark grey trousers or skirts (shorts permitted in the warmer weather), a white polo shirt or school shirt, a red jumper or cardigan and black school shoes (no trainers please). The children in Year 6 are allowed to wear a grey school sweatshirt. Items of clothing with the school logo on are available for purchase at the school office should you wish to have these.
Your child should have a change of clothes for PE in school each day. This should consist of a t-shirt and shorts, with a change of shoes - such as trainers or plimsolls. A track suit / sweatshirt and jogging bottoms are recommended for the colder months when the children will still be doing outdoor PE. During the warmer months when the swimming pool is in use your child will need swimming clothing and a t-shirt to wear in the outdoor pool. The older children walk up to the secondary school pool and do not need a t-shirt as part of their kit. All children should wear swimming hats to protect the filters.
We are a no-smoking site, this includes the use of e-cigarettes.
