The School Day

The school day begins with registration for all infants at 08:45 and for junior children at 08:50. The school day finishes at 15:20 for Infants and 15:30 for Juniors. The children are welcome onto the playgrounds from 8.30am where they will be supervised by a member of staff. 

The length of the school day for Infants is 32.5 hours per week.

The length of the school day for Juniors is 33.75 hours per week. 

In the event of wet weather, children should go straight into their classrooms, where adult supervision will be provided from 08:30.

Please note that there can be traffic congestion around our school. Wherever possible, parents/carers   should aim to ‘park and stride’, parking a short distance away from the site and walking the rest of the   way. Parents/carers should not use the school staff car park to park or turn, as this creates a hazard for   pedestrians and could prevent emergency vehicles from accessing the site. Please consider if you can walk to   our A24 pedestrian gate.


From Year 1 onwards, children have a 15 minute break in the morning. We encourage healthy eating   within the school, so your child may bring fresh fruit or vegetables to eat at break time. Crisps and   sweets are not allowed. 

Children in Year Reception are engaged in small group work and independent learning, inside and   outside,  across the whole morning. They are able to take a break as needed and are encouraged to help   themselves to fruit which is provided for them. 

Please note that we aim to be a nut-free school. We ask parents/carers not to send nuts or nut products into school. This includes tree nuts such as walnut, almond, hazelnut, cashew, pistachio and Brazil nuts, as well as peanuts.

We also recommend that your child brings a named sports bottle of water with them every day.


Reception go into lunch at 11.55 am. Lunch break for Year 1 and Year 2 is 12:00 – 13:00 pm. Years 3, 4,5 and 6 have lunch break from 12.15pm to 13.15pm

Afternoon Break

Children in Reception Class and KS1 – Year 1 & 2 continue with small group work and independent   learning, inside and outside, across the afternoon and are able to take a break to help themselves to   water and fruit as they wish. 

End of the Day

The school day ends at 15:20 for Infants and 15:30 for Juniors.

Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 classes are collected from the door/gate to the right of the main school entrance. Alternatively you may collect via the A24 gate.

Years 3, 4, 5 & 6 will make their way out to the Junior playground or A24 gate to meet their parents/carers.
