The Primary Day

The Primary Day:

Doors open in Primary at 8.45am (and at 8.55am for Reception.)  We close the doors at 9.00am sharp, as all children are expected to be in their classrooms by then to begin their learning.  Children arriving in the classroom before 9am will be working on a “morning task” so the earlier the child arrives the more they will get out of their start to the day.  The day starts with this morning task, and then follows a class timetable for the remainder of the day.  Children have an hour for lunch (45 minutes for Year 5 and 6), which includes eating a hot meal or a packed lunch in the Ballroom.  The day finishes between 3.15pm and 3.30pm Monday to Thursday and from 2.00pm to 2.15pm on a Friday. 

Wraparound provision is available from 7.45am until 6pm and more information can be found under the “Wraparound” tab on the website.
When dropping children off, Reception children use the door to their classroom, off the triangular playground, and all other children go in through the Primary entrance (the entrance to the left of the main entrance as you look at the school.) 

Reception children are also collected from the triangular playground, with all other classes using the Primary Entrance (leaving times re staggered to facilitate a smooth pick up.)

If you need to drive to school, there is a Park and Stride car park nearby which parents and carers can use.  Parents/carers/children with disabilities can obtain permission to park in front of the school, however please note there is 30 minutes at the end of each day when cars are not permitted to drive past the main entrance for safety reasons.

When children have PE, they can come in PE kit for the entire day as this frees up time for learning that would otherwise be used for changing.
