Our school day

The school day starts at 8.50 am for Key Stage 2 and at 8.55 am for Key Stage 1.
 
Registration takes place in the first 5 minutes of the day.
 
We have a daily act of collective worship which takes place at 10.00 am on Monday to Thursday and at 1.30 pm on a Friday.
 
Morning Playtimes
At 10.15 am the children in Years 1 to 6 have their first play.  This lasts for 15 minutes.
 
Lunch
Children in the infants have their lunch from 11.45 am until 12.40 pm.
Years 3 to 6 begin their lunch at 12.30 pm and lunchtime ends for them at 1.25 pm.
 
Afternoon Play
Children in Years 1 and 2 have an afternoon play from 1.45 pm until 2.00 pm.
 
Drop of and collection
The school doors are opened at 8.45 am and the children are welcomed into school from this point until the doors close at the start of the day.  There are Teaching Assistants available to take messages on each of the doors. The teaching staff are not available at these times as they are in class meeting and greeting the children.  
 
If normal pick-up arrangments have to be changed (e.g. you are delayed or another person is collecting your child), please let us know.  This avoids 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 of pedestrians and road-users and it respects our nearby residents and parking restrictions.  To encourage walking and reduce congestion around the school we have a park and stride arrangement with the Cricket Club and Birchfield Road Social Club.  Alternatively, we have bike and scooter racks.  If you do need to travel by car, please park considerately.
