We ask that pupils should not arrive at school before 8.45 am. The gates open at 8.45 and children can enter into school from this time to go into class for 'early morning work'. Registration is at 8.55am.

If working parents need to drop children off before 8.45 am they should make arrangements with the Early Drop-off club at Kidspace.  This is so that we do not have pupils for whom we cannot guarantee proper supervision.

All children have a 15 minute break time together part way through the morning.

Lunchtime is staggered so that children get time to eat their lunch in a sociable and yet calm manner as well as having time to play outside with their friends.

Key Stage 1 children (years 1 and 2) have an additional playtime for 15 minutes, half way through their afternoon. Foundation stage children have continuous active learning in the afternoon within their indoor and outdoor environment, but will join KS1 as they get ready to transition into Year 1.
