Our School Day

8.45

The playground is open for the children to play before school. Parents are asked to wait outside, unless they need to speak to someone in school. We encourage the children to play together on the playground as a good start to the day. We also do this because up to half the children come to school by bus and we do not want any child to feel unhappy if they cannot be with their parents while others can.

9.00

School starts. Parents need to be aware that arrival after this time causes upset to their child as activities begin as soon as they enter their classrooms.

Classes study either Literacy or Numeracy at this time

9.45 - 10.00

Collective Worship. This takes place each day and is an opportunity for the children and staff to spend a short time considering the bigger questions in life and focusing on the Value being studied that half term. Once a fortnight on a Wednesday this is held in Church and is led by the Vicar
