The school day begins at 8.55am and ends at 3.25pm for all year groups. 

Years 3, 4 and 5 will exit onto the playground at the end of the day. Year 6 will exit onto School Street.


During the week, children have assemblies in different settings. On Monday and Friday, the whole school meet together in the dining hall and sing, listen to stories and celebrate achievement within the school. We sometimes have visitors from different religious faiths and denominations who come and share assemblies with the children on these days.

There are also lower/upper school assemblies, year group assemblies and class assemblies throughout the week. We use these assemblies as an opportunity to explore religious festivals from a wide range of religions, promote the British Values, Protected Characteristics and our own school priorities such as growth mind-set and our diversity driver.


Lunchtime begins at 12 noon and ends at 1:10 p.m. Each year group has a time slot to be seated for their lunch which is rotated on a weekly basis.

Morning Break

The children have a morning break from 10:45 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. Healthy tuck options are available to purchase daily from our school tuck shop, which is run by monitors in Year 6. Children can also bring in a snack from home if they wish. We encourage children to bring in healthy snacks full of vitamins and minerals and containing no added salt, fat or sugar. Many of these will help contribute to their five daily portions of fruit and vegetables, keep them alert and help them concentrate. 

If you are intending to send in healthy snacks with your child, please limit them to the list below: 

  • fresh or dried fruit or vegetables 

  • plain rice cakes 

  • bread sticks/pitta bread/oat cakes/crackers 

  • plain popcorn 

  • hummus 

  • cheese 

  • yoghurt 


No chocolate, sweets, cereal bars, cake bars/cakes, pastries or crisps. 

All snacks sent to school must be nut free. 

Drop Off and Collection

Children should enter through one of the school gates located on Ronald Hill Grove or Westleigh Avenue. Teacher supervision, prior to morning registration, begins at 8:40 a.m. and we would appreciate your child not arriving before this time, unless they are attending an early morning club. Years 3, 4 and 5 will exit onto the playground at the end of the day. Year 6 will exit onto School Street. If for any reason you are unavoidably detained, please inform us and your child will be asked to wait at the school office.

Getting to School

To get to and from school, walking is definitely the best option! There are many benefits: it is healthier than travelling by car, it improves the safety of pedestrians and road-users, it respects nearby residents and parking regulations and, of course, it is good for the environment. Children may use the school bike racks to store their bikes and scooters. Children cycling to school must wear a protective helmet. If you do need to travel by car, please park wisely. Please note that the section of Ronald Hill Grove outside the school gates is closed to all motorised vehicles from 8.40 – 8.55 am and 3.15 and 3.30pm each weekday as part of the local authority’s “School Street” initiative.
