THE SCHOOL DAY

The school day starts at 8:55 a.m. and finishes at 3:25 p.m.


Registration is from 8:55 a.m. to 9:00 a.m.


Every morning between 9:00 a.m. and 12 noon every class has English and maths. Throughout the afternoon, the children have the foundation subjects, the rest of the core curriculum subjects, P.E. and swimming.


Timetables are available for all classes.

Assemblies

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 often 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 and promote the Paralympic and British Values.

Morning break

The children have a morning break from 10:45 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. Tuck is available for children to purchase daily.

Lunch


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

Drop off and collection

Children should be dropped at one of the school gates located in Ronald Hill Grove and Westleigh Avenue. Teacher supervision, prior to morning registration, begins at 8:40 a.m. and we would appreciate it if your child does not arrive before this time, unless they are attending an early morning club. Children should be picked up from the playground at 3:25 p.m. Staff responsibility for the children ends at 3:35 p.m. unless they are attending an after school club. 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 lots of benefits: it’s healthier than travelling by car, it improves the safety of pedestrians and road-users and it respects nearby residents and parking regulations. Year 6 children can use the bike racks on completion of their Bikeability course. If you do need to travel by car, please park wisely.
