The School Day

To encourage social skills, the children greet the Head Teacher or a staff member with a handshake at the door each morning.

The doors open at 8.15 am and the school day starts at 8.45 am with registration in their classrooms.

A regular whole school assembly reinforces core values and morals; other assemblies might celebrate personal, musical or academic success.  Once a term every class gets the chance to lead a topic-based assembly, often connected to the curriculum.

Pupils getting ready for their lesson
Whilst the morning concentrates on English and Mathematics there is ample opportunity to take part in the whole range of subject areas during the school day.

On three days a week, the children have a physical activity lesson with a specialist teacher, which includes PE and Games.

Break times and lunchtimes are occasions when the children can mix with their peers and play outside. 

The school day ends at 3.30 pm, with after school clubs running five days a week until 4.45 pm.  There is extended care until 5.30 pm.  Homework is set from Reception onwards and all children are encouraged to devote time to reading with their parents every day.
