School Day

School is open for a total of 32.5 hours per week during term time.  The school times for pupils are:


School starts


School ends

Whole School


12:15am - 1:15pm


Our children enter school through their classroom doors which are unlocked at 8.45 am.  It is essential that all children arrive at school on time. If they arrive late it disrupts registration of those who do arrive punctually and sometimes delays morning activities. On the other hand, children should not arrive before doors are unlocked (unless they are booked into our Breakfast Club) as they would be unsupervised.

The site is locked when the school sessions start and re-opened at the end of the school day for parents to meet their children at the classroom doors. All children who are late should enter school via the front door and book in at the school office.

Lateness is closely monitored and we also ask that you collect pupils on time at the end of the school day as we cannot guarantee adult supervision.  If you are going to be late collecting your child you should arrange for someone else to collect them on time and contact the school office to let them know.


Children eat together regardless of whether they have a hot lunch or their own cold packed lunch. If your child is bringing their own packed lunch your co-operation with the following is required:

  • Lunch should be brought in a lunchbox which is labelled with the child's name.
  • Drinks should be in a plastic container, preferably with a screw or sports top.
  • NO glass bottles, glass lined thermal flasks or metal cans should be brought.
  • No hot or fizzy drinks.
  • No nuts or products containing nuts should be brought to school at any time due to severe nut allergies.

In hot weather it is a good idea to put an ice pack in the lunch box.  We participate in the Cool Milk at School scheme and parents may order mid-morning milk for their child if preferred.  The school office can provide details.  We provide children with a water bottle which is kept in school at all times which they can drink from and refill when necessary.

Under the National Fruit Scheme, children between the ages of 4-6 are eligible to receive a piece of fresh fruit each day. This is a Government initiative aimed at promoting healthy eating, for which there is no charge. Older children are invited to bring in their own piece of fruit daily. The fruit is generally eaten mid-morning.

Free Lunches

All EYFS and KS1 pupils (Reception, Year 1 and Year 2) are eligible for Universal Free School Meals, funded by central Government. These are provided by our hot meal provider, ABM Catering.  Meals should be ordered using Parentpay.

Free school meals are also provided throughout the rest of the school for children eligible for Pupil Premium.  If you are in receipt of any benefits then your child may qualify.  If you feel your child qualifies, you can find out all the details by clicking on the link here. Our school staff can also help you.
