School Day

School day

Our school day is organised in such a way to provide maximum time for learning across a balanced curriculum. 

Total time in a typical week = 32.5 hours

Breakfast Club

We offer all our children a positive start to the day by inviting them to breakfast club at 8:00am. Here, they can enjoy a healthy breakfast, participate in activities and prepare for a day of learning.

The Start of the School Day

Children should enter the school via the front gate or Byfield gate, between 8:45am and 8:55am

Staff will be stationed on the door to supervise the children's entry and to speak with parents/carers as needed. Please bear in mind that the gates close precisely at 8:55am each day. Any arrivals after this time should be accompanied by their designated adult to the school office, to be recorded as late.


Each class has their own timetable which incorporates the full breadth of the national curriculum. Assemblies take place Monday and Friday and are often themed around the school's vision and values. Assemblies are also a space for children to learn about current events, celebrate festivals, share learning, sing songs and to share whole school worship.

Children also enjoy a 15 minute break in the morning.

Lunch Time

Children can enjoy a packed lunch or a school meal. Midday supervisors support children's play and provide varied activities which promote social interaction, physical activity and structured play.


During the afternoons, children continue to learn subjects from across our broad curriculum. 

After School

After school, we provide an array of activities and clubs for children from Reception to Year 6. These are a chance for children to explore a hobby and most importantly have fun.
