Children have a 15 minute break in the morning and afternoon. They always go outside for playtimes (weather permitting) and they get a longer break at lunchtime. Here are some additional notes about the start and the end of the school day. We hope they are useful!

  • The earliest arrival time is 8.35am. Adults stay with Infants until the bell is rung for them to go in which helps parents share with staff any important messages.

  • The bell at the start of the day is rung at 8.50am so that children can enter school and be ready to begin the day soon afterwards.

  • At the end of the day the gates are closed at 3.35pm. If children are unable to find their parent or adult collecting them in the playground, they are asked to wait inside the front porch by the School Office until they arrive.
