The children are welcome to come into school from 8:45am. We have what is called a 'soft start' meaning that the entrances to the school are 'manned' by staff and the teacher is in the classroom. This means that the children have a 15-minute window, to arrive at school and settle into their classroom before the 9am registration time. A typical school week (compulsory hours for Reception to Year 6) is 32.5 hours long for our children.
For children who need to be at school before 8:45am, we have a 'Before School Club'. This runs from 7:30am and places are booked directly with Cathy, who leads the 'Before School Club'. For more information, please see the page titled 'Extended Schools'.
School begins at 9:00am
School ends at 3.30pm
Lunch is staggered from 12:00 – 1:00pm (Year 1), 12:15 – 1:15pm (Year 2), 12:30 – 1:30pm (Years 3 & 4) and 1:00 – 2:00pm (Years 5 & 6).
