On arrival, children go straight to their classrooms to begin the day with morning activities. We encourage parents, when children first start school, to share these morning tasks with their children as they get used to the routines of the school day. However, by the time the children are in Year 1, they are expected to be more independent at settling into daily routines.
Registration is at 8.55 am.
Morning teaching is from 9:00 am with morning break for KS2 at 10:40 -10:55am.
Children are encouraged to bring a healthy fruit snack for morning break. Other snacks are not allowed, except where there are specific dietary needs (such as diabetic requirements) that have been agreed with the Headteacher.
For the younger children, there is a much more flexible day. Play is celebrated as a crucial aspect of children’s development and they use the outside areas continually as part of their learning.
Although we have water fountains, we also actively encourage children to bring their own water bottles (available for £1 from the school office). The drinking of water (not juice) is encouraged.
