Our School Day

School Day and Organisation:


School starts at 8:30am. Children can arrive between 8:25 - 8:35am.

Morning break: 10:10am

Lunch: 12:10pm

Afternoon break (KS1 only): 2:00pm

End of school day: 3:00pm


We have a popular breakfast and after-school club for extended care. Breakfast club starts at 7:30am and after-school club runs until 6pm. There is a charge for these which can be found on the 'Breakfast and After-School Club' tab. 


Reminder - Drop Off and Collection:
Drop off starts at 8:25am - all children need to be in school by 8:35am. Only children who are in Year 1 or above (and have the independence to exit the car unaided) can use the school drop off zone at the front of the school.  (KS2 children with Year R siblings will need to be walked in with their younger sibling/s). Children go straight into class on their arrival at school.

We continue to encourage parents of the older children (Year 1 - 6) to say goodbye to their child at the gate to encourage independence.
All children finish school at 3pm. We ask that parents wait outside the classroom and children will be handed over to an adult for all year groups. Year 5 and 6 children who have permission to walk home are allowed to leave site without being handed over. 
We encourage families to use the Waypoint Church car park behind the school rather than parking on the very busy Primate Road - this is a considerably safer and easier option.  It is a very short walk to the back gate of the school, which will be opened 8.25 - 8.35am and 2.55 - 3.05pm.
