The School Day
Our school day has reverted now to the original times prior to the staggered times used last year to comply with COVID-19 guidelines.
Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 start at 8.45am and finish at 3.00pm.
Year 1 and Year 2 Lunchtime:12.30 -1.15pm
Our Nursery and 2-year-old provision sessions run from 8.45 to 11.45 and from 12.15 to 3.15pm. Lunch is available from 11.45am to 12.15pm at a cost £2.00.
We are very proud of our Healthy School accreditation and ask all parents to send their children to school with healthy food choices for their lunch. We employ staff to supervise children whilst they eat and during the playtime. All our children now receive universal free school meals, nutritionally balanced and freshly cooked on site each day.

All items of clothing and footwear should be clearly marked with your child’s name.
We teach maths, reading and writing in a structured way where each lesson builds on the previous one. If a child misses too many sessions they fall behind the rest of the group and often need extra tuition to help them catch up. It is therefore crucial that your child attends school, unless unwell, in order for them to make good progress. As a school we will do all we can to ensure maximum attendance for all children. Any problems that impede full attendance will be identified and promptly addressed. It is the policy of our school to celebrate achievement, and we actively promote and encourage 100 per cent attendance for all our pupils. If your child is ill and unable to attend school, please notify the office by 9.30am. If we do not receive notification from you, we are obliged to enter your child’s absence as unauthorised.
If you have any complaints regarding the school please contact the Head of School or Chair of Governors, Mrs Kelly Caplin. Any correspondence to Mrs. Caplin can be sent to the school and will be forwarded to her.
