We have a ‘soft start’ at the beginning of the school day.  Mr Garner and Mrs Marshall welcome the children by the slope/KS1 door at 8:30am.  Parents are asked to ensure that their children do not arrive in school before 8.30am as children are not supervised before this time and parents are asked to sign the Home School Agreement acknowledging this.  The Reception garden will be oen from 8:30am and the doors to the classroom will open at 8:40am to allow the children to enter and start the day.  All other classroom doors will be open at 8:35am and we ask for all children to be seated in their classrooms by 8:50pm when registers will be taken.

The lunch break for Nursery is between 11:50 am and 12:20 pm
The lunch break for Reception and KS1 is between 12.00 noon and 1.00 pm
The lunch break for KS2 is between 12.15 pm and 1.15 pm.
Most children stay in school to eat lunch.
