We have a ‘soft start’ at the beginning of the school day.  Mrs Marshall welcomes 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 they are not supervised before this time. Burford families are asked to sign the Home School Agreement acknowledging this.  The Reception garden will be open 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 8:50am when registers will be taken.


The lunch break for Nursery is between 11:40 and 12:10pm

The lunch break for Reception, KS1 and Lower KS2 is between 12.00 and 13.00pm.

Lunch break for upper KS2 is between 12:15 and 13:15pm.

Most children stay in school to eat lunch.


During the normal school week the  children are in school for 32.5 hours.

Total teaching hours are as follows:

Key Stage 1  Age 5 – 7         22.5 hours
