Getting to school – The school gates are open between  8.35 and 8.40am for YR at the London Road entrance and between 8.40 and 8.50am for KS1 at the Ronald Hill Grove entrance.  In YR the children are welcome into their class room during this time, where we start the day with a 'soft start' where children can organise their belongings, speak to ther friends and teacher and take part in a gentle activity to start the day.  In KS1 the children have the opportunity to socialise with their friends in the playground until the whistle blows at 8.50am for the children to line up to go into their classes.

Playtimes – In the Foundation Stage, the children have the opportunity to play and learn outside the classroom both in the morning and in the afternoon. They have their own area which is filled with exciting resources. In Key Stage 1, the children are given the opportunity to play outside during the morning, where they can take a break from the learning in the classroom and enjoy a healthy snack.

Lunch – Lunch times are staggered. Parents can provide their child with a healthy packed lunch or take advantage of our school kitchen, where all children are entitled to a free hot or cold meal.

The end of the school day – The school day finishes at 3.10pm for YR and 3.20pm for KS1. Gates are opened at 3.05pm and parents are invited onto the playground to collect their children. Each class has an outside waiting area. Some parents choose to enrol their child in one of our after school activities.


Daily collective worship or assemblies form an important part of school life as they provide an opportunity for year groups and key stages to share a common interest and an awareness of the school as a family community. They play an important part in shaping children's understanding of themselves as citizens and develop consideration for others.
