From Tuesday 5th January 2016, we will be opening the doors at 8.45am. At this time children can come straight into school and the doors will close at 8.55am. Our school day starts at 8.55am. By allowing the children to arrive between 8.45-8.55am we hope to ease the traffic and parking issues outside. A teacher will be on duty in the cloakroom to greet children. Reception will come in through their doors as normal but from 8.45am; Nursery opening times remain unchanged.
We do have Skittles breakfast club in the school hall from 7.30am until the start of school if parents need to arrange wrap around childcare – you can find further details here.
Each school day is 5.5 hours in length excluding lunch break. Teaching time amounts to 23 3/4 hours during the normal school week. This includes religious education, but excludes the daily act of collective worship, registration and breaks.
