The school day
The school office is open for enquiries from 8.30am – 3.15pm Monday to Friday. It would be most helpful if parents could make telephone calls or personal enquiries between these hours.
Children arrive at school between 8.20 am and 8.30 am and are allowed into the classrooms at 8.20am. The register opens at 8.30am and closes at 8.45 am. If you child arrives between 8.30am and 8.45am they will be coded as late (L) if they arrive after 8.45am they will be coded as arriving after the register has closed (U) which is an unauthorised absence.
There is a mid-morning break at 10.15 am- 10.30 am when the children play outside (weather permitting). Assembly takes place Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 10am - 10.15am. On a Monday we have Celebration Assembly at 2.30pm. Reverend Hilary comes in fortnightly, usually on Tuesdays. Also, we have ‘Open The Book’ several times a term. Lunchtime is between 12.00 pm and 1.00 pm. Children can bring a packed lunch or have a school lunch (these are provided by Portlock's Pantry). Universal Infant Meals are provided for all KS1 children.
The children are in two classes:
Class 1 – Reception, Yr1 and Yr2
Class 2 – Yr3, Yr4, Yr5 and Yr6
Afternoon school starts at 1.00 pm. The school day ends at 2.45 pm. At the end of the day parents are asked to meet the children in the playground. We run various after school clubs, which are changed each term.
At 8.20 am children may be dropped off at school and come straight into class.
The register is taken at 8.30 am
School finishes at 2.45pm
