Arrival and departure

Children need to arrive in school at about 8.50am and should not arrive before 8.45am unless the children are attending the Early Birds Club which starts at 7.45am. Children should go directly to their classroom and they will be registered at 8.55am. Parents may stay with their children and work along side them on their early morning task until registration.

Lessons finish at 3:10pm. Up to Year 4 all children must be collected by an adult. If there is to be a change of the adult collecting a child then school must be informed. Children should not be collected by anyone under the age of 13 years. From Year 4, particularly the Summer Term, parents start to allow children to independently walk home or to an agreed meeting point. School must be informed in writing if a child is to leave school unaccompanied. 


Mobile phones. Only children arriving at or leaving school unaccompanied should have a mobile phone in school. On arrival in class phones should be taken to the Office for safekeeping until the end of the school day. Parents should remind children not to give their mobile number to others.


Break Times

Morning break time: 15 minutes 10:15am to 10:30am

Pupils may bring a portion of dried or fresh fruit or vegetable to eat at morning break. 

Year R, 1 and 2 children receive free fruit as part of a government initiative

To encourage healthy eating habits we ask that no other type of food is provided for this time in the day. Milk can be ordered at break-time, order forms are available from the school office. Children under 5 years of age receive free milk. 


Lunch times                                                                               


Children may have a school dinner, bring a packed lunch or go home for lunch.  All Children in year R, 1 and 2 are entitled to a free school meal.  School dinners are currently priced at £1.85 per day (subject to termly review).  We ask that all dinner money be sent into class on a Monday in an envelope or tub marked with the child’s name. You may also pay half termly or termly and by cheque. Pupils may be entitled to free school meals.  Further details are available from the school administrator.


Those bringing packed lunches are asked to have their boxes clearly named.  We would ask that parents send their child with a healthy lunch, not including glass bottle, fizzy drinks, sweets or any product containing nuts (in order to protect those of our children who suffer from extreme allergic reactions to nuts)


Lunchtime ancillary staff, all of whom hold a first-aid certificate, supervise the children while they eat and play during the lunch hour.  There are organised games with our Play leader.  A senior member of staff is always on duty at lunchtime.
