Our School Day

Day to Day Organisation of our School

Our school is arranged in horizontal year groups:

  • 3 - 5   years old - Early Years
  • 5 - 6   years old - Year 1
  • 6 - 7   years old - Year 2
  • 7 - 8   years old - Year 3
  • 8 - 9   years old - Year 4
  • 9 - 10 years old - Year 5
  • 10-11  years old - Year 6

It is the school’s aim to continue with this arrangement but if numbers in years groups fall, vertical (mixed age) grouping may be necessary.

The timetable is arranged so that during the course of the week each class has the opportunity of utilising all the available facilities, such as the computer room, hall and library.

The daily routine for pupils is as follows:

  • School begins - 8.40am
  • Morning break - 10.30am – 10.45am
  • Staggered Lunch - 11.45 – 12.45 (EY & KS1) 12.00am – 1.00pm (KS2)
  • School finishes - 3.05pm
