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 to use all the available facilities, such as the 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
School staff take responsibility for the children from 8.30am until 3.15pm. Parents/carers are asked not to send children to school before 8.30am as children will be unsupervised.
