Our School Day

The School Day begins at 8:45 am with the doors opening at 8:40. Children come into school for their first session of learning which finishes at 9:00. This first session of the day is vitally important with children reviewing the previous days learning and teaching staff preparing children for the days learning ahead. 


Members of the senior staff will be situated in each of the two play areas from 8:40 am along with individual class staff being available on their doors.
