Our School Day

The School Day begins at 8:50 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. 


A member of 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.
