Our School Day:
Our Reception Class doors open at 8.45am and parents can come into the classroom with them. This helps the children to settle.
For the rest of the year groups, the school day starts at 8.55am and finishes at 3.15pm. All children line up at 8.55am when a teacher will blow a whistle. They will then be taken into the classroom by their class teacher. Registration is taken at 9.00am.
Children have a morning break from 10.30am – 10.45am.
Monday – Whole school at 10.45am.
Tuesday – Whole school at 10.45am.
Wednesday – KS2 at 9.10am and KS1 at 10.45am
Thursday – Assembly led by a member of St Anne`s Church at 10.45am.
Friday – Whole School Celebration assembly at 9.10am.
Our Reception children come into the Hall first and have lunch at 11.45am. The other children have lunch in year groups on a rota basis starting at 12pm. Lunchtime for all ends at 1.00pm.
KS1 children have an afternoon playtime for around 15 minutes.
Our Reception class do not have an official break as they can access outdoor play throughout the day.
End of the school day:
School finishes at 3.15pm for all children.
Drop-off and collection:
At the beginning and end of the school day, parents are encouraged into the playground. This helps to build a close relationship between home and school – we want to have good links with all parents.
A member of the senior leadership team will be available for a quick chat each morning if there is something a parent would like to ask or clarify.
All class teachers will be in the playground from 9.50am. Parents are more than welcome to ask or clarify things at this point but if more time is required (class teachers need to take their classes inside at 8.55am), an appointment can be made through our school office.
If normal arrangements have to be altered (e.g. you are delayed or another person is collecting your child) please let us know. This avoids any confusion or upset as we will be unable to let your child go if we do not recognise the person picking them up or have not been informed of a change to routine.
Getting to school:
To get to and from school, walking is definitely the best option as the roads become very congested! There are lots of benefits: it’s healthier than travelling by car, it improves the safety of pedestrians and road-users, and it respects nearby residents and parking regulations. If you do need to travel by car, please park wisely and be courteous at all times.
If children are walking to and from school, we must have a signed consent form from parents.
