The School Day
The Juniors can be dropped off from 8:00am and will be supervised from that time. They go to their classrooms at about 8:20am. The Infants are handed over to their form teachers and teaching assistants from 8:15am.
All children should be in their classrooms by 8.30am when registration is called. There then follows an assembly or a period of form time or DEAR (Drop Everything and Read).
The day continues with two lessons of 40 minutes each, a morning break of 20 minutes followed by another two lessons. The school community eats lunch together at 12.00pm and the children usually are in the playground or on the fields from 12.20pm until 1.00pm.
Afternoon registration is at 1.00pm followed by a form teacher led story time slot before three afternoon lessons. Reception children often take a rest period after lunch (especially at the start of the year) and all Infants have a 20 minute afternoon play. Lessons finish at 3.20 pm and the children then spend ten minutes back with their form teachers when they organise their homework and bag for the end of the school day at 3:30pm.
There are a great many lunchtime and after-school clubs, as well as a small number of pre-school clubs.
The School runs a flexible After School Care scheme for any child from 3.30 pm until 6.00 pm. Children have the opportunity to complete homework tasks, play board games, use the Library or play outside with members of the after school care staff.
