Our School Day

The school day begins at 9:00am and ends at 3:15pm.  Children should arrive at school between 8:45am and 8:55am to be on time for registration at 9:00am.


Break time is at 10:30am for KS1 children & 10:45am for KS2 children for 15 minutes.


Lunch break is between 12.00pm-1.00pm.  KS1 children eat their lunch in the main hall from 12:00pm until 12:30pm and KS2 children eat their lunch from 12:30pm until 1:00pm.


Total weekly hours:  32.25

Each class receives 5 hours of teaching time per day, totaling 25 hours per week.

*New government guidance stipulates that all mainstream state-funded schools should be open for a minimum of 32.5 hours a week from September 2023.*



Collective Worship [often referred to as School Assembly] is legally required to take place every school day and ‘shall be wholly or mainly of a broadly Christian character’ (1988 Education Act).

It is generally accepted that Collective Worship should provide pupils with space for reflection and/or should be evocative and challenging. In Collective Worship we explore a range of different ‘themes’ which help our children to understand and appreciate the diverse nature of the world in which we live. 

In our Collective Worship sessions, through a combination of words, still and moving images, sound, active participation from pupils and well- chosen moments of silence and contemplation we make a unique contribution to pupils’ spiritual and moral development and more generally to a positive school ethos.
