The School Day


Starting and Finishing times

08:40 to 15:15


This amounts to 32 hours and 55 minutes per week.



FS - 11.45 to 12.45

KS1 - 12.00 to 13.00

KS2 - 12.00 to 13.00 


Drop-off and collection

At the beginning and end of the school day, parents are encouraged into the playground. This helps to build up a close relationship between home and school – we want to have good links with all parents. If normal arrangements have to be altered (e.g. you are delayed or another person is collecting your child) please let us know by ringing the school office. 


In the morning the Chaucer Road and Milton Road gates will be unlocked at 08:40 to allow children and parents to enter the site. At 08:50 the gates will be closed and locked and entrance thereafter is only possible via the Byron Road gate.


At the end of the school day, the Chaucer Road and Milton Road gates will be unlocked and opened at 15:15, allowed parents and carers onto site for collection.
