the school day

Our school day starts at 8:45am with learning beginning at 8:50am, so it's important to make sure that your child is in school for this time. 

Below you can see an example of typical school day in Key Stage 1 or 2. EYFS follow a similar pattern to their day but with shorter focus sessions and more time to access continuous provision. 

Our Nursery, Reception and Year 1 children finish their day at 3:00pm.

Year 2, Year 3, Year 4 and Year 5 finish their day at 3:15pm.

After school a range of clubs are offered to Reception, KS1 and KS2. These run until 4pm.

School finishes at 2pm on a Friday, following the whole Academy celebration assembly.
