Progress Through Partnership


Our School Day

The school day starts at 8.50am and finishes at 3.15pm.  Registration is from 8.50am to 9.00am.

Morning Nursery is from 8.40-11.40am and Afternoon Nursery is from 12.30-3.30pm. We work closely with Acorns Nursery, collecting and delivering children from there.

Morning playtimes

KS1 children have morning playtime from 10.20 - 10.40am, following morning assembly from 10.00-10.20am.                                                                                                                 KS2 children have morning playtime from 10.00 - 10.20am, followed by morning assembly from 10.20-10.40am.   


Children in Reception, Y1 and Y2 have lunch from 12.00 - 1.00pm. Y3 – Y6 children begin their break at 12.15pm and end at 1.15pm.

Afternoon playtime

KS1 pupils may have an afternoon playtime.

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 (eg you are delayed or another person is collecting your child) please let us know.  This avoids any confusion or upset.

Getting to school

To get to and from school, walking is definitely the best option! 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 safely and responsibly. Please avoid blocking residents driveways or parking in their designated spaces.
