The School Day (timings)

Doors open to pupils at 8.45am


Learning begins as soon as the children come into school.  Each morning, teachers provide morning activities which may include handwriting, skill practice or an opportunity to reflect on feedback from the previous day's learning.  It is vital therefore that children arrive at school on time so they are able to settle into the school day calmly and do not miss these valuable learning opportunities.
