School Day

The school day is from 8.45am to 3.15pm.

Children must not arrive at the school gates unaccompanied before 8.45am.

Teaching hours

Each day is split into three sessions, two in the morning and one in the afternoon.

The total hours in the school day is 6.5 hours. This totals 32.5 hours in a school week. 




Parents who bring their children to school by car are reminded that parking or waiting in the prohibited (yellow lined) area in front of the school endangers the children and breaks the law. We ask parents not to park on the grass verge opposite the school.



The school currently provides an excellent hot midday meal service. 
The three week menu is on our school meals page which can be accessed here, and is also available from the school office.  Baked potatoes and fresh baguettes are also available. 
Payment for such meals should be made by Monday mornings  paid via Parent -Pay
