The school security gate is locked at 8.55am. Any children arriving at school after this time, need to sign in at the school office, and enter the school through the main door.

 

Worship

This takes place in the school hall at different times in the week. Monday, Tuesday and Thursday 2pm, Wednesday 9.00am and Friday is family worship at 2.45 pm

 

Morning Break

 Reception (Hedgehogs)

In the first term, the Hedgehogs do not have a set break time, and when they do, they will use their outdoor playground. Usually, at some point during the spring term, the Hedgehog class will join year 1 and 2 on the bigger playground for morning and afternoon play. This happens when we feel the cohort of children are ready, and consequently, could be at any point in the spring term.

Years 1 and 2 (Squirrels and Badgers)  

Morning break is from 10.25-10.40. Toast is available for the children to buy during this time. Healthy snacks can be brought in from home for the children to eat at this time also.

Years 3and 4 (Deer and Owl)

Morning break is from 10.40-10.55. Toast is available for the children to buy during this time. Healthy snacks can be brought in from home for the children to eat at this time also.
