Respect. Persevere. Achieve.

Our School Day

For some children our school day begins at 7.45 when they arrive at our Breakfast Club.  

At 8.45 our doors are open and we are ready to start learning at 8.50am - straight into our lessons.

Children head to one of our four classes - Class 1 (Pre-school and Reception), Class 2 (Years 1 and 2), Class 3 (Years 3 and 4),  Class 4 (Year 5) and Class 5 (Year  6).



During the school day, as well as taking part in their lessons, we also have lots of other things which we enjoy:


School Worship
Daily worship happens every day and is led by teachers, our worship leaders, sometimes Rev. Kat or even sometimes visitors.  We welcome parents to join us in our sharing assemblies throughout the year, including special festivals and at the end of term. On a Friday we have a special celebration worship where we get to share how we have shown our Values throughout the week. We also find out who our Stars of the Week are: people who have been showing our Christian Values. 


As a C of E school, our values are promoted across the school day, as well as in worship. 


Break Time
We have a 15 minute morning break when we have fun in our playground and field and eat our snacks. We are an Opal School, and are developing our outdoor areas, play equipment and activities.
Snacks and School ilk
All infant (R,Y1,& Y2) pupils receive a free piece of fruit or vegetable through the nutritional fruit and vegetable scheme. Junior pupils can also join the scheme at a nominal cost. All pupils are encouraged to bring healthy snacks. Milk is also available to all pupils and is free for those in in reception until their 5th birthday. Milk can be ordered through the Cool Milk scheme.


The whole school comes together for an hour at lunch time, our children socialise with others of all ages as they eat their lunch, with the older children helping the younger ones. Children in Year 6 have a buddy from Reception, and really enjoy helping them when they are at school. 
School Dinners
Our meals are cooked on site by local provider, Cater Cater. Children have a choice of 2 healthy hot meals for £2.35 per day. All children in Reception, Year 1 & Year 2 are entitled to receive these meals free of charge. Children whose parents are in receipt of income report can also receive free school meals in any year group.  Click here for our current menu choices. 
Packed Lunches
Children may bring a packed lunch if they prefer. All children eat their lunch, hot or cold in the school hall.
Swimming Pool

We are lucky to have our own outdoor heated swimming pool. In the summer term 2 every child swims every day for half an hour. We have a swimming pool committee who raise funds towards the running of the pool and ensure it is always ready for action.



We have excellent facilities for sport, a large playing field and playground, as well as gymnastic equipment in the school hall. Children are taught sport and exercise as a necessary part of a healthy lifestyle. Qualified sports coaches often work with all classes. We take part in many local sporting events, such as cross country running, tag rugby, swimming gala and multi sports.


Budding Musicians

We have many visiting music teachers, and our children are offered opportunities to enjoy piano and guitar lessons. These lessons are taught by external music teachers, paid for by parents. We feel that the teaching of music develops pupils ability to listen and appreciate a wide variety of music. 

Class 1 finish  at 3:10pm, classes 2,3 and 4 at 3:15pm. The end of the day, or is it?

After School 

 Extra-Curricular Clubs

Children are welcome to attend a number of after school clubs run at the school by staff, sports coaches, parents and community volunteers.  These are from the end of the school day until 4pm.  These change every term and children can choose which clubs they would like to attend at the beginning of the term.


After School Club

 For those children who need additional time in school we have provision after school which is paid for at £7.00 a session.  This is available until 5.00pm.  Click here for further information.
