Our School Day

Respect           Resilience        Responsibility 

Our school day is organised to provide maximum time for learning across a balanced curriculum.

Opening and closing times


8.30 - School gates open

8.45 - Registration starts

8.55 - Registration end

3:15 - End of school day for years 2, 3, 4,5 and 6

In a typical week we are open for a total of 32.5 hours.

The 32.5 hour minimum expectation includes the time in each day from the official start of the school day (i.e. morning registration) to the official end to the compulsory school day (i.e. official home time). The 32.5 hour minimum includes breaks and lunch times as well as teaching time and any extra-curricular activities that all pupils are expected to attend. It does not include optional before or after-school provision.

Attendance matters!


We are committed to encouraging children to attend school regularly and on time. Research shows that there is a direct link between good attendance and achievement in school. Poor attendance can have a direct effect on attainment and future life chances. It is vital that good habits start when children are young. For more about attendance please click here.
