Our Daily Timetable & School Dates

Daily Timetable

School Start Time

It helps children to settle and connect with their friends and teacher if they arrive at least 10 minutes before the 9am start time. 

We encourage children to come to school after 8.30am as their teachers will usually be fully occupied preparing for the day.

Classes should all be unlocked and accessible from 8.30am.

9am - School Starts

10:00am - Fruit and Vegetable Break (5 minutes)

11:00am - Morning Interval. Children are supervised for the first ten minutes as they sit and eat their playlunch

11:30am - School resumes

1:00 pm - Lunch Time. Children are supervised as they sit and eat lunch for ten minutes

1.45pm - School Resumes

3pm - School Finishes

Three teachers are on duty in the playground during morning and lunch intervals. There are also Peer Mediators (Senior children) who support children during morning and lunch intervals too.
