Foundation Stage 1
Sessions for Foundation Stage 1 children (Nursery) run from 8.45a.m – 11.45a.m or 12.15 – 3.15p.m. Monday to Friday. Children attend either session all year. A facility exists for a fixed number of children to attend full days. If eligible for funding, parents may take advantage of a full 30hrs provision if their child attends our Nursery, where places exist. Foundation Stage 1 has it’s own entrance to the left of the main entrance of school. Parents are welcome to join in the first task of the day when dropping off a child for their session.
Foundation Stage 2 and Key Stage 1 (Year 1 and 2)
Doors open at 8:45am and registration is at 8:55am. A morning task is available for all children and parents are welcome to come in and support their children with this in FS1 to Y3 (Y2 and Y3 - during the Autumn term, FS and Y1 – all year). Year 1 enter through their classroom doors and FS2 and Y2 enter through the old entrance.
Lessons begin at 9:00am and finish for lunch at 11:45am. During the morning, there is a scheduled break of 15 minutes for Years 1 and 2. Foundation Stage children have access to their outdoor space at various times during the day but due to the nature of their curriculum, do not have scheduled ‘break’ as such. Afternoon lessons resume at 12:40pm and the school day finishes at 3:00pm. Teachers in Years 1 and 2 may decide to take an afternoon break when and if appropriate on the day.
Key Stage 2 (Years 3 to 6)
Doors open at 8:45am and registration is at 8:55am. A morning task is available for all children and parents are welcome to come in and support their children with this in Y3 during the Autumn term. All classes enter through their classroom doors. Lessons begin at 9:00am and finish for lunch at 12:15pm. During the morning, there is a scheduled break of 15 minutes split across the Key Stage so that no more than two year groups are out together. Afternoon lessons resume at 1:10pm and the school day finishes at 3:10pm. Teachers may decide to take an afternoon break when and if appropriate on the day.
It is essential that children arrive on time for each session in order to get off to a prompt start.
Supervision of pupils on school premises is available from 8:40am and, for safety reasons, pupils should not arrive earlier than this. Children who arrive late face great difficulties as the first few minutes set the tone for the rest of the day.
Children are encouraged to drink water during the day. Fresh, chilled water is available to all pupils. Please equip your child with a lidded, named, plastic drinks container for this purpose. Children in the Foundation Stage are provided with free milk and fruit/veg choice daily. Water is also readily available. Free fruit/veg continues until the end of Year 2.
