School Day and Timings

Please note:
Because of the continued national restrictions due to COVID-19 and social distancing, staggered start and finish times are in place for infection control and so the usual timings below do not currrently apply.


The start and finish times of our school day are annually reviewed by the Governing Body, who take into account feedback from staff and parents, and government guidelines.

Government guidelines suggest that children should be taught for a certain number of hours per week, depending on their age: 21 hours for pupils aged between five and seven, and 23.5 hours for pupils aged between seven and eleven. This does not include breaks, lunch, registration, or assemblies.

Childcare before and after school is available from local nurseries and child minders in the area.
