Typical School Day
The school doors are open from 8.30 - 9am, with lessons starting at 9.00am. Parents are allowed to park outside the school for 10 minutes whilst dropping off their children.
The first lesson is usually numeracy or literacy which lasts until break time at 10.40am. Children then join other classes and have the chance to catch up with friends whilst enjoying a drink and a piece of fruit, brought in from home.
At 11.00am lessons start again and continue until lunch at 12.15pm. All children bring their own packed lunch, which we ask to be of a healthy nature. At 12.45pm the whole school goes into the Charterhouse Square garden for forty minutes playtime.
The afternoon sessions are usually dedicated to sports, the arts or humanities.
Hometime is staggered between 3.10 and 3.30pm to ease congestion and to ensure that each child goes home with the correct adult.
There is no school uniform although we do ask for sensible shoes and clothing to be worn on PE days. Please ensure that all your child's clothing is named.
Classrooms are colour coded as follows:-
Green Room - rising 4 years
Red Room - rising 5 years
Yellow Room - rising 6 years
Blue Room - 6/7 years
Rainbow & Raindrop Rooms - 7/8 years
Balloon & Kite Rooms - 8/9 years
Star Room - 10/11 years
The ages given are guidelines only. When deciding on a year group, the school's policy is to look at the child's ability as opposed to their date of birth. Any child who is performing academically and socially above expectations has the opportunity to skip a class (subject to a place being available).
