Registration: From September 2021, years 4, 5 and 6 should be ready to enter school at 8.35 am either via the driveway (year 6) or the main gate. Years 2 and 3 enter the school via the main gate at 8.40 am. Reception and year 1 enter the school via the main gate at 8.45 am. Any children who are late for their entrance time will need to wait until 8.45 am before coming into school.
Typical morning routine: KS1 children will spend part of the morning learning Phonics and also focussing on English and Maths. For KS2 children, this time will also typically be used for the teaching and learning of English and Maths.
Morning break: The children have a morning snack before going outside to play. Please provide fruit (dried or fresh) or raw vegetables for them to eat at this time.
Lunchtimes: All children in Acorn, Magnolia and Elderberry classes are entitled to a Universal Free School Meal. Our school meals are currently provided by The Pollen Partnership. Dinners for KS2 children can be booked and paid for via your ParentMail account. Alternatively, you are welcome to provide your child with a healthy, packed lunch. Please do not include any products containing nuts as we have a child with a nut allergy in school. Together with the School Council we have produced a useful 'Healthier Packed Lunches' leaflet that clarifies what items can and cannot be included in packed lunches.
Typical afternoon routine: The children will spend time involved in topic work (e.g. science, art, music). They will also take part in PE twice a week and have opportunities to visit the school library to choose and exchange books. Children in Acorn, Magnolia and Elderberry receive a free piece of fruit or vegetable as part of the ‘Fruit for School’ scheme. You may also wish your child to have milk each day. This is provided through ‘Cool Milk’ and is free to children under five (www.coolmilk.com).
Security at the end of the day: At 3.05 pm, years 4, 5 and 6 will be lined up in the playground ready to be picked up. Please follow the one way system entering through the KS1 gate and leaving via the Peace Garden and driveway. Years 2 and 3 leave at 3.10 pm and Reception and year 1 at 3.15 pm. The children will be dismissed one at a time to the adult collecting them.
