The School Day

10.40am – Children bring in fruit each day (the Government provide fruit for EYFS and KS1) which is eaten just before break begins.

10.45am – Break. We have a magnificent play trail which is used enthusiastically during play-times, a large field for summer play and a hard playground for wet days, a quiet area for quiet play with playground buddies helping during wet play.

11.00am – Session Two begins.

12 noon – lunch – There are clubs during the lunch time to further enrich your child’s day and children are encouraged to bring in a healthy packed lunch.

1.00pm – Session Three begins.

3.15pm – Home time. Children from outlying villages are taken home by bus or taxi.
We have a close liaison with Lower Covey, a Montessori nursery in Yetminster which take some children from school for their after school sessions.

To ease traffic congestion we ask that children arrive at school between 8.40 am and 8.55 am. Any children arriving after 9.00 am will be marked as late or absent. Please telephone the school office to report an absence from school before 8.45 am on the morning of the absence.

The staff car park is closed between 3.00 pm and 3.45 pm to ensure the safety of our children leaving at the end of the school day.  Please park on the surrounding roads with consideration for our local residents.

If you need to leave your car for any reason, please ensure that you park in a marked bay and not on the yellow hatch markings as this creates a safety risk to our children.
