The school day
The usual school day:
8.20am The school gates open (the playground is not monitored by staff during this time and children remain the responsibility of parents).
8.30am School starts.
10.30-10.45am Playtime for all children
11.45-12.45 School lunchtime
3.00pm End of the school day
The lesson structure varies between classes; staff are free to design their own timetable based on what will be the most effective learning journey for the pupils. This may mean that some days start with literacy or numeracy, but some may start with art or music! This freedom ensures that the children’s learning needs are considered in every step of the lesson planning process.
