The school day begins at 9.00am although we ask children to arrive from 8.40am so that they are able to settle down and begin their learning in the right frame of mind when the whistle blows at 8.55am. Children can play in the playground where there is a teacher on duty from 8.40am, or if it is raining heavily, children can go straight into their classrooms. Parents of reception children are welcome to stay with them until the whistle goes at 8.55am.
|Mornings:||KS1 (Years R-2)||8.55am to 12.15pm|

Children have a choice of: 1. School meal. 2. Packed lunch.
School meals are delivered to school in hot boxes by our school meal provider Zebedee's Lunchbox.
School meal order forms are available from the school office.
Children of parents who receive certain benefits may be entitled to free school meals. More information on this is available from the school office.
The school is divided into 4 classes:
|Foundation Stage||Ash Class: Reception||Children aged 4+ to 5|
|Key Stage 1||Beech Class: Years 1 and 2||Children aged 5/6 to 6/7|
|Key Stage 2||Elm Class: Years 3 and 4||Children aged 7/8 and 8/9|
|Key Stage 2||Oak Class: Years 5 and 6||Children aged 9/10 and 10/11|
Each class takes a varied approach in providing for the mixed ages. Much of the work is individually structured so that children can progress at their own rate. New topics within these subjects are often introduced on a year-group basis, so children can also have the experience of working with their peers. R.E. and foundation subjects are taken with the whole class and learning objectives are differentiated according to ability.
