Our School Day

  • Our curriculum - Early Years Foundation
Nursery & Reception - WILLOWS (Dolinského) 

The school day begins at 8:15 but children can be dropped off from 8:05. We have flexibility with the drop off time to allow for siblings to be taken to Peknikova first. We also have an option for early drop off at Dolinskeho from 7:50, but this must be by arrangement with the class teachers as we have a limit to the number of children we can cater for at this time.

All the children go outside by 10:30 to play.

In Nursery children have access to snacks until 10:45, lunch is served at 12 o’clock after which there is an option for children to sleep. All children have 60 minutes for lunch and playtime. 

The normal school day finishes at 14:45, when children are offered a bus pickup. Other children are offered an end-of-day snack and can stay in our after school Rockets club between 14:45-16:45 (Monday – Thursday) and 14:45-15:45 on Friday.

Parents should notify staff if their child will be staying after school, indicating what time their child will be picked up, to ensure we have the appropriate number of staff available.

Years 1 & 2 - MAPLES (Pekníkova 4)

All children are expected to be in class by 08:05. Children arriving with their parents or an older sibling can be accompanied between 7:50 and 8:05, ready to be in their classes for 8:15. After hanging up their coats and changing their shoes, they will be supervised upstairs in the club room before school starts. Children arriving on the bus will be taken to the Maples by a member of staff or school prefect, it is a short walk from the car park where the bus comes, across the Y 4/5/6 playground to get to the new building. 

Children who arrive after 8:20 will need to come through the front office at Peknikova as the doors will close at 8:20. 

Morning Snack and Playtime (30 min) 10:15 – 10:45
All students have a morning break where they eat snack and then have the opportunity to play outside.  All children will finish their snack and go outside by 10:30 as we believe it is essential to have fresh air and a morning play outside. 

Lunch and Playtime (60 min) 12:00 – 13:15
All students have 60 minutes for lunch and playtime. A hot school lunch is provided or students can bring their own packed lunch. Children in Year 1 and 2 will have their lunch in the Maples. 

End of the day

Parents are invited to collect Year 1 and Year 2 children from their classrooms in the Maples from 14:45, so they can then collect older children from the playground or younger children from Nursery afterwards. There is also an after school care facility ‘Rockets’ that runs from 14:45 until 15:45. Parents should notify teachers if their child will be staying after school, indicating what time their child will be picked up, to ensure we have the appropriate number of staff available to supervise. Children can also be signed up to one of our enrichment clubs.
