Our School Day

The school day is structured to encourage routine and familiarity, whilst having the breadth of experiences within it to develop the whole child in all areas of life. Depending on your child’s age the structure of the day will be tailored to meet these needs more readily.

In general the school day starts for all with student registration, during which important messages, instructions and notices might be given out. 

Break times are for food and, of course, fun. However, they also provide opportunities, for students to participate in a number of activities, either a pre-arranged club, or perhaps to get some extra help from a teacher. By varying break times during the day we optimise access to dedicated learning spaces and play and relaxation areas.

Our clubs and activities programme is delivered before, during and after school, and continues at the weekend, making the school a busy and active place to be. 

Timings across our two school sites are organised so that parents who have children of different ages are better able to plan the beginning and end of the school day comfortably.
