Our School Day
Our school day starts with the children arriving at 8.45 a.m and going into the playground. We ask parents to leave the playground before we ring the bell and the children line up in their class lines. This ensures the children are calm and ready for the day ahead.
Children then start the day with a variety of literacy based activities, it might be learning spellings, writing a news sentence or reading. In the morning each class will have an English and then a maths lesson.
Every day we either have a class assembly or a whole school assembly in the hall.
Break time is at 10.35 a.m, in between English and maths; this gives children time to let off steam and have some fresh air before they start lessons again.
Lunch is at 12.30 p.m until 1.30 p.m; this is staggered with the younger children going first.
The afternoons vary in content, children will study other curriculum areas and have PE lessons.
We have high expectations for all of our pupils; we expect them to engage in their learning, to support their peers, to have manners and to be polite. We encourage our pupils to be as independent as possible, we develop learning skills and celebrate effort as well as achievement.
For our part we spend time planning stimulating lessons which cater for all children’s needs. We use trips and visitors to enhance learning. We differentiate lessons so all pupil needs are met.
