The School Day

Below you can see the outline to a typical KS1 and KS2 school day

KS1 children arrive at school via the side gate at the top of Cullen View and enter via the side door by the library at 8.45am (our Reception children have their own front door!).

For KS2 staff and children from Kids Club use the playground from 8.30am so there is adult supervision for this space from this time onwards. If you send your children to school BEFORE 8.30am they are not yet the school’s responsibility and could, potentially be at risk on an unsupervised open space. KS2 doors open at 8.45am and the bell for the start of registration sounds at 8.55am.

For our early birds we run a popular Breakfast Club, more details of which can be found under 'Our School'/'Kids Club'.

Collective Worship

Collective Worship is daily requirement in all schools and assemblies take place at 2:45 each day to ensure valuable core subject learning, morning maths and English, is not affected by the time taken out to attend assembly. The exception to this is Friday assembly which takes place at 1pm and is led by Mrs McNamara.
 
The weekly Celebration Assembly is every Monday at 2.45pm. Parents of children receiving celebration awards will be texted via the school office the preceding Friday so they are able to attend the celebration and watch their child receive the award.
 
Children in Reception Class attend the celebration assembly on Monday and the singing assembly on Tuesday.
 
 

A Reminder to Parents

You are encouraged to talk to your child’s teacher if you have any concerns whatsoever. If you feel that your concerns have not been addressed then, at that point, you might want to make an appointment to see Head of School Miss Deanne Carden. If you still feel that your issue or concern has not been dealt with then please make an appointment to talk to Executive Principal, Mrs McNamara.
 
It is not reasonable to expect a teacher to talk to parents first thing in the morning as they are busy preparing the classroom for learning. Teachers are more able to talk briefly at the end of the school day. If you want a longer conversation then please make an appointment through the school office. Due to the change to Collective Worship times there are now 2.45pm appointment opportunities for each teacher.
