Our School Day

The school day starts at 8.50am and finishes at 3.20pm for EYFS and KS1 children, and 3.25pm for KS2 children. The school gate opens at 8.30am and children should all be on the playground before 8.50am. The school office opens at 8.50am.

Drop-off and Collection

At the beginning of the day parents are asked to leave their children at the school gate.

At pick-up parents are asked to come onto the playground and collect their children from their classes.


The school is divided into two morning playtime sessions, one between 10.20 – 10.40am and the other between 10.40 – 11am.


Lunchtime is from 12noon – 1pm and all children have their lunch in the dining room.

Getting to School

Getting to and from school, walking is definitely the best option. But if travelling by car please park in the short term car park (outside the town hall) or in the long term car park at Station Yard (behind the Abbey); charges do not apply until 9am.

Please do not park outside the school, this area is for disabled access only. Please do not park in the areas opposite the school, as this is a safety hazard for pedestrians along with other road users and we need to respect nearby residents and parking regulations. We also have bike-racks just inside the school gate for bicycles and scooters.
