The School Day

The Beginning of the Day

 8.00 am Breakfast Club opens. You can pay for a block or choose days when you need us. £2 a day and free for pupils eligible for the Pupil Premium.

 8.40 am Our playground is open and is supervised by an adult. This helps to stagger the traffic on Moss Park Road and enable parents to drop any siblings off here before taking them round to Moss Park Infants, which starts a little later.

 8.50am The school whistle is blown and the children line up. Their teachers bring them immediately into school to do reading, challenges and pre-learning activities. Years 3 and 4 enter via the Lower School playground door. Years 5 and 6 enter through the Upper School playground door at the rear of the building.

Once the classes have gone in, the gate is locked by the Site Manager. Latecomers should enter through the front school office, where they will have to be signed into the Late Book.

8.55 am The register is taken. Children not in classrooms by the time the register is taken are marked Late.

Children who arrive after 9.30 am are given a ‘late after registers close’ mark, which counts as an unauthorised absence.  The school monitors the number of late marks a child receives and will notify the School’s Educational Welfare Officer of concerns.

The school day is normally organised as follows:

8.55 am – 10.00 am                      First lesson

10.00 am – 10.15 am                    Assembly

10.15 am – 10.30 am                    Morning Break

2.30 pm – 2.40 pm                        Afternoon Break

2.40 pm – 3.30 pm                        Afternoon session 2

3.30pm                                          School finishes

The End of the Day


Parents may wait for their children on our playground from 3.20 pm, when the gate is opened and supervised by the Site Manager. The children leave school at 3.30 pm from the same doors that they entered from and line up with their teacher on their playground base to be collected by you. Teachers are on duty until 3.40 pm should parents require a quick word or to make an appointment.

Pupils have written permission to walk home have a special button badge to show the Staff on Gate Duty and without this badge, we don't leave them leave the grounds without an adult/older agreed & named sibling.

All children are taken back into school in the event of the appropriate person not being there to meet them by 3.40 pm. Parents and carers who are late need to sign their pupil out in the ‘Late Pickup’ book. Parents and carers are requested to ensure their child is collected at 3.30pm punctually, please.
