The Outline of the Day
We operate an ‘unusual school day! We started to run a staggered start during the Covid-19 pandemic, to better facilitate social distancing. Feedback from our community told us that this was popular, particularly that the option of an earlier drop-off was helpful to families. As educators, we found value in the additional time that children were in school, to offer catch-up tuition, extra support, pastoral time and more.
So… our school day runs as follows:
08:15 – Gates open
08:25 First bell, children present go to class for register and to start learning
08:40 Second bell, children present go into class for register and to start learning (by 8:45)
09:00 Registers close
15:30 End of the school day
Breaks In The Day
All children have an hour for dinner. The exact time varies from phase to phase.
All children have two 15 minute playtimes, morning and afternoon. Again, exact timings vary from phase to phase.
