The School Day

 

The children are expected to be in the playground at 8.30, with some of the school buses arriving prior to this time. At 8.40 the whistle blows and the children line up in classes ready for our daily Wake and Shake routine, ready to start the school day.

The academy operates wrap around care from 7:30am until 6pm - please see the 'Energy Kidz' and Pre-School pages for further information about the wrap around care options. We also offer a range of after-school clubs running from 3:00pm until 4:00 pm - please contact the school office for more information or view the 'clubs' page of this website. 
All children have a morning break which begins at 10:45.  Lunch is for an hour between 12 and 1pm.

A morning snack of fruit and/or vegetables is provided for children until they reach the end of Year 2. From Year 3, children are asked to bring in their own healthy morning snack.


There are four assemblies every week:

Monday - Whole School worship, led by the head teacher

Tuesday - Singing assembly
