The School Day

Children are welcomed onto the playground from 8.30am when there will be a member of staff on duty to supervise them.  The classroom doors are opened at 8.40am for the children to go in to their classrooms to begin the day.  The registers are taken at 8.45am and the children’s learning begins.

The children have a 15 minute break during the morning and children in Foundation Stage and Key Stage One are provided with a piece of fruit as a snack as part of a government initiative.  Children in Key Stage Two may bring a piece of fruit to eat.

Lunchtime is from 12.00 – 1.00pm

The school day ends at 3.00pm and parents are asked to wait in the playground where they will meet the children as they leave school.

Some children travel to and from school using the bus provided from the neighbouring village of Didmarton and information regarding this service is available from the Gloucestershire County Council website http://www.gloucestershire.gov.uk
