Times of the school day

For all of our children, the doors open in the mornings at 8.45am and registers close at 8.55am. The children are expected to be in school before the registers close. All lessons start at 9.00. Children come into school to calm and relaxing music in their classrooms to help them focus on their morning task during registration. The end of the day times are slightly staggered, to enable families with more than one child to collect them with ease. Please see below for details.


The children are in school for 6.5 hours daily which is a total of 32.5 hours each week.
