The School Day

The school is open for Breakfast Club at 7.45am for those children who are booked in to this facility. Entrance to the Out of School Club is on Milford Road. For further details about the club see their website www.avenueclub.org.uk

The main gates to the school are opened at 8.30am every morning by the Head Teacher. Pupils should aim to arrive at this time. In the case of inclement weather, pupils will be asked to go straight in to school. If the weather is fine, pupils wait until 8.40am for the first whistle [everybody stands still] and on the second whistle proceed into school by the year group entrances.

We are happy for Year 3 Parents to accompany their child to the classroom in their first term of joining the school but from then on we ask they follow the procedure in the other year groups which is to allow their children to go into class and school by themselves, as we start lessons straight away.

The daily timetable is as follows

8.30 – 8.40 Arrival
8.45 – 9.00 Registration & focused activity time
9.00 – 9.30 Assembly/Class working time/Choir (depending on day)
9.30 – 10.15/10.35 Lesson time

10.15 – 10.30
(Yrs 3 & 4)

10.35 – 10.50
(Yrs 5 & 6)

Morning break – healthy snack time!

12.00 – 1.00
(Yrs 3 & 4)

12.30 – 1.30
(Yrs 5 & 6)

Lunch break
2.00 – 2.15 Afternoon break for Yrs 3 & 4 – re-energise the brain!
3.15 End of school day

The school gates will be unlocked at 3.05 p.m. If you need to go into school before 3.15p.m, please use the Mildford Road entrance. All other entrances to the school are locked for safety.

We are very happy for parents to come and collect their children from school – in fact we encourage it! Again, if you would like to speak to your child’s teacher, they will normally be available for a short time at the end of the day.

We also ask that you observe our rules on not cycling, skateboarding or scootering in the playground at any time. We also discourage football before and after school due to the safety of all children coming into and leaving the premises.

The main school gates are locked at 3.30 p.m. to allow the After School Club to use the playground safely.

Thank you for your support!
