The School Day

The school is open for Breakfast Club at 7.45am for those children who are booked into this facility. Entrance to the Out of School Club is on Milford Road, next to Peapod Pre-School.  For further details about the club see their website Set Your Sights Avenue Junior School

The main and side gates to the school are opened at 8.30am every morning by senior members of staff.  Children are expected to arrive between 8.30am and 8.45am.   The school gates are closed at 8.50am to allow the last few parents/carers out.  Upon arrival, children should go straight to their classrooms. 

In the afternoon, the school gate is opened at 3.10pm and children are led out to the playground by their teachers at 3.15pm ready for collection.  In the upper year groups, we recognise that many children may walk to/from school by themselves.

Children can attend Set Your Sights after school club from 3.15 – 6.00pm, subject to availability.  More details about this can be found on their website.  Across the year, there will be a variety of other after school clubs that children may be able to attend. The timetable below reflects a ‘normal’ school day.
