Our School Day

 Our school day is as follows:

8.55am The school day begins and the register is taken
10.45 - 11.00am Morning Playtime
12.05 - 1.05pm Lunchtime
2.00 - 2.15pm Afternoon Playtime
3.15pm The school day ends
3.30pm Gates are locked

The total hours of teaching are 22 hours and 30 minutes per week.

We encourage children to be punctual because:

  • it teaches children that it is important to be on time
  • it gives the children opportunity to start their day calmly with a chosen activity
  • it avoids the emotional stress that children feel when they are late into class
  • it does not disrupt school

Children who are on time have better opportunity to engage happily in learning.

Children who are on time experience and build stronger friendship circles.
