Children are able to be dropped off at school between 8:30 - 8:45am. In Reception and Key Stage 1 parents are able to take their children to the doors of the classroom, arriving via the back of the school. When the children move into KS2 they are expected to come into school by themselves with parents dropping them off at the front of the building. Mississippi Class enter by the main entrance door and Waikato Class enter by the door at the front of the school which leads directly into their classroom. This is to aid congestion in our narrow corridors.
The register is taken at 8:45am. Children arriving after this time will need to be signed in at the school office and the children taken into class by a member of the admin team.
The main focus for the lessons throughout the morning are Maths and English and usually a reading session before lunch at 12pm.
All children have a play break during the morning. During this time children are able to have a healthy snack - we encourage children in KS2 to bring in a healthy snack from home. KS1 children will have a portion of fruit/veg provided for them.
The children will then resume their learning until 12:00pm when lunch time starts. Lunch ends at 1:00pm.
During the afternoon children will be involved in a variety of different lessons including theme based art, geography, history and science. Throughout the year different classes will also have the opportunity to work with specialist sports coaches and Reception and KS1 will spend a term each swimming at Calne Leisure Centre. The younger classes usually have a short break in the afternoon to fit in with the timing of the activities they are involved in.
The school day ends at 2:55pm for Reception and Key Stage 1 and 3:00pm for Key Stage 2 children. Younger children are collected from the main playground at the rear of the school and older children are collected from the front playground. We ask that parents inform us if someone different is collecting their child as we only release the children to the expected adult.
We have a variety of after school clubs which usually run from 3:00-4:00pm. Please see the School Clubs page for more information.
