Our School Day

Our School Day

We aim to provide a calm and nurturing environment where the children can all thrive and be happy.

The school day commences at 08.45, and the school organises a ‘Walking Bus’ from the village hall at 08.35 every morning. Children can also join Breakfast Club from 7:45am each day.

All pupils have a break in the morning, and Reception and Key Stage 1 children have a break in the afternoon.

At lunch time children can either have sandwiches or a hot school dinner.

The school has strong links with specialist teachers and every week  specialist PE coaches from Premier Sport lead PE, a teacher from Norton Hill teaches the older classes French and a specialist music teacher teaches classes music and whole school singing. At set points in the year children also engage in sessions with theatre teachers from The Egg, where the children then perform their show, and a local artist who supports throughout Arts Week. We also work closely with the Schools Without Walls project in association with The Egg. In 2018 this led to a week-long poetry project in Beech Class.

The school runs a variety of extra-curriculum clubs, usually after school has finished at 15.20. We highly recommend that your child gets involved in these clubs: the more your child puts into school, the more they will get out.
