A Typical Day at School

The school is open from 8.00am with a flexible drop off time until 8.55am, when the children are registered. Parents are able to drop off freely between these times and have access to the dedicated Parents’ Lounge where they can grab a coffee, speak to teachers or chat to other parents.

The children have a busy morning, going to assembly with the whole school before taking part in their daily literacy lesson. After a half an hour break for playtime and a snack, they return to their classroom for a numeracy lesson.
