Our School Day
School is open for a total of 31.25 hours per week.
Our school day starts with a drop off period from 8:40 am - 9:00 am each day. Children are expected to be in school on time and ready to start at 9:00 am when the register will be taken.
The morning is typically made up of English and Maths and the afternoons are typically when the foundation subjects are taught.
On a Tuesday afternoon we have a specialist teaching afternoon. Mr Parker teaches PE across the school, Miss Mill teaches computing across the school and Miss Lodge teaches music across the school.
On a Wednesday morning, all three classes have an hour long PE lesson with an external coach through EPC. For more information about EPC you can visit their website: EPC
For one day a week, each class has a curriculum day centered around either history, geography or science. This allows in-depth coverage of these subjects and supports our children with gaining the necessary skills and knowledge. The day on which this takes place varies from class to class. You can find out more information at Curriculum Days
On a Friday morning, one year group take part in a forest school session run by Mrs Norris in Berwickhall woods. Each year, years 2, 4, 6 and reception are given the opportunity to take part in a forest school course.
Below is an example timetable that may be used. Each classes timetable is slightly different, so if you would like more information, please contact the school office.
