The School Day

The school day starts at 9.00am and ends at 3.00pm. For the older group there is supervised play until 3.20pm.We consider good play opportunities important for the progress, health and happy development of children. There are large open spaces and some natural woodland which are used for games, exploration and den making. There are also purpose built play structures including large climbing frames, rope swings and small play houses. At playtimes children are free to visit friends in other classes. Many children bring their bikes and scooters to school, taking advantage of safe paths. The school has a healthy eating policy and a mainly organic vegetarian lunch, whenever possible from the school garden, is prepared daily in the school kitchen - and children wash up their own things afterwards. Alternatively children can bring a packed lunch. Well organised after school and holiday care is available locally.
