The following information relates to the time spent in lessons each week. It excludes breaks, registration and assemblies.

Nursery 15 hrs per week

Children enjoy assemblies several times a week. Assemblies follow themes such as healthy eating, walking to school, staying safe, cultural stories, singing and celebration assembly.


The classroom doors open at 8.45 am. Children should not arrive at school before 8.40am as they will not be supervised.  Parents are welcome to bring children into their classrooms and join in with the learning.

There is no parking in the school grounds and the gates are locked to ensure the children’s safety. However, there are drop off parking spaces (half hour parking limit) for the use of parents who are dropping / collecting children. Parents are encouraged to walk to the school in order to reduce congestion and to create a safer environment around the school.

At the end of the day children should be collected from their classroom doors via the school yard areas.

We ask that, if parking in the vicinity of the school, consideration is shown for our neighbours, who require access to their properties at all times.
