The School Day

The School Day


Gates open at 8.40am to allow for a soft opening for all children - this reduces congestion within the school building but also reduces congestion on the surrounding roads for our neighbours.  . 


(Year 1 and 2 via entrance on Howlett Hall Road)

(Reception, Years 3 to 6 via entrance on Whickham View)


All children are offered a breakfast bagel upon arrival to class as we recognise that children learn best when they a not hungry.


Lessons begin at 8.50am.


All children have a 15 minute break during the morning session.


The lunch breaks are staggered with all classes having a 55minute lunch break.


Afternoon breaks are 15 minutes for children in Reception to Year 4.  Year 5 and 6 have a 10 minute break.


The school day finishes at 3.20pm for all children.
