Your child’s day at school begins at 8:40am and finishes at 3:10pm. This amounts to 32.5 hours per week in school.  Morning registration is an important part of the day. This is when the teacher will explain important instructions to the children about the school day.  It is vital all children arrive on time to ensure that they have had all the information the teacher shares. 

Each day there will be timetabled literacy, numeracy and reading times, which use whole class teaching and appropriate group tasks.

We follow schemes of work to ensure a broad, balanced curriculum, where there is continuity and progression designed to allow each child to attain their full potential, the subjects we teach follow the national curriculum, and we endeavour to teach these subjects with an emphasis on being fun and interesting, whilst not forgetting to make them challenging.

“Pupils enjoy interesting activities which bring their learning to life. They behave well and have lovely manners".
