The school day begins at 8.45am for KS2 and 8.50am for KS1. A member of staff is on duty from 8.35am / 8.40am in the playground.
The registers will close at 9.00am in the morning and 1.15pm after lunch.
Morning breaks are:-
Key Stages One and Two: 10.40 – 10.55am
School closes at 3.00pm for Key Stage One and 3.10pm for Key Stage Two children.
The children are cared for during the lunch break by midday supervisors. Children can either choose to have a healthy school meal provided by the Local Food Links Organisation or bring in a packed lunch. All children eat their lunch in the hall at various times in the lunch hour.
Free school meals are available for children whose parents receive Income Support. Please contact the School Office if you need further details or call Dorset County Council Direct on 01305 22100 or logon to: http://www.dorsetforyou.com/369746.
Any child who is not collected at the end of the school day for any reason is encouraged to return to their class teacher or to go to the School Office and wait for their parents. We ask you to contact us if you have a problem in collecting your child by the correct time.
Punctuality is a very important lesson for life. Please ensure that your child is here before the start of the school day. If for any reason, your child is late, please explain the reason to the class teacher and make sure you notify the School Office, so that the register can be altered accordingly.
There are approximately 23.5 teaching hours in our normal school week. This excludes statutory daily acts of collective worship, registration and morning and lunchtime breaks.
