Timing of the School Day

The school week is Monday to Friday.

The day is organised in 15 minute slots, giving flexibility to tailor the day for different stages of the students' education.

All students and staff are expected to be on site throughout the school day, from 08:00 to 15:30, Monday to Friday, during term time. Staff have additional contractual non-contact days devoted to training, preparation and clearing up.


Preschool operates from 08:00 to 15:15 and includes a morning snack, a lunch break and indoor and outdoor play sessions as appropriate and according to the weather.

The routine includes circle time, songs, morning and afternoon snacks, structured play, music, PE or dance, lunch, phonics, self-initiated play and story time.
