The School Day

The School Day:

School begins at 8:45am and ends at 3:15pm with 75 minutes for breaks and lunch. 

Registration in the morning is from 8:45 to 8:50am.

Clubs are on offer, free of charge, for Year 1 pupils on a Monday from 3:25 to 4:25pm. These are not intended for child care and could be cancelled at short notice. 

* Until October half term, while we have only one gate for entry/exit to the school we are operating a staggered start and Year 1 are starting and finishing school 10 minutes later (8:55 start, 3:25 finish). 



We encourage children to remain at school and enjoy the school meals which are nutritionally balanced and always offer a choice. Our meals are provided by Juniper Catering and are prepared offsite at the Town Hall. Menus are available from the school office and on the website. Currently in Newham, school meals are free to all primary aged pupils. Parents must notify the school on admission of any allergies and dietary requirements. 


Punctuality and Attendance:

It is essential that your child arrives promptly at school every day, ready to learn. Children who are late are likely to miss out on crucial knowledge and teaching which makes learning more difficult for them. In addition, regular routines enhance children's sense of security and foster good habits for later life. 

Children should attend school every day of term time unless they are too ill to do so. There are termly and annual awards for 100% attendance. 

Holidays must be taken during scheduled school holidays and parents who take their children on holiday during term time will incur a fine.
