Please ensure that your child is on the playground only 10 minutes before school starts.  We are not in a position to accept responsibility for children before staff begin their playground duties at 8.50am.  Similarly, please make every effort to meet your child at 3.15pm.  Children will be kept safe in the school entrance if you are unforeseeably delayed. 


Actual ‘teaching time’ each week is 22.5 hours for KS2 pupils and 21 hours for KS1 pupils. *


Worship times last 15 minutes. On Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays we meet together at the end of the school day, and at the beginning of the day on Fridays.


Each class develops its own weekly timetable balancing routine and flexibility. English and Maths lessons are timetabled within the two morning teaching and learning sessions.


Emergency or Early Closure of the School

Very occasionally it becomes necessary to close school earlier than usual in unforeseen circumstances.  Sometimes it happens that bad weather overnight or over the weekend will prevent the school from opening. On such occasions, the Local Authority has an arrangement with BBC Hereford & Worcester (94.7FM) to broadcast information about school closures from early in the morning.  Where possible, signs will be posted at the school entrances to inform parents of closure arrangements, as well as on the scrolling banner on the website.


*  Key Stage 1 pupils are those in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2

    Key Stage 2 pupils are those in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6
