Lunchtime activities are available on a Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday with specialist coaches from Premier Sports. Children will need to bring a change of old sports clothes as some activities will take place on the school field.

Mrs Colman will run her “ditch club” in dry weather and children are encouraged to bring in their named wellington boots to take part in den building.



Afternoon Break

Children in KS1 will have an afternoon break at 2.45pm (this may vary if we have an early assembly).


Assembly takes place every Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoon from 3pm so we ask that if your child does need to be collected early for a medical appointment, please let the office or class teacher know so that assemblies aren’t disrupted. Thank you.

The school day finishes at 3.30pm
