School Day

Times  of the school day

The school day starts at 8.45 am and finishes at 3.15 pm.  Registration is from 8.50 am to 9.00 am.  A Breakfast Club is available from 7.45 - 8.45 run by Fordham Care4Kids.  Please ask for more information from the school office.  

Many children come and walk or run the Golden Mile on the school field between 8.45 and 9.00 as a good way to start the morning and parents are welcome to join us.

Morning Playtime

Our morning playtime is at 10.15 to 10.30 am.  The whole school have playtime together.  Children in Reception and Key Stage 1 have a snack which is provided for them.  Children in KS 2 are encouraged to bring a healthy snack with them for their playtime snack.

Children under 5 and any children whose parents opt to have milk on daily basis.  This is given to the children in Acorn Class as part of their snack time.


 All children have their lunch in the main hall, with children in Acorns Class having lunch from 12.15 - 1.15 and children in Oaks from 12.30 - 1.15.  We are able to provide hot school meals, cooked on the premises and based on a 3 week rota of menus which are available from the school office. School meals are free to children in Acorns class and cost £2.40 per day for children in Oaks, other than those children who are eligible for Free School Meals.  Meals are ordered on Thursdays for the following week through the school office. Please speak to Mrs Wakeling in the school office about school lunches and for advice about whether or not you may be eligible for Free School Meals.


Our school day ends at 3.15 pm.  parents are able to wait in the school hall and children will be brought there by class teachers.  If there are any changes to who is collecting our child we would be grateful if you could let the office aware of this.  Some parents may give their permission for children to walk home alone.  If you allow your child to walk home, we would ask that you give your permission in writing.   If you know you may be late to collect your child from school, we would appreciate it if you could telephone and let the office know.  Please note that we will not send a child home with another adult, or allow them to walk home themselves, unless we have your express permission in writing, in person or by phone.

After School Clubs

As well as a variety of specific clubs, such as football, athletics, cookery and gardening, which run from 3.15 - 4.15 most days of the week, we also offer an After School Kids club between 3.15 and 6pm, run by Fordham Care4Kids.  Please ask for more details from the school office.
