The School Day
The official school day starts with morning registration at 8:45am and ends at 3:15pm. This includes breaks but not optional before or after school activities. The total time this amounts to in a typical week is 32.5 hours.
The gates to school open at 8:30 and by 8.45 you should be in your classroom. Your bag should be stored in your locker and you should be ready for registration by 8.45am. Your teacher will then take the register, you will be asked for your lunch choice if you have a school dinner.
After registration you will have your first lesson. This may be maths, history, geography, science, topic, PE or another lesson. On Wednesday or Thursday you will have carousel which is when you have three lessons - PE, music, French - in rotation during the morning or afternoon. For carousel you will need to wear your PE kit the whole time.
At lunchtime you will be asked to go straight into the lunch hall or go outside to play. You will be called into lunch by a lunchtime supervisor holding up your class name. It is important you have your colour band so the kitchen ladies know what meal you requested and has been cooked for you. During lunchtime there are lunchtime supervisors in the playground and dining hall, and also there are children nominated as Playground Ambassadors who can help you if you need it.
Once lunchtime has ended at 1:15pm, your teacher will take the register once more. You will have another two lessons during the afternoon.
It's the end of the school day and your teacher will dismiss you. You may meet someone at the school office, or you may meet them at the school steps. If you are allowed to walk home or meet someone at an agreed meeting point, please be very careful crossing roads if you need to and walk sensibly. Also please be aware of cars and other pavement and road users!
