The School Day

School Day

8.50am - 3.15pm

Our school day officially starts at 8.50am. The ten minutes prior to this, between 8.40am (when the doors first open) and 8.50am, is ‘Ready to Learn’ time. ‘Ready to Learn’ time is one of, if not, the most important part of your child’s school day. Every child is greeted as they enter the school and teachers and teaching assistants from other classes will say hello as they walk along the corridor. Once in the class, there are a range of activities for them to take part in. Sometimes there are group discussion questions, other times it might be a quiz, handwriting practice or math’s questions. It is also an opportunity to support a child with an area they may have found difficult the day before or to offer children positive feedback about how proud we are of the effort they are making. Most importantly, we have noticed that the biggest impact is on the children’s happiness as, during this time, staff also have informal chats with the children. ‘Ready to Learn’ time is one of our best opportunities to build these relationships with your children. It also ensures that children are in the right place to do their best learning.
