Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Academy Day

Getting to School

To get to and from school, walking is definitely the best option! There are lots of benefits: it’s healthier than travelling by car, it improves the safety of pedestrians and road-users, and it respects nearby residents and parking regulations. Alternatively, we have bike-racks. If you do need to travel by car, please park wisely and note that parking is prohibited on Smedley Lane.

The Academy Day

The school day starts at 8:50am and finishes at 3:20pm.  Registration is from 8.50am to 9.00am.

Break Times

Children in KS1 have their morning break at 10:30am - 10:45am

LKS2 break at 10:35am - 10:50am and UKS2 have a break from 10:45am - 11:00am.

KS1 children also have an afternoon playtime at 2:00pm until 2:10pm.

Children in EYFS have a flexible afternoon break.


Children in Nursery and Reception have lunch at 11:30am. Years 1-6 have lunch from 12:00pm - 12:55pm.

Drop Off and Collection

At the beginning and end of the school day, parents are encouraged into the playground. This helps to build up a close relationship between home and school – we want to have good links with all parents.  If normal arrangements have to be altered (e.g. you are delayed or another person is collecting your child) please let us know.  This avoids any confusion or upset.
