The School Day
START AND END OF THE SCHOOL DAY
The school day for pupils is slightly different for pupils in Key Stage 1 & 2.
Key Stage 1
Morning session 8:55 am to 12 noon
Afternoon session 1:00 pm to 3:15 pm
Key Stage 2
Morning session 8:55am to 12:15 pm
Afternoon session 1:15pm to 3:15 pm
All children have a 15-minute morning break and KS1 children have a 10-minute break in the afternoon. KS2 children can be rewarded with a ‘Reward Playtime’ on a Friday afternoon.
Our main school gate is opened at 8.50am, all parents and pupils access school through this route. The school bell rings at 8.55am so that children are ready to start morning lessons at 9:00am
At the end of the school day the main school gate is opened at 3.00pm. Parents congregate on the playground and wait for the children to be dismissed from their classrooms (Year 5 and Year 6 from the KS2 cloakroom)
School lunches are cooked on the school premises. A choice of a cooked meal or a filled baked potato is offered and a vegetarian option is always available. Most children stay for a school lunch while others bring a packed lunch. Very few children go home for lunch.
The School Office needs to know on a Monday which days your child is to stay for lunch. Cheques should be made payable to Gateshead Council.
