Early Years School Life

The school day begins at 8.40am and ends at 3pm, and our Kindergarten children have the option of staying just in the morning or for full days with lunch.  Many of our Upper Kindergarten and Reception children start earlier with Breakfast Club or stay later with Teatime Club.

We provide a mid-morning snack and a nourishing lunch is prepared on site by the Chartwells catering team. The food is freshly prepared and cooked on site daily with a range of options for children to choose from. They develop their social skills as they eat together and our staff help them to cut up their food and to eat healthily.

Our younger Lower Kindergarten children are given the option to have a quiet time and a rest after lunch if needed.  Most groups spend the afternoons with creative activities designed to encourage their imagination and relationships, and there are various after school clubs for our Reception children.
