Daily Routine

The school day:

The school day begins promptly at 9.00am and ends at 3.30pm.  Children are allowed into school from 8.50am. We are unable to take responsibility of your child before this time.

Morning registration takes place at 9:00am; arrival after this time will be classified as late.

Afternoon registration takes place at 1.15pm; arrival after this time will be classified as late.

The lunch break is from 12.10pm until 1.15pm.

School meals need to be ordered and paid for in advance.  Ordering Menus are sent home every four weeks and should be returned the following Monday with the choices marked clearly and full payment either for each week or the full four weeks. The menu is also available on the website.  Meals cost £2.40 each (£2.00 for Pre School children), payment should be cash or cheque payable to Devon County Council.

If you have any queries regarding school meals or if you wish to discuss a diagnosed food allergy that your child has, please ring the school administrator on 01769 580512.

Snack time is usually at 10.20am in Reception and Key Stage 1 (Year 1 and 2) and 10.30am in Key Stage 2 (Years 3 to 6).  All children in Reception and Key Stage 1 classes are provided with a fruit or vegetable snack. You are welcome to send your child in Key Stage 2 (Years 3 to 6) in with a fresh fruit or vegetable snack. 

Morning break is from 10.30am to 10.45am.

Water  All children need to bring in water bottles (clearly marked with your child's name) containing only water. These should be taken home on a Friday.  Children are encouraged to drink water throughout the school day.

Going to the toilet  Children should ideally go to the toilet before school and during break times only.  However, some children need to go more frequently and they are allowed to go during learning time. Children are discouraged from going to the toilet together.
