SCHOOL HOURS

 

9.00 am to 12 noon

1.00 pm to 3.15 pm

 

THE SCHOOL DAY

 

Our school day begins at 9.00 am.   The older children are supervised on the playground from 8.50 am onwards. Our younger children may come into school and get ready for their morning lessons from this time. Children should not arrive at school prior to this time for health and safety reasons, unless by arrangement with the school.

 

Within the hours at school (9.00am to 3.15 pm), time is set aside for registration, daily collective worship and breaks.

 

The time available for teaching each week is therefore 23.75 hours for the children in Key Stage 2, (years 3 – 6) and 22.5 hours for the children in the Foundation Stage and KS1, (reception, and years 1 and 2.)  This difference is accounted for by the fact that only the younger children have an afternoon break.

Our classes are a mixture of straight year groups and mixed age classes. Classes are primarily organised on the basis of age.

 

Children start school in the academic year in which they become five years old.

As a community school, the LA is the admissions officer and can be contacted on www.northyorks.gov.uk  or 0845 034 9494.

 

 

Detailed arrangements are as follows: -  For most children:

Reception children will start school full time during September. The starting dates will remain staggered over a 2/3 week period according to their age. This will still allow them ‘special’ time to settle into their new class.’

Individual children and their needs would always be considered as part of our inclusive ethos. Our classes are a mixture of straight year groups and mixed year groups. Classes are organised on the basis of age.

 

Starting school is a very important and exciting step in a child’s life, so we aim to meet both you and your child several times before they start school.

For our Foundation 2 children, we hold a meeting for parents and arrange for the children to spend time in their new class before they begin school in September.

 

Parents who are considering applying to the school at other times are welcome to visit the school prior to their application
