Our usual school opening hours for pupils are:

8.50am Doors open and children are greeted by staff & Start of the days activities
9am Register closes
Morning break
12.15pm – 1.15pm Lunchtime
3.15pm End of the school day

The typical school day opening is 6 hours 25minutes each day (from 8.50am to 3.15pm). School is currently open for 32 hours and 5 minutes per week.

School Governors are in the process of reviewing this in order to comply with the statutory 32.5 hours by September 2023. This will be done in consultation with staff and parents in advance of this change.

Wrap around care is available in our Carlton Owls Wrap around provision centre which operates a Breakfast Club from 7.30am until the start of school at 8.50am and our after school club which runs from the end of school at 3.15pm until 5.30pm.

We also incorporate the “Daily mile” as part of our school day.

Please note children will not be supervised until the school day begins unless they are attending a club, so we ask that they do not arrive before the school doors open. All children in Reception up to and including Year 4 must be accompanied by an adult or older sibling on school site. Year 5 and 6 children need signed permission to walk to and from school without adult supervision. These measures are in place to help keep every safe.

Permission to leave school during the day must be by letter/email from the parent or guardian and an adult must collect- this should only be used for key appointments that cannot be arranged for outside the school day.
