Our School Day
THE BISHOPS’ CHURCH OF ENGLAND LEARNING ACADEMY
OUR SCHOOL DAY
The school day starts at 8.55am and finishes at 3.15pm. Registration is from 8.45am to 8.55am.
At 10.00am, children from Nursery and Reception have a short ‘brain break’ and a quick burst of exercise. Later in the morning, children in Y1 and Y2 have a break from 10.30am – 10.45am; older children from 11.00am – 11.15am.
Children in Reception have their lunch at 11.45am and their break ends at 1.00pm. Those in Y1 and Y2 have lunch at 12.00 noon. Y3 – Y6 children begin their break at 12.15pm. Lunchtimes for all end at 1.15pm.
Younger children have an afternoon playtime.
DROP-OFF AND COLLECTION
At the beginning of the school day, parents are encouraged into the playground with their children. This helps to build up a close relationship between home and school, we want to have good links with all parents. Collection is from the class door. If normal arrangements have to be altered (eg you are delayed or another person is collecting your child), please let us know. This avoids any confusion or upset.
GETTING TO SCHOOL
To get to and from school, walking is definitely the best option! There are lots of benefits: it’s healthier than travelling by car, it improves the safety of pedestrians and road-users, and it respects nearby residents and parking regulations. Alternatively, we have bike-racks. If you do need to travel by car, please park wisely.
