Our School Day and Collective Worship

Daily Routines

Breakfast Club

St Mary’s runs a Breakfast Club from 8.00 – 9.00 am every school day. Entry is through the back gate.

The playground and year 1-6 classrooms are open from 8.45 am. Before the start of the school day parents and children should enter the site through the playground gate. Children in years 1 – 6 should go straight into class. EYFS classes (F1 and F2) start at 9.00.

There are also early morning clubs running every day eg Hockey and Choir.

Children are not allowed to play football before or after school as it is a hazard for families waiting in the playground. Also, scooters should not be ridden in the playground.

F2 and F1 children enter using the gate from the main playground, through the Foundation Stage outdoor area.

Year 1, 2, 3 and 4 children enter their classrooms directly from the playground. Year 5 and Year 6 children come upstairs to access their classrooms.
