Although the timings for year groups vary, each morning session will consist of morning work and registration, a Maths, Literacy Skills and Literacy lesson and a break of 15 minutes.

Pupils in each year group have 45 minutes break for lunch, which includes time for physical activity either on the yard or an organised club in the hall.  Indoor provision is also available for those pupils who would benefit from it.

Afternoons begin with registration and a whole class reading session.  Afternoon lessons cover our ambitious bespoke curriculum.
