St. John's C of E VC Infants' School

The School Day


Our school day starts at 8.45am when the school bell rings in the playground and the Reception classroom doors are opened. Children are then registered at 8.50am. The Key Stage One children (Year 1 and 2) have a morning break at 11am. Lunchtime arrangements start at 11.30am for the Reception children, followed by the rest of the school and finish at 1.15pm. Assemblies are held in the mornings at 9am or in the afternoons at 1.15pm. The school day finishes at 3.05pm. See below for detailed timetables for each Class. 

Attendance Matters

We expect children to be in school on time every day, ready to learn. Please see our Attendance and Punctuality Policy on the School Pages of this website. Each Autumn, we send home a leaflet which highlights the importance we place on Attendance and Punctuality. Classes are rewarded for good attendance.

Assemblies and collective worship

An assembly is held in each school each day led by a member of school staff. Assemblies often include visitors to the school or are themed, eg birthday assembly, celebration assembly, 'visiting vicar', etc.
