At Michael Syddall CofE (Aided) Primary School, we have a staggered start to our school day.
Key Stage 2 children (Years 3, 4, 5 and 6) can enter school from 8.35am. They have ‘morning tasks’ to complete while the rest of their class arrive. School starts at 8.45am by which point all Key Stage 2 children should be in school.
Foundation Stage, Year 1 and Year 2 children enter school at 8.45am and make their way to their classrooms, ready to start the day.
Morning break times are staggered across school. Key Stage 1 and years 3 and 4 have their break from 10.15am until 10.30am while years 5 and 6 have their breaks from 10.30am until 10.45am.
School ends at 3.30pm with some children attending after school clubs depending on what is on offer each day.
Our school week is 33.75 hours long.
