The School Day


The school day for pupils is slightly different for pupils in Key Stage 1 & 2.


Key Stage 1  

Morning session               8:55 am to 12 noon

Afternoon session            1:10 pm to 3:15 pm


Key Stage 2  

Morning session               8:55am to 12 noon

Afternoon session            1:05 pm to 3:30 pm


All children have a 15-minute morning break and KS1 children have a 10-minute break in the afternoon. All children can be rewarded with a ‘Golden Time’ on a Friday afternoon.


Our school gates are opened at 7:00am, all parents and pupils access school through these routes. The school bell rings at 8.50am so that children are ready to start morning lessons at 9:00am

At the end of the school day the school gates are opened at 3.00pm. Parents congregate on their child's playground and wait for the children to be dismissed from their classrooms. 



School lunches are cooked on the school premises. A choice of a cooked meal or a filled baked potato is offered and a vegetarian option is always available.  Most children stay for a school lunch while others bring a packed lunch.  Very few children go home for lunch.


The School Office needs to know on a Monday which days your child is to stay for lunch. Cheques should be made payable to Gateshead Council.
