The school doors open at 8.15 am and the school day starts at 8.30 am with registration in the classrooms. A regular whole school assembly reinforces core values and morals; other assemblies might celebrate personal, Islamic or academic success. Once a term every class gets the chance to lead a topic-based assembly, often connected to the curriculum.
Whilst the morning concentrates on English and Mathematics there is ample opportunity to take part in the whole range of subject areas during the school day. On two days a week, the children have a physical activity lesson with a specialist teacher, which includes PE and Games.
Break times and lunchtimes are occasions when the children can mix with their peers and play outside.
The school day ends at 3.45 pm, with after school clubs often running until 4.30 pm.
Homework is set from Reception onwards (gradually increasing as pupils move up the school) and all children are encouraged to devote time to reading with their parents every day.
