Times of the Day

Doors to the school building, supervised by members of the leadership team, will open at 8.50am where ‘Soft Start’ will commence. Soft Start encourages pupils to arrive to school before 9.00am, go straight to their class to carry out activities with their class teacher. Soft Start activities include Reading, Handwriting, English and Mathematics. These activities have a direct impact on all areas of the curriculum. The ‘Soft Start’ environment enables the children to settle down very quickly for the day, putting them in the right frame of mind for optimum learning. Soft Start also encourages independence and maturity when walking to your classroom and beginning your learning.

Here are example timetables to show how the days are structured for different year groups.
