The School Day

The School Day


The school day begins at 8.55 am.  Parents are asked to bring their children after 8.45 am as supervision cannot be guaranteed before. To assist parents with childcare, a breakfast Club is run on a daily basis, which children can attend from 8am until the start of the school day.

Following registration at 9pm, assembly is conducted.   

Supervised break is from 10.40a.m. to 10.55a.m, during which time, children may have milk and /or fruit.

Morning school ends at 12.00 p.m. Lunch time commences at this time and children within KS1 are entitled to a free school meal. These meals are chosen by parents/carers/children from a preprinted menu - a copy of which can be seen on the school website under the News section / lunches. Lunch orders may also be taken for KS2 pupils. Alternatively, children are able to bring in a packed lunch, which we would request be placed in a lunch box, accompanied by a drink in a plastic flask with a secure lid.  Although we cannot dictate what children bring in their lunch boxes, Longborough School is a healthy eating zone where sweets and junk food are discouraged. When lunch is over, the children are responsible, under supervision, for clearing tables and returning the classroom and/or hall to its normal state.

Following lunch, children are able to play for the remainder of the lunch hour under supervision of our Midday Supervisor. 

The school day ends for KS1 at 3.15pm and KS2 pupils at 3.20pm. A range of school clubs are run throughout the year until 4.15pm and a fun after school Club is also run on a daily basis to 5.00pm.
