St Francis Church of England School

The School day

Breakfast Club

For children in our breakfast club, the school day begins at 7.50 am.

Main School

The school gates open for pupils at 8:35 am. Staff welcome children into their classrooms from 8.40am with registration at 8:45 am.  The school day finishes at 3.15 pm. It is important for children to be in school on time but we ask that they do not arrive at their classrooms before 8.40am as teachers and support staff are preparing classrooms for the day. Please make sure that your child is collected promptly at 3.15 pm from the classroom, unless they are attending an after school club.

All children have a 20-minute morning break and a 1-hour lunch break.

After School Club

Our after school club  runs from 3.15 to 5.45 pm each weekday evening.


Our nursery for 3 and 4 year old pre- school children runs a morning session between 8.40 am and 11.40 am,  an afternoon session between 12.30 and 3.30 pm and an all day "30 hour" session between 9 am and 3 pm.
