The School Day

Children may arrive at school from 8.45am and before 8.55am.

We have three entrances:

  • Little Acorns & Acorns – Acorn Building Gate
  • Cherry, Ash & Oak Classes – Middle Gates
  • Willow & Chestnut Classes – Horses’ Field Gate

Our mornings usually focus on maths and English with foundation subjects and science during the afternoons.

Infant break is 10.15am and KS2 at 10.30am. Fruit or vegetable snacks are provided for Acorn, Willow and Chestnut classes through the School Fruit and Vegetable government scheme and all children are welcome to bring a piece of fruit or vegetable snacks from home.

We have two lunch sittings. Our infants eat first followed by our KS2 classes. Children having packed lunches eat in the main school hall with children who have school lunches. Our school lunches are served family style and children have the opportunity to choose where they sit.

Children may have a hot school meal or bring a packed lunch from home. Please see our Lunch Menu information in our Parents section for more information about our hot meal options. We promote healthy eating and ask that packed lunches do not contain fizzy drinks, chocolate bars and gummy sweets etc. We understand that children can go through many phases when it comes to food. For further ideas, tips, recipes and information about healthy packed lunches please follow this link:  https://www.nhs.uk/healthier-families/recipes/healthier-lunchboxes/

The end of the school day is 3.30pm and children may be collected from the same gates they arrive at in the morning.

Illness & late arrivals

Please telephone the school office before 9.30am if your child is unwell and can’t come to school.  You can also report an absence by emailing leconfield@lpschool.org.uk

Please use the main entrance if your child arrives after the gates have closed.

PE Sessions

We continue to ask children to come to school in their PE kits on days when they have PE.  Teachers will keep in touch with you via Seesaw and will tell you when children should wear their kits for school.

Children need to bring a water bottle and reading books each day. All items should be clearly labelled with your child’s name.
