This is a special part of the day where we share food, learn to serve each other and enjoy conversations together, as well as sharing Appreciations for the people who help us in our lives. Pupils then go into their outdoor play.

As pupils progress through the school, the shape of the Academy day will evolve, including a finish of 3.30pm in Chapter Two (Years 1-4) and moving towards a finish of 4pm in Chapter Three (by Year 6). This will also include a 2pm finish on Fridays.

Wraparound before and after school care will be available at an additional cost per session. Details will be shared with families as they are finalised.
