The School Day


During the current National Lockdown, the school day is running slightly differently.

Bubbles are currently grouped as follows:


  • Nursery Bubble
  • Reception Bubble
  • Year 1/2 Bubble
  • Year 3/4 Bubble
  • Year 5/6 Bubble


Bubbles enter and exit the building through specifically allocated doors.

Doors open at 8:50 a.m. and the register is taken at 9:00 a.m.

Bubbles play on separate playgrounds during the school day and do not mix with other Bubbles.

Lunch break is between 12 noon and 1:00 p.m. for all children currently on site.

The school day ends at 3:20 p.m.









The usual daily overview at St. John's looks a little different to our current running of school.


Doors open at 8.50am and the children are greeted on the playground by their class teacher.

It is very important that children arrive punctually at school. Arrival may be any time between 8.50am and 9.00am (when the register is taken). Please note that the playground is unsupervised before 8.50am and therefore, for safety reasons, the children should not be left unattended at this time.


From September 2015, the Government has insisted there be a stricter approach to school attendance. Any child whose attendance falls to 90% or below, will be classed as Persistent Absence.

Holidays in term time will not be authorised, apart from very exceptional circumstances. As a school we do appreciate the financial impact this has on families, however all schools are expected to take appropriate action to ensure children's attendance remains a priority. St. John's works closely with our EWO, Miss Bickerton, who supports families in ensuring children arrive at school on time and do not have unnecessary absences.
