School Day

The Department for Education expects primary schools to deliver a school week of at least 32.5 hours during term time. The 32.5-hour expectation includes the time from the official start of the school day (morning registration) to the official end of the compulsory school day (official home time). The 32.5 hour week includes breaks and lunchtimes as well as teaching time, but does not include optional before or after school provision.

Currently Bedfield Primary School start times and finish times are as follows:

Start - 8.45am (breakfast club from 8am - bookable in advance)

Finish - 3.15pm

The doors open at 8.40am for children to enter the school. We like to start promptly at 8.45am.

Teachers mark children in late if they arrive after 8.50am.

Please ensure that your child has everything that they need for their day in school including water bottles, coats and appropriate footwear for the weather.

Class teachers will inform you when PE kits are required.

Please ensure that all personal possessions are clearly named to avoid a mountain of lost property or items going missing.
