At Ethelbert Road Primary School the day starts at 8.45 am when children come straight into class for early morning work.

Lessons begin promptly after registration, at 8.55 am and it it important that lessons are not disrupted by late arrivals as children who are late miss important introductions to lessons.

Children have a 20 minutes morning playtime: from 10.30-10.50 am. This includes our wake up and shake up session.

Lunch is from 11.45 am – 12.45 pm for Reception & KS1 and from 12.30 – 1.30 pm for KS2.

All children benefit from a variety of dishes, freshly cooked at the Abbey School, as well as vegetarian options, salad and fresh fruit (as alternative to puddings).

Facilities are available for children bringing packed lunches and they can enjoy their meal in the dinning room with the other children, when school dinners are served.

Assemblies are held daily when we reflect on our school values and we encourage children to develop knowledge and understanding of the world around us. We attend weekly celebration assemblies, when we recognise and thank children for demonstrating one or more of our school values and KS1 & KS2 Singing assemblies led by our fantastic music teachers. Parents / Carers are invited to attend class assemblies and different productions throughout the school year.

The School Day ends at 3.15 pm when parents / carers collect their children from outside the classrooms or the playground.
