Earlham Primary School

The School Day



We operate a soft start to the day. This allows our pupils to come straight into school from 8.45am when the gates open. We encourage all children to come to school every day and on time as this allows a child to have the best possible start to their day.

The school doors will close at 9am when teaching begins.

On the rare occasions where a child arrives after 9am, they should report directly to the school office.

Morning play is staggered by phase and all play times are monitored by a mix of teaching and support staff:

KS1: 10.20am – 10.35am
KS2: 10.45am – 11am

Lunchtimes are staggered across the school and school dinners are served in our school dining hall.

Reception: 11.45am to 1.15pm

Years 1, 2 and 3: 12.25pm to 1.25pm 

Years 4, 5 and 6: 12pm to 1pm


The end of the school day is also staggered.

Collection Times are as follows:

Reception: 3.10pm
