Our School Day

Our School Day

The school day starts at 8.45am and finishes at 3.15pm. 

Registration, Morning Work or ‘Fun Fit’ is from 8.45am to 9.00am.


Morning Play

At 10.30am the children enjoy a 15 minute break.



Lunchtime for all children begins at 12pm and ends at 1.00pm.  During the course of the hour children have the opportuntiy to enjoy a family style meal and engage in daily physical activity outside.  


Drop-off and Collection

At the beginning and end of the school day, parents are encouraged to drop their children at the classroom door.  This builds up independence for our children but also helps to build up a close relationship between home and school – we want to have good links with all parents.  If normal arrangements have to be altered (eg you are delayed or another person is collecting your child), please let us know.  This avoids any confusion or upset.


Getting to School

To get to and from school, walking is definitely the best option when practically possible! There are lots of benefits: it’s healthier than travelling by car, it improves the safety of pedestrians and road-users, and it respects nearby residents and parking regulations. If you do need to travel by car, please park wisely.  At Lynton, parking permits are available for Bottom Meadow Car Park to enable parents/carers to park free of charge whilst dropping off and picking up children.  At Parracombe parents/carers are encouraged to park in the Village Hall carpark.
