The School Day

The times of sessions are as follows:

Nursery

Reception

Key Stage 1 (Phase 2, Years 1 & 2)

Key Stage 2 (Phase 3, Years 3 & 4)

Key Stage 2 (Phase 4, Years 5 & 6)

All children have a short break in the morning.

Arriving at school

The pedestrian gate into the playground is open between 8.35 and 8:55 in the morning and between 3.00 and 3.30 in the afternoon. If you come to the school outside these times, you will need to use the main entrance at the side of the school.

When the bell rings for the beginning of each session, children are expected to line up with the rest of their class until they are taken into school by their teacher. You should make sure that your child arrives on time for the beginning of each session. You should also make sure that you are on time to collect your child at the end of each session. If you are delayed, please phone us—children can become very upset if their parents are late.

Attendance, absence + punctuality

It is vital for your child’s learning that they attend school regularly. Therefore, your child is expected to attend school every day unless they are ill or have a medical appointment. If your child is absent from school, please let us know the reason by phoning the school, on the first morning of their absence. If your child is absent a great deal or if your child is persistently late this will be followed up by our Pupil and Family Support Worker and possibly by Newham’s Attendance Officers. Holidays are not authorised during term time.

School Meals

Currently all pupils in Newham can have a free school meal. There is always a choice of healthy options available. Alternatively your child can bring a packed lunch, but this must be a healthy meal. It should include a sandwich or main item such as pasta. Only water is permitted in plastic bottles, no fizzy drinks are allowed. Sweets should not be sent in to school as these are not part of a healthy meal. 
Almost all our children at Earlham stay at school for lunch, however if your child has a special need which mean home dinners would be a preferable option you can inform their class teacher. Please note the your child will need to be back promptly for afternoon registration.
