The School Day


Here at Otley the school day starts at 8:55am.  


It is of considerable importance that children arrive punctually as registration is at 8.55am.  We feel that it is necessary for children to arrive about 10 minutes before the start of school.  This avoids the last minute rush to find belongings.  This is the period when a member of staff is available to supervise the children in the playground or in school if wet.  There is no guarantee that children can be supervised before 8.45am.


Playtime for the whole school starts at 10:40am and finishes at 11am.  


Children have access to the playground and field (weather permitting) during this time whlist they are being supervised by a class teacher or member of staff.


Lunch time for the whole school starts at 12pm and finishes at 1pm.


The children all sit together for lunch.  The session starts with a prayer, the children then enjoy a freshly cooked meal by our on site cooks (see 'School Lunches' information page) or a packed lunch made by their Mum or Dad.  


School ends at 3:15pm for all children.  


School ends at 3.15pm for all children and we ask that parents arrive a few minutes before this time.  Children will be supervised in the playground while they wait to be collected.
