Times of School Day

School starts at 9am each day and ends at 3.30pm. Lunch is from 12 noon until 1pm. See below for a break down of the school day.

The Government has set out the total number of hours which children are to be taught in a week. This teaching time does not include registration time (when registers are called at 9.00 a.m. and 1.00 p.m.), assemblies or break and lunch times.

The required teaching time for Key Stage 1 is 21 hours, while for Key Stage 2 it is 23.5 hours per week.

The taught time in Shebbear Community School is:

Key Stage 1 – 21 hours 40 minutes

Key Stage 2 – 23.5 hours

This is broken down as

Key Stage 1

Morning session 9.00 a.m. to 12 noon less: 10 minutes registration time
20 minutes break time
20 minutes assembly time
Therefore 2 hours 10 minutes per day, 10 hours 50 minutes per week
Afternoon session 1.00 p.m. to 3.30 p.m. less 5 minutes registration time 15 minutes break time
Therefore 2 hours 10 minutes per day, 10 hours 50 minutes per week

Total per week: 21 hours 40 minutes

Key Stage 2

Morning session 9.00 a.m. to 12 noon less: 10 minutes registration time
15 minutes break time
20 minutes assembly time
Therefore 2 hours 15 minutes per day, 11 hours 15 minutes per week
Afternoon session 1.00 p.m. to 3.30 p.m. less 3 minutes registration time
Therefore 2 hours and 27 minutes per day, 12 hours and 15 minutes per week

Total per week: 23 hours 30 minutes

Children should not be on the school premises before 8.45 a.m., since before that time staff cannot assume responsibility for them. At 9am the bell rings and the children line up in their classes before filing in to class.

If for any reason your child has to come to school before 8.45 a.m., a prior arrangement should be made with the Head Teacher.

During the lunch time, Meal Time Assistants are employed to supervise the children in the dining hall and playgrounds, or classrooms if the weather is bad. The Head Teacher, or a nominated senior member of staff, is also available throughout the lunch time if required.

At home time the arrangements for each class are as follows:

Teddy Class Parents/carers/other authorised adults to collect the children from the covered area.
Panda Class Children leave the class via the door which leads on to the playground. Parents/carers/other authorised adults to collect them directly from the class teacher at the door.
Koala Class Children leave the class via the fire exit only, observed by a member of staff, and parents/carers/other authorised adults to collect them from the school playground or by the Village Hall school gate.
After School Clubs Children are released from class at the end of the school day to go straight to the After School Club. Parents/carers/ other authorised adults to collect children directly from the relevant After School Club.

Children who go home by bus are collected by a staff member from the ICT area and taken to the front gate to board the school bus.

Some children have permission from their parent(s) to walk or cycle from school to home and a list is kept in the school office and with the register. Unless we have received a permission slip to that effect then no child will be allowed to leave by themselves.

We regularly remind pupils of the dangers which strangers present to children and for this reason we make two requests of parents:

  1. Please let us know if you are going to be late meeting your child;
  2. Please let us know if you have made arrangements with someone else to pick up your child.
