The School Day


The two gates on Marvels Lane and the top gate on Riddons Road will all be opened at 8.45am.

Reception, Year 1, Year 2 and Year 3 – parents can now bring their child direct to the classroom door.

Years 4, 5 & 6 – children will be asked to wait in a class line in the Top (Yr4), Middle (Yr5) and Bottom (Yr6) playgrounds, until their teacher leads them in at 8.55am.

You may use any gate except the main gate. Gates will close at 9am. Any late arrivals will then need to be taken to the main gate, where they will need to wait to be met by a member of staff to take them in.

School finishes at 3.15pm.  Gates will be opened at 3.10pm and will be shut at 3.30pm.

Nursery parents, please note that Nursery timings are slightly different and you will be advised separately.

You can apply for a space in Breakfast Club or Little Acorns After School Club if these timings are not suitable (see below).


At Marvels Lane, we provide both Breakfast and After-School Provision, both of which are intended to provide affordable childcare for working parents.

Breakfast Club opens at 8:00am and is a great way to start the day.  Children will be given a choice of breakfast cereal or toast and jam with water or milk to drink.  There will be a range of activities available for the children each morning as well as a quiet reading area.  Breakfast club costs £3.00 per child per session.

Little Acorns After-School Provision provides an environment for children to relax and enjoy themselves.  It will run from 3:30pm until 5:45pm, the time being split into two sessions:

  • 1st session runs from 3:30-4:30pm
  • 2nd session runs from 4:30-5:45pm

Each sessions costs £5.00 and the second session will include a light snack. 

Sessions for both services must be booked and paid in advance.  Please ask at the school office for further details and for a registration form for either service.
