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.

Year 4, Year 5 and Year 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 one of our wraparound care services (Breakfast Club or Little Acorns After School Club) if these timings are not suitable (see below).


Wraparound Care is how we describe our arrangements for looking after children before and after ‘normal’ school hours.  At Marvels Lane, we provide both Breakfast and After-School Provision, both of which are intended to provide affordable childcare for working parents.  Both services are run by a small team of qualified school staff.

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 and takes place in our dining hall.

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

  • Session 1 runs from 3:30-4:45pm
  • Session 2 runs from 4:45-5:45pm

Each session costs £5.00 and children staying for the second session will be provided with a light snack. Little Acorns takes place within the Children’s Centre next to the school.

Sessions for both services must be booked and paid for in advance via ParentPay.  If you are interested in either service, please complete a registration form and a member of the office team will be in touch with further details.
