The School Day
School can begin for all pupils from 8.30, as we offer free yoga sessions from 8.30 am until 8.50 am. We find these short burst yoga sessions set the pupils up well for their learning through the rest of the school day.
The formal school day runs from 08.50 although parents that need to drop their children off earlier than this can access the Activ8 Breakfast club which opens at 8 am. Children in Little Owls finish at 3.05pm while pupils in all other classes finish at 3.10pm.
We have one formal break time which takes place at 10.30am until 10.45 and lunchtime runs from 12 pm until 1 pm.
Children may also attend Activ8 at the end of the school day. This runs until 6 pm from Monday to Thursday and until 4.30pm on Friday.
All children access both Maths and Literacy learning every day. At Rogate, we try to be flexible about when these sessions take place in case a lesson may need to be extended-eg in order to allow a class to complete an extended piece of writing, they may have an extended literacy session one day.
The afternoon sessions are usually for the wider curriculum sessions, including Science, Art, DT, History, Geography, Music, PE, French and PSHE.
After school clubs which are managed by school staff finish at 4 pm unless otherwise stated.
