Changes to timings of the school day
From September 2023, we are changing the timings of the school day to bring the school into line with the Government's new expectations for the minimum length of the school day. Start and finish times will be as follows:
- Reception, Year 1 and Year 2: 8:45am to 3:15pm
- Years 3 to 6: 8:45am to 3:20pm
The playground gate will continue to open at 8:30am in the morning.
Home Farm holds an ‘enhanced’ Healthy Schools award. At break, the children are encouraged to bring a piece of fruit to eat whilst out at play. They should not bring in sweets, crisps or chocolate bars.
The school participates in the Government’s fruit and vegetable scheme and every child in classes R, 1 and 2 is offered a piece of fruit or vegetable each day at break.
At lunchtime, the children may bring a packed lunch or choose to have a school meal. Details of our school meals are here.
