Our School Day
The School Timetable
As with many schools of our size, flexible timetables with staggered break and lunchtimes are used to ensure that all pupils are happy, safe and secure at Sharp Lane Primary School. Below are some of the most important details for pupils and parents.
Daily Timetable (Years 1, 2 & 3)
In Years 2 & 3, break time will take place at 10:15am - 10:30am. During this time, pupils are encouraged to have a healthy snack and to take part in activities to boost their Social, Emotional and Mental Health. Our Year 1 pupils access their own space to play as part of their curriculum and are gradually introduced to the main school playground routines as the year progresses.
Daily Timetable (Years 4, 5 & 6)
In Years 4, 5 & 6, break time will take place at 10:30am - 10:45am. During this time, pupils are encouraged to have a healthy snack and to take part in activities to boost their Social, Emotional and Mental Health.
Lunchtime for pupils across school takes place between 12:00pm and 1:00pm. During the final 15 minutes of this time teachers, from all year groups, lead a supervised game with their classes to build strong relationship between pupils and staff. Once this game is completed, pupils return to class and begin their afternoon sessions.
The school day begins at 8:45am and school closes to children at 3:15pm (Monday to Friday). This ensures that we offer 32.5 hours a week of school time for pupils.
IMPORTANT: We no longer finish as 2:00pm on Fridays.
