The School Day
The teaching time available to the children falls in line with the recommendations of the Department for Education.
Our school day times are:
|Lunch||12.00pm - 1.00pm||
12.10pm - 1.00pm
|Afternoon activities finish||4.15pm||4.15pm|
Infant children are entitled to a short break during the afternoon period.
We would ask that children do not arrive at school before 8.45am as adequate supervision cannot be guaranteed before then. Staff will be on duty on the playground from 8.50am. We would also ask that children are collected promptly at the end of the school day or after school clubs have finished.
At the end of the school day, parents are welcome to wait outside the classrooms. Parents of infant children are invited to help their children with coats, etc at 3.15pm
Illness & Absence
If your child is unable to attend school, please contact the school office before 9.00am.
At Curry Mallet School, we aim to provide a happy, caring, well-ordered and stimulating environment in which teaching and learning can flourish and where all members of the school community are valued as individuals.
As a church school, we promote christian values and take seriously our responsibility for the moral and spiritual well-being of the children.
To achieve this aim we seek to create conditions which will:
- build pupils` self‑confidence and esteem
- help pupils develop lively and enquiring minds
- instill respect and tolerance
- help pupils communicate effectively
- help pupils appreciate and understand more about the world
- help pupils to appreciate human achievements, failures & aspirations
- help children develop appropriate relationships with others
- develop positive attitudes and concerns for the environment
- offer a broad based curriculum in order to facilitate the acquisition of knowledge & individual enjoyment in learning now and in the future
- foster the close relationship between the school, pupils` homes and the local community
Our aims are displayed around the school:
|Don’t give up||Concentrate||Imagine|
|Improve||Push yourself||Try new things|
|Understand others||Work hard|
