Times of the School Day

At Turnham Academy, we believe we should always show urgency in our learning. Every minute of our day is clearly timetabled to ensure our pupils make the most out of their learning time.

Our Academy is organised into three Key stages:

Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) – Children in our Nursery and Reception classes.

Key Stage 1 (KS1) – Children in our Year 1 and Year 2 classes

Key Stage 2 (KS2) – Children in our Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 classes

Nursery morning registration is at 8:30am.

Reception and Years 1 to Year 6 have their morning registation at 8:50am.

Times of the School Day

End of the school day procedures - 

Children are led out by their teachers who will wait until they make visual contact with a parent or authorised carer that they know and recognise before they hand over your child. Whilst this may take slightly longer, you can be assured that your child will never be released to anyone that we do not know is fully authorised to collect them. For this reason, please introduce us personally to any adult that you wish to be able to collect your child.

Please do not ever just send someone different along, or even simply ring to tell us that someone different that you have not previously introduced us to, will be collecting your child. In the interests of safety, we will not let the child go in these circumstances.

Please also note that no person under the age of eighteen may collect a child from the school. No child below Year 6 may make their own way home. Should your child be in Year 6, and you want them to make their own way home, please provide us with this request in writing to the class teacher. We will not permit any Year 6 child to go home unaccompanied unless we have received this information.
