Our School Day


The playground gate is opened by a member of staff at 8.35am and the school day begins at 8.45am when the bell is rung on the playground and children are brought into class.

(During rainy weather children may come in to school from 8.35am and go straight to class).


Morning Playtimes

All classes enjoy a 20 minute break from 10.30-10.50am. 



Lunch break is 45 minutes long from 12.00-1.00pm. The classes take turns to eat their lunch in the hall and play outside.


Afternoon Playtimes

Reception, Year 1 and 2 have a 15 minute break during the afternoon.


End of the Day

At 2.50pm the children all take part in sporting activity for half an hour. The bus children assemble at 3.30pm and are put onto the school bus at 3.35pm.

The school day ends at 3.30pm

Drop off and Collection
At the beginning and end of the day, parents are welcome into the school playground. Nursery and Reception children are dropped off and collected from Class 1's door. All other classes enter school from the main door (near the outdoor classroom).
If there are any changes to your child's normal arrangements, please let us know. The best way to do this is by using your child's communication book (which is checked every morning by a member of staff). However, if this is not possible please contact the school office.

Getting to the Academy 
Please use the school car park when dropping your children off. Alternatively, we do have a bike shelter where  families can safely store bikes during school time. Some children may be eligible to access the school bus service (please contact the Chehsire East Council Transport Helpline: 0300 123 5012 for more information).


Disabled Access

Calveley Primary Academy is committed to ensuring equality of opportunity for all employees, pupils and any others involved in the community of the school. We make it our duty to provide facilities that enable inclusion for all: disabled parking spaces, a large car park that is pedestrianized, doors with wheel-chair friendly widths and access.
