Goudhurst & Kilndown Church of England Primary School

Our School Day

The school is open from 8.45am until 3.15pm daily (although wrap around care is available).  This equates to 32.5 compulsory hours in a typical week

Our school day starts when the bell rings at 8.45am.  Children are encouraged to arrive in school from 8.30am when our playground is supervised by our duty teacher. Arriving before the bell goes allows children to play with their friends before learning starts promptly at 8.45am; there are many benefits for your child to arrive early as they are "ready to learn" when the bell goes.  

The individual timetable of lessons for each class can be viewed on the Class Pages, however all children come together for Collective Worship at 9-9.25am break-time is at 10.40am.  Lunchtime is staggered with the younger children having lunch first from 12.10pm.  Afternoon lessons for all children begin again at 1.25pm and the school day finishes at 3.15pm.  Please see the timetable for your child's class for more information on how their day is organised.
