Willingham Primary School

Our School Day and Wider Information

The school day starts at 8.50am and finishes at 3.15pm (32hrs and 5mins a week).   Classroom doors are opened at 8.40am.

Registration is from 8.50am to 9.00am.

Morning playtimes

Children have a break from 10.30 – 10.45am.


All children have their lunch between 12 - 1pm.

Afternoon playtimes:

All year groups have a break from 2 - 2.10pm.

Drop-off and collection:

At the beginning and end of the school day, parents are encouraged into the playground. This helps to build up a close relationship between home and school – we want to have good links with all parents.  Classroom doors are open from 8.40am to ensure all children can be settled in class in time for registration.  If normal arrangements have to be altered (e.g. you are delayed or another person is collecting your child) please let us know.  This avoids any confusion or upset.

Getting to school:

To get to and from school, walking is definitely the best option! There are lots of benefits: it’s healthier than travelling by car, it improves the safety of pedestrians and road-users, and it respects nearby residents and parking regulations. Alternatively, we have bike-racks. If you do need to travel by car, please park wisely.
