End of School Day




At Newton Primary School our day starts at 8.50 am, children come straight into classrooms where teachers are waiting to welcome them and registration is done.

Lessons begin promptly after registration, at 9.00 am and it is important that lessons are not disrupted by late arrivals as children who are late miss important introductions to lessons.


Children have a 15 minutes morning playtime: from 10.20-10.35 am, Diamond Class have a separate break in the first term but then join the rest of the children as they become ready.


Lunch is from 11.50am to 1 pm for Reception & KS1 and from 12.00 - 1.00 pm for KS2.

All children benefit from a variety of dishes cooked at Tibshelf Junior School. Facilities are available for children to bring packed lunches and they can enjoy their meal in the hall with the other children, when school dinners are served.



Whole school assemblies are held three days a week from 2.00 pm when we reflect on our school values and we encourage children to develop knowledge and understanding of the world around us. We have a celebration assembly on a Friday from 9.00-9.30am, when we recognise and celebrate children’s hard work, effort and demonstration of our Newton Values.


The School Day ends at 3.20 pm for all children. Parents and Carers collect their children from outside the classrooms. If for any reason you are running late, please telephone the school office, so that the class teachers can keep the children safely in school until their adult comes to collect them.
