The Thrumpton Primary Academy day is structured as follows:

8.50am – Academy day begins

Children are met by their class teacher at their classroom doors.

10.30am – 10.50am – Break time

Children across school enjoy their breaktimes together. There are two large playgrounds and a large field that allow children to get some fresh air, spend time with friends and develop through these interactions.

All playtimes are supervised by staff, and we encourage active wet and messy play as an important part of the social and physical development of your child.

11.45am – 1.10pm – Lunchtime

Lunchtime is staggered. Our early year and key stage 1 children eat first at 11.45am. Key stage 2 children start their lunchbreak at 12.30pm as the younger children go back to class.

Children can either bring a healthy packed lunch or choose from our academy meals, which must be paid for in advance and are prepared on site. As well as two main meal options (one vegetarian), salad and fruit are available daily.

We use a cashless system for payment of meals – details of this will be provided if your son/daughter is successful in applying for a place at the academy.

A wide range of playground games are played during lunchtimes as part of our project play. Staff oversee these activities to ensure all children are safe and happy.

3.10pm – Academy day ends

Staff see out children at the end of the day, unless children are attending one of our wide range of after school clubs.

Children attend school for a total of 31 hours and 40 minutes.

The academy will be increasing these hours to 32.5 hours this academic year through the governance process.
