At Mapplewells our School day starts at 8.45 am when a whistle is blown on the playground and children line up with their class to be brought into school by a member of the teaching staff. Children come straight into their classrooms and registration is completed.


Lessons begin promptly after registration and it it 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


Lunch is from 12.00 noon to 1.00 pm.


All children benefit from a variety of dishes freshly cooked on the premises. Each day there are two options to choose from, one of these is always a vegetarian option.


Facilities are available for children bringing packed lunches and they can enjoy their meal in the dining room with the other children, when school dinners are served.


The School day ends at 3.15 pm when parents collect their children from the nearest exit to their child's classroom.


In the event of a closure we will notify you via our text message service, our Twitter social media feed and the school website.
