Lacewood Primary School

Always try your best to be your best

The School Day

Morning playtimes 

Morning playtime is at 10:45am for Y1 to Y6. Playtimes include opportunities for games and activities with 2 class teachers, Behaviour Support Leader and Sportsleader.  Foundation 1 and 2 (Cherry and Willow) have break times which are quite flexible. 


Children in Cherry class who attend over 2 and a half days have their lunch at 11.30-12.15. Willow, Ash, Maple and Elm have their lunch at 11.45am. Holly, Linden, Beech and Cedar children begin their break at 12noon.  Lunchtimes for all end at 1.00pm. 

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.  If normal arrangements have to be altered (eg you are delayed or another person over the age of 16 is collecting your child), please let us know.  This avoids any confusion or upset. Please follow the Alternative Collection arrangements. Children in Y5/Y6 may walk home alone if parents give consent to the school office or their teacher. 

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.
