The Chandler C of E Junior School

The School Day

Morning Session

8.45 am – 12.15pm




Children may come onto the playground from 8.30am.

At 8.45 am the school gate is closed and children should go to their classes.    Children who come into school after this time should register at the School Office and will be marked late.


Lower School Break

10.35 – 10.50am

Upper School 


10.50 – 11.05am


In a bid to encourage healthy eating and reduce litter around the school children may eat a healthy snack, a piece of fruit or cheese.  No cereal bars (due to possible nut content) or nuts please.

Lunch Break

12.15pm - 1.15pm


Children eat lunch in year groups in the Hall or outside when the weather is fine. 

Due to a number of children having severe allergic reactions to peanuts we have adopted a NO NUTS policy for meals.  Please could you ensure that any snacks and packed lunches do not consist of nuts of any sort including peanut butter spread.  We thank you for your co-operation and understanding in this matter.

Afternoon Session

1.15pm -  3.20pm




Class teachers bring children to the playground at 3.20 - although some children leave by the side gate on to Church Path. This is a good time to raise any small issues or concerns with your child's teacher.

The school bus to Milford leaves promptly at the end of school. Unless they are involved in an official ‘after school’ activity, all children should have been collected by 3.30pm.  If you are going to be late please ensure you telephone the school to let them know. 




We can provide "wrap around care" from 8.00 a.m. through to 6.00 p.m. with Schools Out, run by some of our support staff, and providing children with a range of fun activities.
