At St Catherine's Catholic Primary School our day starts at 8.30 am when children come straight into classrooms where teachers are waiting to welcome them and registration is done.


Whole school Liturgy assemblies are held daily at 10am where we reflect on our school values through the teachings of God. We attend a weekly Celebration assembly on a Friday when we recognise and thank children for demonstrating one or more of our school values and celebrate their fantastic work of the week.


Children have a 15 minutes morning playtime: from 10.15-10.30 am. The children are split into different areas of the school. KS1 have access to our lower playground and KS2 have access to our top playground.

 Lunch is from 12 noon to 1 pm for all year groups.

All children benefit from a variety of dishes, freshly cooked off our premises, as well as vegetarian options, salad bar and fresh fruit (as alternative to puddings). These are delivered to us daily and served.

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


The School Day ends at 3pm.

Please see our extra curricular club list, issued termly, for after school clubs available to our children.
