School Timetable

 

At St Joseph's we have a busy schedule with lots of different learning opportunities for our students. Below you will find a basic timetable of the school week.

 

School starts at 9 am for all children. Nursery aged children come into school with parents through the Nursery door.  Reception aged children enter school with their parents through the Reception door.

Year 6, 5, 4 and 3 children assemble in the KS2 playground. The school bell will ring at 8:55 am and the children will be brought into school by their class teacher.

Years 1 and 2 assemble in the KS1 playground. The school bell will ring at 8:55 am and the children will be brought into school by their class teacher.

For supervision purposes all other children should arrive no earlier than 8:45 am unless they are attending Breakfast Club (from 8am).

School staff are not responsible for your child’s care until this time.

 

School Meals and Snacks

 

At St Joseph’s our meals are provided by Citywide Services who prepare a balanced lunch. For more information click here.

Dinners

  • Dinner money must be paid using either ParentPay or a Paypoint.

  • Dinners must be paid in advance for the week ahead, either at the weekend for the following week or on a Monday morning.

  • Dinner Money must not be allowed to accrue debt. After two weeks of non-payment your child’s school meals will be stopped and a packed lunch must be provided.

  • Dinner Money is £2.00 per day.

  • If your child is absent during the week it will show in the balance for the next week. For example: If you paid £10.00 for the week ahead and your child was absent on the Friday; your account will show you are in credit to the value of £2.00. This means you only pay £8.00 the following week.
