School Day

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

For pupils in Primary One, there are slightly different arrangements at the start of the school year. These are as follows: School ends at lunch time for the few weeks in September (i.e. 12 noon) and then from later in the month onwards, school ends at 2.00pm. If there are any changes to the above times, whatever the reason, you will be notified in good time.

Camphill School Day:

  • Children should arrive into school from 8.45am -only Breakfast Club children should arrive into school before 8.45am
  • Breakfast Club runs from 8:15am - 8:45am. 
  • Pupils will not be allowed into the main building or into any classroom before 8:45am unless they are at Breakfast Club. 
  • From 8.45am children are supervised by teachers in their classrooms.
  • Your child is required to be in school when the start of the school day bell rings at 9.00am.
  • Your child should always be encouraged to arrive on time, as lateness can cause problems for both the child and the teacher.
  • Parents who bring their children to school by car, should use the ‘drop-off’ zones inside the school grounds. Cars must not be parked in the drop off areas or at the Bus Stop. In the afternoon parents may park in the school visitor’s car park or outside the gate. Only those holding disabled badges should park in the designated areas within the staff car park.

BREAK: 10.30am-10.45am/10:45am - 11:00am

Camphill actively encourages pupils to eat healthy and exercise regularly. Children are encouraged to bring a healthy break. Break snacks can be a piece of fruit, vegetables or bread snack and our school cook provides toast, fruit and drinks on a daily basis to purchase from the school canteen (this applies to P3-P7 only). Filtered water is also available for the children throughout the day.

We look forward to your continued support with our Healthy Breaks Policy.

LUNCH

P1-P4: 12.00pm-12.45pm
P5-P7: 12.15pm-1.00pm

Pupils may bring a packed lunch to school which they eat in their classroom or they may have a school meal served in the canteen. This menu is available each week on the school website. The school canteen provides a set dinner for pupils in P1-P7. The meals provided are set at a fixed price by the Education Authority.

Meals are provided free under certain circumstances. Information on applying for such can be found on the Education Authority's website. 

All children have outdoor playtime where a range of games and activities are available to them. We have a ‘Playground Friend’ scheme in place where Primary 7 pupils assist in organising activities for all the children over the lunchtime period.
