School Day/Routine

The school day runs from 9.00 am until 3.30pm each day. This amounts to 6h30m each day and 32.5 hours each week.

This is a typical day at St Andrew’s C of E Primary Academy, Chardstock.

The school gates are opened at 8.50am and children can play before the start of the school day.  A bell is rung a few minutes before 9am for the children to line up by their classroom door. The children go into class ready for a 9am start.  Parents leave and the side gate is locked.
