Welcome toBarden Primary SchoolONLY MY BEST IS GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME

Our School Day

The Barden School day

For all children in Reception through to Year 6, the length of the school day is a statutory 6.5 hours per day, totalling 32.5 hours per week.


For all children at Barden, the school day begins at 8:35am and finishes at 3:05pm

For children attending 'The Nest @ Barden' children may arrive/leave slightly earlier or later than the times stated above due to the varying needs of the pupil cohort and the particular operational challenges they may face on a day to day basis. 

 

 

The way our school day is timetabled ensures that there is a substantive high-quality morning and afternoon session in every school day. Alongside this, there is a daily 15 minute morning break and a 1 hour lunchtime. 

 

Here are some examples of how a typical day at Barden Primary is timetabled...
