Welcome to Wellington Community Primary School

Our School Day

A school day is 6 hours and 15 minutes long (from morning registration until the end of the day) meaning that, in a typical week, children spend 31 hours and 15 minutes at school.


A typical day at Wellington Community Primary School consists of:

08:40  -Doors open
08:45  -Registration & morning lessons
10:15  -Break time
10:30  -Morning lessons
12:00  -Lunch time
12:50  -Registration & afternoon lessons
15:00  -Home time


In the mornings, Year R, 1 and 2 children enter their classrooms through the external doors onto the KS1 playground at the front of the school. Please wait with your children until their teacher has welcomed them into school. Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 will also be greeted by their teachers at their external classroom doors. This is the same for collection after school.



From September, to meet the government's expectation of a 32.5 hour 'core' school week, our school day will consist of the the following:

08:35  -Main gate opens
08:40  -Classroom doors open
08:45  -Registration (to be completed by 08:50)
15:15  -Home time
