Here at Thames Primary Academy the  Day starts at 8.45 am when children come straight into classrooms where teachers are waiting to welcome them and registration is done.

Lessons begin promptly after registration, at 9.00 am and it it important that lessons are not disrupted by late arrivals as children who are late miss important introductions to lessons.


Children have a 15 minutes morning playtime: from 10.35-10.50 am.


Lunch is from 11.55am to 12.50 pm for Reception & KS1 and from 12.15 – 13.10 pm for KS2.

All children benefit from a variety of dishes, freshly cooked on the premises, as well as vegetarian options, salad bar and fresh fruit (as alternative to puddings).

Facilities are available for children bringing packed lunches and they can enjoy their meal in the dinning room with the other children, when school dinners are served.

Whole school assemblies are held every Monday from 9.00am when we reflect on our school values and we encourage children to develop knowledge and understanding of the world around us. 

The School Day ends at 3.15 pm for all our Children when parents collect their children from outside the classrooms.
