The School Day

Start of the day

Year 4 children need to line up when the first bell goes ready to be collected by their teacher when the longer bell goes at 9.00am.


Your child may bring in a bottle of water with a non-spill cap to have during lessons because there is currently no water fountain near the Year 4 classrooms.

Break time

Children may bring in a piece of fruit to eat at morning break or a dried fruit product which is labelled ‘one of your five a day’. No other snacks are permitted.

Healthy Tuck Shop - those who wish their child to have a snack from our KS2 Tuck Shop now need to sign up and pay via SIMS Pay. Children are then issued with a Tuck Shop Card which is kept for them. 

Milk is now available break time for those who have signed up to the Cool Milk service. Milk is free for under 5’s as well as those who get free school meals and subsidised for all other primary school children. Find out more including how to register by visiting www.coolmilk.com


Please visit our Lunch page to find our more about school lunches and to see a copy of our current menu. 

Children in Key Stage 2 have lunch between 12.30pm and 1.30pm.

End of the day 

The school day finishes at 3.15pm for Year 4. The teachers bring the class down to the playground to meet parents/carers opposite the Lilley Suite.
Children who are not collected on time will be taken to the School Office to wait for you.

Supporting Your Child At Home 

You'll find useful information and resources to help support your child at home on our Homework page as well as on the Fun & Educational websites page.

Secondary School 

We encourage parents and carers to start considering secondary school choices and visiting some schools. Applications need to be made early in Year 6 and some parents find that looking around schools over a couple of years allows them to get a better understanding of what the choices are. You may also wish to take a look at our Moving Onto Secondary School page.

Parents Meeting Teachers 

Parents' Evenings are held in the Autumn and Spring terms - a private 15-minute appointment with your child's teacher to discuss progress. At other times, please feel free to come and see us if you have any worries about your child at school.
For anything further, an appointment can be made to discuss your concerns in more depth.

We want parents to feel welcome in our school. Please see your child’s teacher if you would like to help, for example, by accompanying classes on outings or helping with reading for the first half-hour of the day.


If you wish, you can send in a plate of fruit or donate a book to your child’s class and write a birthday message inside.
Swaffield is a 'Healthy School' and, as such, we do not allow sweets, chocolate or cakes to be brought into the classroom. This includes birthday cakes.
You may provide a plate of prepared fruit for the class to share if you wish.
If you wish you can buy a book to donate to your child's class and it will be inscribed:

"This book has been donated to Class ... to celebrate the birthday of ......... .........."

(It is always best to check the suitability of a particular book, with the class teacher, before you purchase it.)
Please DO NOT ask teachers to distribute 'birthday bags' or invitations.
