New Wave Federation schools are organised in such a way as to provide maximum time for learning across a balanced curriculum.
Our schools are committed to offering our children a healthy start to the school day by inviting them to attend a Breakfast Club from 8.00am each day. Places in our Breakfast Club can be arranged through the main school office.
In each of our three schools the school day officially begins at 8.55am when all children meet their teacher and additional adults who support them with their learning.
In New Wave Federation schools, the mornings are given to Mathematics and English. Depending on the year group, the order in which these are taught may vary.
In addition, each day an assembly is held at 10.05am, where children gather together to learn about our Unicef Article of the Week, Personal Learning Goal, to discover current events and festivals, sing, celebrate and share their learning.
All of our KS1 and KS2 children have a fifteen minute break from 10.20am until 10.35am.
EYFS and KS1 children have a break for lunch from 12.00pm through to 1.00pm whilst KS2 children eat slightly later at 12.30pm. Play time and lunchtime staff are trained to support children’s play. There are a wide range of activities for children to enjoy, such as skipping, reading, drawing, sports and table tennis.
In New Wave Federation schools, our afternoons are filled with learning based on the current topic. Subjects taught within these topics include Science, Writing, Geography, History, Art and International Mindedness. In addition to these, the children are also taught Design Technology, Spanish, Computer Science and Technology, Physical Education and Music.
