Primary School

The School Day

 

To engender a sense of community within King Solomon, there will be daily Acts of Collective Worship for Primary.

For Primary pupils, whose teaching day finishes at 15.30, we offer a wrap-around provision for students including breakfast club and afterschool clubs at subsidised rates. Please contact school to find out about our wrap-around provision.

The School Year

 

The school operates a 42 week (210 days) school year. This increase in contact time of an additional 20 days (4 weeks) compared to the 190 standard days is important for giving pupils the best opportunity of success. We also provide enrichment activities outside teaching time. These include:

  • School holiday programme – a one week programme during the summer holiday period.
  • King Solomon will consult on the school calendar on a yearly basis but intends to operate the normal 3 terms per annum to fit in with the Local Authority’s holiday pattern and minimize disruption to parents and teachers with pupils in other local schools.
  • King Solomon will operate on a normal 5 days per week basis for 3 terms per year.
