A typical day at OJS

  A typical day will follow this pattern:

  • 8.45am - School starts
  • 8.45am - 8.55am - Morning registration
  • 9.00am - 10.15am - Learning session 1
  • 10.15 - 10.30am - Assembly

Children who arrive after the gates have closed need to enter school via Reception. The register closes at 9:15am and any children arriving after this time would be classed as having an unauthorised absence (U)

If your child is absent from school, please telephone the school office on 01332 571231 and choose option 2 to report the absence.

Our school is open for 32.5 hours per week in total for a typical week of compulsory school attendance.
