There are three breaks in the school day for Reception to Year 2 and two for Years 3 to 6. The children have access to a variety of play equipment at break times to encourage them to play together sensibly and enjoy sharing. The morning break is at 10.30 a.m., immediately after assembly and it lasts for 20 minutes.

The Reception Class are looked after by their Buddies until they feel confident to play on their own. The afternoon break for the younger children is 10 minutes long and gives them time to get some fresh air and a run around. All children have 30 minutes play at lunchtime, if they are not involved in clubs. If it is wet they have supervised play in their classrooms to play board games, draw or read or get together to watch a DVD.
