The School Day

Normal Hours are:

Morning: 9.00 - 12.15 pm

Afternoon: 1.15 - 3.10 pm

The school day is 4 hours 55 minutes excluding a 15 minute mid-morning break. The time includes both teaching time and time allocated for daily assembly and registration. Staff supervision begins at 8.50am. Please try to ensure children do not arrive before that time.

The school participates in the Government Free Fruit & Veg Scheme for children in Oak, Ash and Birch classes. A mid-morning break takes place between 10.15 and 10.30am. During this time orange juice and milk is available (see School Meals) and the older children may bring fruit to eat.

Please note that children are only allowed to leave the premises during the school day if a prior written request has been made. Please inform the class teacher if anyone other than a parent is collecting your children.

If you are late for the start of the school day please enter your child’s arrival in the appropriate book in Reception. Additionally please sign your child in or out should they need to leave the school for appointments such as those for medical reasons.

School Aims

school leavers

Education is a life long process bringing together skills and knowledge so that everyone can live in peace, harmony and prosperity. At Sherston Church of England Primary School we seek to provide the fundamentals of that process.

The annual Leavers' Service is held in the parish church

  • We aim to create a caring atmosphere in which every child feels secure, happy, valued and confident

  • We have the highest ambition for each child attending the school and aim to provide a high quality education which is wide-ranging, balanced and stretches all children to attain high standards and realise their full potential

  • We strive to kindle in each child a sense of curiosity which will lead to a desire for new experiences and challenges

  • We encourage our children to care for each other, be polite, be sensitive to other people's feelings and to respect their own and other people's property

  • We aim to help our children acquire a set of moral and spiritual values that reflect our designation as a Church of England Voluntary Controlled Primary School


All parents seeking admission should obtain application forms from the office.

We have two intakes each year. Children whose 5th birthday falls between 1 April and 31 August start full time in January, following a period of part-time attendance during the autumn Term

Those with birthdays between 1 September and 31 March start full-time in September. Admission forms should be completed by the December prior to their admission.

We maintain close links with the Sherston "Busy Hands" Pre-school for 3-5 year olds. We arrange with them a series of informal visits during the Summer Term with the aim of making the transition to school an easy and natural one for each child.

Parents interested in registering their child at Sherston School are very welcome to visit the school during school time or after school. Contact the office for an appointment with the Headteacher.

A booklet detailing the School's Early Years Curriculum and Organisation is circulated to all parents with new entrants.

Reporting to Parents

Parents are always welcome to discuss the progress of their children. Parent consultation evenings are held twice a year. A Record of Achievement, based on the requirements of the National Curriculum, is completed with a portfolio containing examples of work. Depending on their age, children are also encouraged to review their work. This may take the form of an appraisal at the end of a topic, comments in a reading review book or contained within the Record of Achievement.

An Annual Report is written in the summer term. Our Reception pupils also receive a Foundation Stage Profile. For children aged seven and eleven, the report is further supplemented by Standardised Assessment Tests (SATs)covering the core areas of English and Mathematics. At eleven, SATs in Science are also taken. Junior children in years 3, 4 and 5 take part in optional SATs in English and Mathematics on an annual basis.
