Children have 1 hour for lunch and play in the middle of the day, plus a morning and afternoon outdoor playtime (weather permitting, but we like to keep the children as active as possible!)

Cherry Grove Primary School meets the minimum expectation for length of the school week (32.5 hours). Children at Cherry Grove have a school week of 32 hours and 55 minutes. exceeding the minimum set by the DfE. This is a structure that works for our pupils and staff as allows optimum learning time and also some flexibility for a short afternoon playtime.
