St. Chad’s runs a breakfast club each day from 7:50am onwards at a cost of £2 per day (no charge for children entitled to free school meals). Children need to arrive before 8.30 to register for Breakfast Club. This is run by Mrs Knighton.

Children arrive between 8:50 and 9:00am. School starts at 9am.

As a Catholic school, we echo the daily pattern of Church prayer so that it becomes a natural part of our children’s lives. Each morning begins with a prayer.

We place high value on everyone coming together as a community every day, either as a class or school, to represent the Church in worship.

Our school collective worship mirrors the weekly pattern of gospels used in Sunday mass. On Monday morning the whole school comes together where the gospel is introduced to the children and a discussion takes place. On other days, collective worship is planned and led by either the children or the class teacher.

  • Morning break for all pupils is 10.45 a.m. until 11.00 a.m.
  • Lunch break starts at 12:00p.m. Lunch begins and ends with a prayer.
  • Afternoon lessons begin at 1:00p.m.
  • At the end of the day there is a final prayer. All pupils finish at 3.10 p.m. and leave together.

We have an after school club which runs from 3.10p.m until 5:10p.m every day at a cost of £2 per hour (no charge for children entitled to free school meals).

We also have a full programme of after school clubs. After school clubs usually finish by 4.15. Information about these can be found on our website.
