School Hours

The School Day

Below are the times of the usual school day. We greatly appreciate parental support in ensuring attendance remains high at our school.

Leave of Absence including holiday and extended leave cannot be granted unless there are exceptional circumstances. Please contact the school office for further information and request form:


School Day

Tysoe children start school at 8.55 a.m. and finish at 3.30 p.m.

Our act of worship takes 15 minutes each day, usually between 3:00 p.m. and 3.15p.m.

Morning break is 10.30 a.m.  – 10.45 a.m. for the whole school.

Afternoon break is from 2.45 p.m. – 3.00p.m. and is taken by Classes Reception, Class 1 and 2.

Absence from school

Parents are requested to inform the school of the reason for a child’s absence as soon as possible by telephone.  If no message regarding the reason for absence has been received, then the admin staff will try to make contact with the parents to find out the reason for the absence as close to the close of registers as possible.


The school day begins at 8.55am. Children arriving after the school gates have closed should enter school via main reception. They should report to the Administrative Assistant with a parent /carer and complete the late book, adding a reason for lateness.  Any child arriving more than 30 minutes after the start of the session (9.25am) will be marked as late after the register has closed (U). Where a child is persistently late the Head Teacher will ask to meet with parents/carers. Times of arrival will be recorded as this information, along with registers, are legal documents and may be used, as with absences, in prosecution purposes.
