The School Day

Our school day runs from 8:45am to 3:15pm. For activities running before and after these times, please see ‘After School Clubs’.

Start and Finish Times

All children are expected to attend school on time each and every school day. Lateness disrupts lessons for other children – punctuality and attendance are taken seriously at Devonshire Hill.

Absence from School

If children are unable to attend for any reason, parents/carers must telephone the school before the start of school on each day of absence. Please be aware that absence will not be automatically authorised.

During your child’s absence you can support their learning at home by accessing our Home Learning page on the school website which includes a number of useful educational tools.

The school’s sequenced curriculum is available on the website under Curriculum Subjects, where you can go into each subject and find the Learning Journey for your child’s year group. 

If you need to loan a device for access, then please do not hesitate to contact the school so that we can arrange this for you.  

In the meantime, we wish your child well and look forward to welcoming them back to school as soon as possible. 

Class Timetables

Each class has its own timetable which can be viewed below.
