School Opening Hours
In line with announced changes from the Department For Education for all schools to be open for 32.5 hours per week, our Governing Body will be consulting with our parents to extend our working hours to meet this criteria. For more details of this, please read this document here.
We will complete this change by the announced date of September 2023.
Current times of the school day are:
Graffham 9am to 3pm (30 hours per week)
Duncton 9am to 3.15pm (31.5 hours per week)
Our Newsletter : The Friday Flyer
Each week we email a newsletter to all school families, full of information about what we have been learning, celebrating special achievements, and giving essential information about what’s going on at school.
After School Clubs
Spring Term 2023:
At Graffham we currently offer a Multisports Club, childcare clubs on two afternoons, a Dance Club and a Gymnastics Club for Infant children
At Duncton we offer Dance, Spanish, Multisports, and childcare clubs for Junior children
Our kitchens at Graffham and Duncton enable us to offer freshly prepared hot school lunches every day. Chartwells supply and serve our lunches and they offer well balanced, healthy food choices at affordable prices.
From September 2014 all Infant children (Reception, Year 1 and Year 2) have been able to have a hot lunch every day free of charge; meal choices do need to be ordered in advance by parents via a ParentPay account, however. In the same way, meals for children in Years 3-6 can be ordered and paid for in advance via a ParentPay account. If you need further information about ordering a meal for your child please speak to the school office.
We issue the booklet below to make sure we are telling our parents everything they need to know about life at Graffham and Duncton Schools.
