At Hammond Academy, we operate a soft start in the morning. The school week consists of 32.5 hours and is broken down into the following – the school gates open at 8.40 am and the children can enter their classroom at any time between 8.45 am – 8.55 am. This enables the children to settle into their classroom ready to start their lessons at 9.00 am.

At the end of the school day, children are collected from their classroom door at 3.15 pm. Providing we have received parental permission, children in Year 5 and Year 6 can walk home without an adult.

We run a Breakfast Club from 7.45am to 8.45 am, Monday to Friday, for all year groups.  The club provides a range of breakfasts for the children along with individual and group activities to start their day. 

Our After School Club is open from 3.15pm to 6.00pm. Children are provided with a light snack and can enjoy a range of indoor and outdoor activities.
