East Infant School Programme

School week

Students spend most of the day in their classroom, moving between shared class and grade-level learning spaces and dedicated playgrounds. While students visit the Primary School Library, they spend most of their week in the purpose-built Infant School building with dedicated, age-appropriate facilities for Music, Languages, Learning Support and PE, including a learn-to-swim pool.

Classes remain together for the majority of lessons, except Languages other than English in K2 and Grade 1.

School begins at 8am and finishes at 2pm.

* In addition to set lessons as part of our curriculum, PSE is responsive and integrated throughout every day so this number '2–5' could actually be more like 10–15 on any given week
** In K1, generally 1 lesson focussing on the outdoors takes place each week, however all K1 classes have direct access to outdoor learning spaces as part of their personalised classroom learning spaces
