Opening Hours

The School Day

The school day starts at 8.40am and finishes at 3.15pm

Parents drop off their children at the entrance to school with staff available to support and help children enter the building safely.

At the end of the school day gates are open for pupil collection from their classroom from 3.15pm



The start and end times provided show the duration of the compulsory school day.

From September 2023, the DfE set the expectation that schools provide a minimum school week of 32.5 hours. Bournville Primary School have always met or exceeded this.


The 32.5 hour minimum expectation includes the time in each day from the official start of the school day (i.e. morning registration) to the official end to the compulsory school day (i.e. official home time). The 32.5 hour minimum includes breaks and lunch times as well as teaching time and any extra-curricular activities that all pupils are expected to attend. It does not include optional before or after school provision.


Attendance Matters!

At Bournville Primary School we are committed to encouraging children to attend school regularly and on time. Research shows that there is a direct link between good attendance and achievement in school. Poor attendance can have a direct effect on attainment and future life chances. It is vital that good habits start when children are young.   Please see our page relating to attendance
