The School Day (During the current pandemic, a staggered start and finish times are in place so this does not apply)

The school day starts at 8.55a.m. In order to make a prompt start the children should be on the playground by 8.50a.m. Children normally wait on the playground until school starts where a member of staff is on duty from 8.45a.m. We ask that KS1 parents wait with their child until they go into the classroom. The whistle is blown at 8.55a.m at which time the children will line up and the class teacher will guide them in to school. They are allowed to go into their classrooms if the weather is poor. We cannot accept responsibility for children who arrive at school before 8.45a.m.
There is a mid morning break from 10.45 – 11.00.
Lessons then continue until 12.35p.m. when lunchtime begins.
Afternoon lessons start at 1.35 p.m.
School finishes at 3.10 p.m.

School Assembly

Assemblies are held throughout the week and commence at 10.30am. Our Friday assembly is known as the 'Celebration Assembly' and this is when children are awarded for their hard work and excellent behaviour. Occasionally parents will be invited in to school to be a part of the 'Celebration Assembly'.

School Uniform and Equipment

Our vision encourages children to work hard and have high aspirations. Wearing school uniform encourages children to feel that they belong. Smart children take a pride in their learning and their school. At Kegworth, all children from Reception to Year 6 wear the same uniform. Items with Kegworth Primary School logos are available from Castle Printwear – items without logos are just as acceptable. 


Bookbags and ties are available from the school office.

Book bag  £5.50 each           Cap   £5.00 each       

PE bag      £4.50 each           Tie    £4.00 each


Uniform sweatshirts, cardigans and fleeces can be purchased direct from

Castle Printwear, 47 Station Road, Castle Donington, Derby, DE74 2NJ

alternatively you can order online from Loop Schoolwear at


If you experience difficulty in affording items of uniform, please let us know as we may be able to help you. We consider it very important for the well-being, health and safety of our pupils that the correct uniform is worn and non-uniform items are not brought into school. We would be very grateful for your support in ensuring that your child has the correct uniform and equipment. For health and safety reasons any child with long hair should wear it tied back during PE and sports activities.

Dinner prices & booking information

School dinners are £2.30 per day for children in KS2 and are free for the children in KS1.


Please pre-book all school dinners on-line by visiting the School Money website. Each parent is provided with a unique password which will enable you to access your child's dinner money account. This will enable you to book and pay for school dinners. School dinners can be booked up until 12am midnight for the following day's dinner.


Please note that even if your child is in KS1 and receives universal free school meals or is registered for Free School Meals, you must still access the School Money website and book your child's dinner.

If you think you may be entitled to free school meals please speak to Mrs Dent or Miss Ince in the office.

Holiday Absence

Holiday leave is not normally authorised. However, the school recognises that there are exceptional circumstances when it may be appropriate to grant holiday leave. These may include:

  •  forces personnel on leave from a foreign posting or members of the police force or fire and rescue service who are given limited leave;
  •  significant family events;
  •  cultural and religious requirements;
  •  occasions when the pupil is to be educated off site.

Where a family requires a leave of absence for a holiday during term time, a written request should be submitted to the headteacher. If leave is granted it will be for a maximum of five days in one academic year. Any additional leave will be considered unauthorised. Persistent absenteeism will be referred to the local authority for prosecution.


Authorising requests for leave of absence

Legally, the Headteacher acting on behalf of the Governors has the discretionary power to authorise absence from school including that for exceptional or compassionate reasons. Any decisions to grant leave of absence during term-time will be based on criteria including:

  •  any leave of absence has already been approved in the academic year;
  •  the child’s previous attendance history;
  •  the age of the child/children;
  •  the child’s stage of education;
  •  the time of the academic year (i.e. prior to end of Key Stage SATs)
