At Selwyn, we are committed to raising standards in achievement, attendance and punctuality. The school gates open at 08:45 and close promptly at 08:55. Lessons start at 08:55 when the registers close. Every week the class with the best attendance in each key stage wins the attendance competition and 10 minutes extra playtime.
Timetables, breaks and lunch
All year groups have a set timetable that operates from 08:55 until the end of the day at 15:00. This includes teaching of all areas of the curriculum (see the curriculum page on the website for further details).
In selecting our school lunch provider, we always work to ensure that every day, each child receives a healthy, balanced meal. There is no charge for school lunches for any child resident in the Borough of Newham.
Further information, including details of the menus we are currently serving, is available on the Newham website, which can be accessed here. A copy of the menu is also available to download, to the left of this page.
In our nursery, children are registered for either a morning or an afternoon session. These run as follows:
Morning session: 09:00 - 12:00
Afternoon session: 12:00 - 15:00
All day children attend from 09:00 - 15:00 each day
At Selwyn, we are committed to raising standards in achievement, attendance and punctuality. Should any child not be able to attend school, a parent or carer is required to contact the school office by 9:00am or inform us of the absence via Parentmail.
The reason for non-attendance needs to be given, as well as likely return date to school.
In the case of any child not in school for registration at 9:00am, his/her parents/carer will be contacted by phone by our school Attendance Officer.
