A Day @ DJS

At Dobcroft, we have so much excitement and a range of lessons and activities that things are changing from one day to the next! Is there such a thing as a ‘typical’ day at Dobcroft? Not really, but most will tend to go like this…



Children begin to arrive at school and have a play on the playground. You will be able to spot Mrs Sexton out on the front yard and can now enter classrooms. A bell will ring out around school at about 8:55am to signal children making their way to class.

One day a week, each year group has PPA where they are taught subjects such as PE, MFL and Music by subject specialists. Playtime in flexible in the afternoons. Each class has 10 minutes when it is most suitable for them.
