At Bovingdon Primary Academy, we operate a soft start in the morning. In EYFS and Key Stage 1, children are welcomed at their classroom door by their teacher between 8.40am – 8.50am. In Key Stage 2, children come in through the main doors and into their classrooms independently. This staggered approach helps the children to settle in their classrooms ready to begin their lessons at 9.00am.
