There are separate breaks for Key Stage 1 and 2. Years 1 and 2 come out for their first break at 10:00am which ends at 10:45am while the Year 3 to 6 break begins at 10:30am and ends at 11:15am. The second break for Years 1 and 2 is from 12:15pm to 12:45pm while for Years 3 to 6 it is from 1:15pm to 1:45pm.
