About our school

Stars of the Week

Christian Malford Church of England Primary School is a small rural school with about 85 children in the Wiltshire village of Christian Malford.

Our school day

Children may be dropped in the playground from 8.30am where they are supervised by the teaching staff.  School starts at 8.45am.

For the timetables followed by each class in the morning and afternoon please look at The Curriculum and our classes page of our website.

Lunch has a staggered start from 12noon to 12.10pm.  The younger children eat lunch first and then play until 1pm.  The older children have their playtime first.  During lunchtime play the children have the opportunity to take part in activities organised by sports coaches from Grassroots Sports Academy or play with the contents of the Playpod.  The Playpod was funded by the National Lottery and is based on the ‘Loose Parts’ concept which allows the children to use their imagination more in their play.  This has the benefit of more inclusive play across gender and ages resulting in fewer incidents and the children being more ready to return to their learning after lunch.  For more information take a look at their website.

The school day ends at 3.10pm.

Children who are entitled to transport provided by Wiltshire Council to Foxham, East Tytherton, Bremhill and along Main Road are picked up from school at between 3.10 and 3.15pm by either bus or taxi.  If you would like to know if you would be able to access this transport please call 01249 720496 and speak to one of the office staff.


Our school is all on one level and so is easily accessible for all.
