Our day at Brighstone starts at 8.25 am when our pupils arrive. For some, the school is only a few steps away, and they attend Breakfast Club with friends, which is currently being run by the Pre School (see link below). Others arrive by County bus service or taxi. Registration takes place at 8.30 am with Collective Worship until approximately 9.00 am.This is followed by English, Guided Reading, Phonics, Spellings and Maths until lunchtime, with a 20 minute playtime in the morning. Lunchtime is staggered throughout the year groups, to enable each pupil to have plenty of space to play amongst our landscaped grounds, and also meet with other children throughout the school. Pupils return to their classes for afternoon sessions at 1.00 pm and the day finishes at 2.45 pm.
Younger years have their own safe play areas to use throughout the day, which have all weather covers, and are able to take additional breaks during the afternoon sessions, as required. In addition to our attractive outdoor play zones and sports fields, we also have a school garden, maintained by a pupil led gardening team.
Breakfast and after school care provision is now run by the Pre School. To book your child in for either, please call them directly on 07707 319843 or visit their website http://www.brighstonepreschool.co.uk They are open from 7.30 am – 8.15 am and 2.45 pm – 5.00 pm Monday to Friday.
