Our gates open at 8.25am so children can be ready and in class for the start of the day at 8.30am. For some, the school is only a short walk away, while others arrive by bike, scooter, car, school bus service or taxi. Breakfast Club is run by the Pre-School (see link below).
Registration takes place at 8.30am followed by daily Collective Worship. Core subjects such as English, Reading, Phonics, Spellings, Maths and Science are taught in the morning where possible, with a 15 minute playtime break. Lunchtime is staggered for Key Stage One and Key Stage Two, to enable each pupil to have plenty of space to play and also meet with other children throughout the school. Pupils return to their classes for afternoon sessions at 12.45 pm and the day finishes at 3pm. This equals to 32 hours and 30 mins of school time each week (not including wrap around care or after school clubs).
In addition to our attractive outdoor play areas and sports fields, we also have a school garden.
We also run a range of after-school clubs each half term, including various sports clubs, Art, Mind and Positivity, karaoke, bell ringing at St Mary’s Church, Maths, soap carving and more.
Brighstone Pre-School offer breakfast and after-school provision. To book your child in for either of these, please call them directly on 07707 319843 or visit their website http://www.brighstonepreschool.co.uk . They are open from 7.30 am to 5.30pm (6pm by arrangement) Monday to Friday.
