The Bracken Lane Primary Academy day is structured as follows:
8.50am – academy day begins
The academy gates and classroom doors open at 8.45am to allow all children to be in class and working by 8.50am. Children will be marked late if they arrive at the academy after 8.50am.
10.30-10.45am – break time
All children have a morning break. There is a large playground, play equipment, and a large field that allows children to get some fresh air, explore, spend time with friends and develop through these interactions. All playtimes are supervised by staff.
12-1pm – lunchtime
All children get an hour for lunch. Children can either bring a healthy packed lunch or choose from our academy meals – these are prepared on site and paid for in advance. Dinners are provided free of charge for children in reception, year 1 and year 2.
A wide range of playground games are played during lunchtimes, and our staff oversee these activities to ensure all children are safe and happy.
2.20-2.30pm – afternoon break
All children have an afternoon break that is supervised by staff.
3.30pm – academy day ends
Staff see the children out at the end of the day, unless children are attending one of our wide range of after school clubs.
Children attend school for a total of 33 hours and 20 minutes per week
