The Bracken Lane Primary Academy day is structured as follows:
8.50am – academy day begins
The main academy gates are opened each morning at 8.45am. The doors open at 8.50am, when the children come into the academy building. Registration takes place at 9am.
10.30-10.45am – break time
All pupils 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 for key stage 1 pupils
Our youngest pupils have an extra break in the afternoon, to ensure they are refreshed and ready to learn without being overwhelmed.
3.30pm – academy day ends
Staff see out pupils at the end of the day, unless children are attending one of our wide range of after school clubs.
