The School Day and Grounds
The school day starts at 8.55 am and finishes at 3.05pm for Reception, 3.10pm for Key Stage 1 children and at 3.20pm for Key Stage 2 children. Lunchtimes run from 12.00pm to 1.10pm for Reception, from 12.10pm to 1.10pm for Key Stage 1 children and from 12.20-1.20pm for Key Stage 2 children. All children will have a 15 minute break in the morning and Foundation and KS1 children will have an additional 10 minute break in the afternoon.
The gates open at 8.40am and are locked again at 9.00am. They then re-open at 3.00pm and are locked at 3.35pm. Members of staff are available to supervise pupils from 8.45 am; for safety reasons children must not be left unsupervised on the school premises before this time. After 8.45am children may go into their classrooms. As the school session begins at 8.55am, it is important that all children are in their classrooms ready for registration by this time.
We are very lucky with the standard of our buildings and grounds at Brampton Village Primary. The main school buildings are single-storey and have well-equipped classrooms, halls, libraries, resource or group rooms and a Music room. Entry to the school is controlled by keypad entry to ensure the safety of our pupils.
Building work during 2014/2015 provided 12 new classrooms and shared spaces for the whole of Key Stage 2 in a two-storey building.
The school grounds are extensive and include a football pitch, netball courts and environmental areas for the study of pond, insect and plant life. We have three separate play areas, with a mixture of grassed areas, asphalt and modern play equipment for Reception children and for pupils in Key Stages 1 and 2.
