Brimscombe CE VA Primary School

Do your best for yourself and each other

The School Day

The school doors open at 8.45am each morning. The first 15 minutes of each day are really important for learning: the children complete learning prompts from the day before; practice handwriting or maths basic skills eg times tables; interventions supporting individual learning needs take place with Teaching Assistants or volunteers. If for any reason you deliver your child late to school, please come to the front door and sign your child in.

Below is a table outlining the school day at Brimscombe CE VA  Primary School for: Robin, Dragonfly, Kingfisher and Otter Classes.

If your child is sick on a school day,  please email or phone the office to notify us of their absence.
