Attendance matters! The school gate opens at 8:40 and the bell goes at 8.50 a.m. Learning begins at 9.00 a.m. and prompt arrival is vital for pupil progress. A late arrival to school must be marked as such and this does affect the pupil and school attendance records.
School ends at 3:30 p.m., and pupils should be collected at this time from the school grounds unless they attend an after school club.

Pupils should be aware of the days their class has PE, however it is most advisable that pupils keep their PE kit in school at all times. This means that for sporting events or unusual occasions when PE need sto be moved, pupils have their kit readily available.
Early Buds Club
The school runs a morning club for pupils to attend if a parent leaves for work earlier than the usual school day. Early buds club begins at 8:00 and is run by Mrs Cooper. The cost of Early Buds club is £2:50 per morning and must be paid to Mrs Cooper or the school office.
The school sends out fortnightly newsletters which should arrive home in pupils' book bags. The school often sends out other letters and notices which again will be sent home with pupils. For your convenience, many of the newsletters and letters sent home are shared on the website.
Braishfield School Association
The Braishfield School Association (or BSA) are a parent group who organise many of the hugely successful fundraising events for the school. They work tremendously hard but have a great time while doing so and are a credit to the school. Every parent of a Braishfield pupil automatically becomes a member of the BSA and to play a more active role simply needs to turn up to the next monthly meeting. New faces are always welcomed. See the dedicated BSA page for more information.
Please help the school by supporting the BSA and all of the fantastically well organised events run by the BSA. Their effort helps to fund much of the schools' extra curricular activities and trips.
