Prompt and regular attendance really matters and can have a significant impact on academic outcomes for pupils. As a result, the school is required to carefully monitor pupils' rates of attendance as well as punctuality. A late arrival at school must be marked as such and this will impact individual pupil as well as school attendance records.
In light of the current coronavirus pandemic, the school is currently operating staggered start and finish times with separate entrances/exits for different bubbles of pupils. Please ensure you and your child arrive and leave the school premises promptly as this is essential to help minimise contacts between parents/children as well as supporting your child's progress at school.
The school gate opens at 8:40am/8:50am and school finishes at 3:20pm/3:30pm.
Information about school holidays can be found at www3.hants.gov.uk/education/schools/schoolholidays
Healthy school lunches are prepared and cooked daily in the school kitchen by our school cook, Mrs Kemp, with many ingredients sourced locally. School dinners cost £2:30 per day and money should be paid via the school office in advance, ideally using our online payment system. Unfortunately the school cannot operate this system on a credit basis.

Pupils will be informed of the days their class has PE and this information will be shared with parents/carers through the class half termly curriculum overview. It is advisable that pupils keep their PE kit in school at all times. This means that for sporting events or occasions when PE needs to be moved, pupils have their kit readily available.
Early Buds Club
The school runs a breakfast club open to all pupils. This begins at 8:00 am and is currently run by school staff in the children's allocated 'bubbles' to help minimise risk for pupils and staff . The cost of Early Buds club is £3.50 per session and sessions must be booked at least a week in advance via the school office.
After School Club
In light of the current pandemic, our after school club provision has been temporarily suspended due to low numbers and lack of financial viability. It will be reviewed at the end of the Autumn term 2020.
The school sends out weekly newsletters (the 'Braishfield Bugle') which are emailed to parents/carers. Other letters and information will be sent home with pupils or emailed. For your convenience, these are also shared via the school website.
Braishfield School Association
The Braishfield School Association (or BSA) are a parent group who organise many successful fundraising events to support the school. Every parent of a Braishfield pupil automatically becomes a member. They meet monthly and all volunteers with a little time to spare are welcomed. Please see the dedicated BSA page on this website for additional information.
Please help the school by supporting the BSA and their events. Their efforts help us to fund many additional resources for the children (e.g. books, play resources and computing equipment) as well as extra curricular activities such as drama/art workshops and educational visits to support and enrich the children's curriculum.
Emergency Contact Details
For any school related issues, the primary contact point is the school office (01794 368359) If there are any problems with the opening of the school, for instance 'snow days', the school will contact you via your details on record or warn in advance before confirming through the homepage of this website.
