Branwood Preparatory School treats the safeguarding and child protection of all children as our first priority. We have a duty of care to report any and all concerns to the appropriate authorities. 

The school day starts at 8.30am, preschool care is available in the school hall from 8.00am

School finishing times are staggered as follows:

img_3207KG1 – 3.00pm

KG2 & F1 – 3.10pm

F2 & F3 – 3.15pm

F4 – 3.25pm

F5 & F6 – 3.30pm

Preschool care is available from 8.00am until 8.30am in the school hall.

The aftercare service runs as a ‘drop in’ session from 3.00pm to 5.45pm, which means that parents do not need to pre-book. Your child will automatically be transferred to aftercare if they are not collected promptly at the end of their school day, whether this is after class or following extra-curricular sessions. Your child will be marked onto the aftercare register, and parents will be invoiced at a flat rate of £5.00 per session.

The collection deadlines are as follows:

  • KG1 – 3.00pm
  • KG2 – 3.05pm
  • Form 1 – 3.10pm
  • Form 2 – 3.10pm
  • Form 3 – 3.15pm
  • Form 4 – 3.20pm
  • Form 5 – 3.25pm
  • Form 6 – 3.30pm

Aftercare charges are invoiced at the end of each term. As such, parents who use the aftercare service will receive an invoice in December, March and July which will relate to the Winter, Spring and Summer terms respectively.

The school does have a policy of issuing late collection charges for parents who arrive after 5.45pm to collect their children from aftercare. Unfortunately, due to an increasing number of occurrences, this policy will be enforced from January 2018. A set fee of £10.00 per child will be charged for any collections after 5.45pm.

If you have any further questions relating to aftercare, please do not hesitate to contact the school’s Bursar.

Jo Jingles is delivered by Caroline Blackburn, a qualified Primary School teacher with an enduring love of music.

She spent half of her teaching career in the Early Years as a Reception teacher and understands the benefits of music to all aspects of early child development. Jo is the heart and soul of Caroline’s classes. He is extremely friendly and actively participates in all of our classes. At the start of each session he welcomes all children with a smile, a wave and a cuddle. Then he might sing or dance or pretend to be a train driver, a monkey or even a teapot.

Sometimes he hides and the children have to look for him. Sometimes he falls asleep and he needs some help to wake up. Sometimes he is shy and we have to encourage him to join in with the fun. But he always makes time for plenty of hugs and kisses when it’s time for the children to say goodbye.
