June 1st – School closed for INSET.

 

June 2nd onwards – the school will be opening for a wider group of pupils than has been the case in recent weeks. To ensure that we can ensure social distancing, only send your child to Brantridge on the specific days that the school has offered  your particular family.

 

Please note the revised times of the school day from June 2nd until the end of the current academic year :

 

On Mondays to Thursdays, pupils are to arrive at 9.00am and will leave at 2.30pm.

On Fridays, pupils will arrive at 9.00am and leave at 12.30pm.
