From 2 June onwards – the school will be opening for a wider group of pupils than has been the case in recent weeks. To ensure that we keep to the social distancing guidelines, 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 2 June 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.

When liaising with the taxi companies, please remember to re-iterate these new times.

Curricular enrichment

The curriculum at Brantridge is further enhanced by the school’s excellent range of outdoor space which is used to support pupils’ and students’ learning experiences on a daily basis. Activities such as Outdoor learning have been highly successful in helping pupils develop their self-esteem and their ability to form good working relationships with others. Pupils and students also have the opportunity to take part in a range of activities to develop their skills through being involved in, for example, the School council, cooking, music and drama. We also have a bouldering wall which helps pupils burn off some energy whilst working on their gross motor skills and their pencil grips.

Each class has a double lesson of outdoor learning per week. They also have half a term swimming and half a term gymnastics at local leisure centres. We also offer half a term of Golf and half a term of Mountain biking to our KS2 pupils. Teachers plan enriching activities both on and off site linked with our topics or National events which are happening. Where pupils have other needs or barriers to learning they may be offered modified timetable sessions which focus on the needs led curriculum areas of: Myself and others, learning to learn, functional independence and language and communication.
