Our School Day
The school day begins at 9am and ends at 3.30pm.
We open our classroom doors at 8.50am with a rolling arrival for a prompt 9am registration and the start of lessons. Lunchtime runs from 12 noon until 1pm and we end the school day at 3.30pm.
If our families wish to take advantage of the wraparound service run by Building Bricks at Hunsley Primary, they can arrange for care provision from 7.30am through to 8.50am and again at the end of the day, from 3.30pm to 6pm!
For information about how and when to the access the site during the school day, please see our ‘Site Access Procedure’ in our ‘Parent Info’ section of the website.
Our School Facilities
Our school building on the Brough South Development in Brough is designed to offer a stimulating learning experience. This includes a specialist technical room which we call our ‘Discovery Room’. This room functions as a laboratory, workshop and digital exploration centre to allow for scientific and technical experimentation, as well as practical activities such as food technology and cooking.
These resources allow our pupils to take part in learning activities which are unusual in a primary setting, under the expert guidance of visiting scientists as well as their own teachers. We will invite into school a range of exciting education professionals to really bring the curriculum alive, working alongside our staff to help pupils generate a lifelong love of learning, enquiry and discovery. The Labrascals, for example, offer programmes of science workshops which the children love! STEM ambassadors are invited in to lead sessions too. We are part of a primary science network which means that our staff get together with specialists on a regular basis, often in situ at Hunsley Primary, to explore exciting ways to ensure the children make great progress in science.
Throughout the school, we have wireless technology and our children can use ICT, such as interactive tablet applications, for research, reporting, data capture and analysis in addition to the usual functions of word processing, presenting and design.
The location of the school and the design of the site provide us with rich opportunities for outdoor learning: each classroom has direct access to the outdoor learning area and the school grounds incorporate an ‘eco garden’. We are currently aiming to develop our link in terms of location with the protected wetlands of Welton Waters to further the outdoor curriculum on the banks of the Humber Estuary.
