We structure our school day at Bassett House
to get the very best learning of our pupils.
Close consideration of their needs to stretch their legs, keep engagement high, and allow for a varied timetable is kept at the very heart of how we plan for their days. Being a small school, we also have the flexibility to allow for ad hoc outdoor learning, practicing for annual performances and get prepared for art week.
A typical day for a Bassett House School pupil will include an ice-breaker in the morning, while the pupils settle in for the day, and this could be followed by an assembly, or an academic lesson. A larger portion of the academically focussed learning takes place in the morning and early afternoon to allow for maximum retention of the topics and subject learnt.
Every pupil at Bassett House School goes outside every day. We have a morning snack and break time in our timetable which is often followed by a walk or romp in the Church Garden.
Art, Music and PE are sprinkled throughout the timetable, and we have a year group hosted assembly every Wednesday, and a Commendation and Reward assembly every Friday.
Art, Music and PE
After school at 3:30pm, we have the option for children to participate in clubs or Wraparound care. If our pupils are participating in clubs, which typically run from 4pm, they will be provided with a snack between school and their club of choice and are escorted to and from their clubs.
Early to late
Wrap-around care is a lovely opportunity for the pupils to wind down from a long day and participate in light activities or complete homework. We offer wrap-around care from 7:45am in the morning for the breakfast club, and until 5pm or 6pm in the afternoon, Mondays to Thursdays.
