The school day for pupils begins at 0915 and they will be escorted into school by members of the class team. During the morning pupils will have a number of learning sessions as well as a snack break and a scheduled breaktime.
Most pupils have lunch in the restaurant, 1Cann pupils eat in class and some students in Post Bridge cook and eat their lunch in the Post Bridge café often joined by those from Phase 3 who have packed lunch.
All pupils then have further learning sessions and for some there is a scheduled afternoon break. School finishes at 3.30.
At Cann Bridge we offer an in school breakfast club, this runs from 9.15 – 10.00 every morning. The breakfast club offers pupils a calm and nurturing environment that focuses on healthy eating, emotional wellbeing and personal hygiene. During the session we support pupils to expand their dietary intake and build a healthier relationship with food based on knowledge from Avoidant and Restrictive Food Intake training. We support pupils to understand the importance of regular teeth cleaning and dental hygiene with support and training from Peninsula Dental School. The session is run by one of our ELSA trained staff who provide opportunities to support pupils to develop healthy relationships and understand their emotions.
At Cann Bridge we offer a weekly after school club to enable our pupils to access different sport and leisure activities which they may not be able to access in the community. The club is run directly from school and parents/carers must be able to collect their child afterwards (school transport is not provided). The clubs usually run on a Wednesday after school for a period of five weeks and are an hour long. The after school club is offered to all pupils from Year 4 upwards, but places are limited.
Here are some examples of the activities that we have offered in the past:
– Beat Bounce
