Supervision of Primary Aged Children Before and After School
The health and safety of our students is our prime concern.
Our beautiful building, filled with glass, allows us to supervise students very well during the school day when all staff are in school.
Our policy states that, outside of the timetabled learning hours, Primary aged students must be supervised at all times.
School is open from 8am and students are supervised from 8 – 8.30am by staff in the Agora and on the playground / play equipment.
If a student arrives on school premises before 8am they should be supervised by a parent in either the Agora or the Boma.
Should a student be found on site unattended before 8am they will be escorted to BISH Kids so that they can be supervised as appropriate.
The daily rate will be charged if a child is in BISH Kids before 8am.
School finishes at 3.30pm. All students who take part in our CCA program are registered and supervised until 4.30pm. If a student, is not taking part in a CCA at 3.30pm and remains on site the following options are available:
A parent may supervise their child in the Agora or the Boma to share a book or snack. The Agora is open to 5pm
If the student is in Year 3-6, and has a sibling of Secondary age, they can be supervised by that sibling in the Agora
Students can be enrolled in BISH Kids, our after school care programme. Details can be found below.
Children of Primary age cannot be left unsupervised in the Agora, Boma or any other shared space in the school. This includes Primary children waiting for siblings who are in CCAs.
If for any reason a parent is unable to collect or supervise their child they should let the class teacher / school reception know.
Any unsupervised children will be escorted to BISH Kids where they will be registered and supervised until someone can collect them. Parents will be called and informed that this is where the child is being supervised so that they know where to collect them from.
The daily rate will be charged if a child is in BISH Kids beyond 3.40pm and 4.40pm respectively.
