Hazelwood School Day
We have a breakfast club in the school from 8.30am to 9.00 each morning. Pupils are supervised by pupil support assistants and social care workers who work in the school on a daily basis and are familiar with the needs of pupils. Healthy foods such as cereals, milk and yoghurt are available.
Our School Day
Educational Programmes begin at 9.00 each day. Most classes begin the day with a good morning activity. This is followed by a structured programme which has been planned to address the individual needs of pupils. Pupils have a 15 minute interval in the cafe area each morning where a range of healthy snacks are available. We view the lunchtime period as an excellent opportunity to teach skills associated with eating and drinking. With this in mind, all staff work collaboratively with pupils at this time. We often organise informal lunchtime activities between 12.30 and 1.00pm. Pupils are encouraged to make choices as to which activities they would like to attend. Our afternoon session is from 1.00pm - 3.00pm.
Extended Day Programmes
We offer one or two extended day programmes each week to all children and young people in the primary and secondary department. These programmes provide pupils with opportunities to interact and socialise with their peers within a less formal context than they experience during the school day. Activities are planned by members of the school management team, in collaboration with social care workers. Programmes for primary pupils are from 3.00-5.00pm and 3.00-6.00pm for secondary pupils.
