Student safety at Bourchier Street Primary School is our highest priority and the safe

and appropriate supervision of students is an important element of our duty of care

to students. Part of this duty is ensuring parents and students are aware of our 

student supervision arrangements before and after school.


Before school: School grounds are supervised at 8.15am until 8.45am.


After school: School grounds are supervised until 3.15pm until 3.45pm.


Students on school grounds outside these times will not be supervised (unless they

are attending a before or after school care program or supervised extracurricular activity).


Parents/carers are requested to ensure that students do not attend school outside

of these supervised times unless they are attending before or after school care, or a

pre-arranged supervised activity (i.e., sports practice).


Families are encouraged to contact the principal on (03) 5821 3488 for more information about the before and after school care facilities available to our school community or

if you would like any further information about our student supervision arrangements.


A copy of our school’s Yard Duty and Supervision Policy is located on our website under ‘School Documents’. This policy includes Bourchier Street Primary School’s student supervision arrangements across the   school day, including before and after school.

Our School Hours are 8:45am to 3:15pm

The safety of all children is our priority . 

We encourage families to ensure that their children are not at school before 8:15am and after 3:45pm as supervision cannot be guaranteed.
