School day consultation

We are currently consulting on some proposed changes to the length of our school day.

The Government has stated that schools should deliver a school week of at least 32.5 hours by September 2023. This can include breaktimes and lunchtimes but not breakfast or after-school clubs. 

Therefore, we are required to increase the length of our school day slightly as set out below and we are now consulting with parents and carers about the proposed changes. Currently the classroom doors are opened at 8:45am. To meet the expectation, we need to allow pupils to enter the school from 8:40am.

Our consultation on the proposed changes will run until Thursday 30th March 2023 and you can share your comments in the following ways:
