  • Proposed Changes to the Length of the School Week

    Wed 03 Jul 2024

    We would like to make you aware of changes that are being proposed to the length of the school week. This follows a new Government policy that expects all mainstream state-funded schools to work towards a minimum school week length of 32.5 hours.

    In order to meet the expected 32.5 hours, we are proposing to increase the length of each school day by 5 minutes.  This would result in a revised start time for Years One to Six of 8.50am.  The end of the school day remains unchanged with a finish time of 3.20pm

    There are no proposed changes to the start/finish times for children in Nursery and Reception.

    We propose to implement the revised start time from Tuesday 3rd September 2024.

    If you have any queries or concerns regarding the proposed changes, please contact the school by emailing using ‘Changes to the School Day’ as the subject title, by midday on Friday 19th July 2024.

  • Notice of potential strike action affecting schools

    Wed 18 Jan 2023

    Dear Parents and Carers

    Notice of potential strike action affecting schools

    You may have heard in the news that one of the unions that represent teachers, the NEU (National Education Union) has announced a series of strike days to support their campaign for better pay.

    The days that may affect your child’s school are: 1st and 28th February and the 15th and 16th March 2023.

    If strike action does go ahead on these days, NEU members who wish exercise their democratic right to strike, will not attend school and this will disrupt education for some pupils.

    Headteachers will be working to assess the likely impact on their schools. It is unlikely that any school will close to all pupils. Unfortunately, until we know which staff are supporting the strike, we are unable to give advance notice of which year groups may be affected. This is likely to be at very short notice before the strike days.

    We will of course share more details with you as the strike days get nearer but I would advise parents to explore options for childcare draft on those days in case your child’s year group is affected.

    If your child’s year group is not affected, then they should attend school as normal on those days.
