Autumn 2 day timings - November 2020

As the Autumn Term has progressed we have been reflecting on the school day timings and have realised that there are some small adjustments that we can make which will make things run more smoothly.  The new timings can be seen here School Day Timings from November 2020 and will be implemented from Monday 2nd November 2020.

Please take a few moments to read these through with your child and make sure they are aware of how these changes will affect them.

The changes are small and aim not to create any further disruption for families but will bring some benefits including:

  • Increasing the amount of learning time and especially ensuring a larger proportion of all lessons are at least 45 minutes long

  • Improving the flow of the day so that learning, especially double lessons are less frequently disrupted

  • Returning lunchtimes to their normal length so that as the weather gets colder, and possibly wetter, students are more comfortable

  • Improving social distancing at the end of the day
