School Timing Trials
A little reminder that we are consulting you on our school day timings for September 2023. The government has made it compulsory that all schools must offer 32.5 hours of school per week from
At Worplesdon Primary School, the children already receive 32.5hrs per week with the school day being 8:40am – 3:10pm for the infants and 8:50am – 3:20pm for the junior children.
At Wood Street Infant School, the current hours are 8:40am – 3:00pm which equates to 6hrs 20 minutes per day, totaling 31hrs 40 minutes per week. Wood Street Infant School are currently running at a 50-minute deficit each week. Therefore, the school day needs to be extended by 10 minutes per day.
As a federation, we need to consider siblings across the two sites and would like to offer timings that could work for all families. We are aware of the impact this will have on working families and have tried to keep times that are in keeping with our current offer. We are, therefore, having two trial days and will be asking for feedback via an online survey due out 19th May.
The trial days are:
|Wood Street Infant School||Worplesdon Primary School|
|Wednesday 17th May||8:30am - 3:00pm||8:45am - 3:15pm|
|Thursday 18th May||8:45am - 3:15pm||8:30am - 3:00pm|
