I am writing to inform you that we will be changing the timings of the school day slightly next year as we have decided to increase the length of our lessons from 50 minutes to 1 hour. We believe that this will have a positive impact on your child’s learning and that they will make better progress as a result of this change.
The school day for 2015-2016 will be as follows:
|Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday||Wednesday|
|8.25am||Students arrive at school||8.25am||Students arrive at school|
|8.45 – 9.45am||Period 1||8.45 – 9.45am||Period 1|
|9.45 – 10.45am||Period 2||9.45 – 10.45am||Period 2|
|10.45 – 11.15am||First Break||10.45 – 11.15am||First Break|
|11.15 – 12.15pm||Period 3||11.15 – 12.15pm||Period 3|
|12.15 – 12.45pm||Second Break||12.15 – 1.15pm||Period 4|
|12.45 – 1.45pm||Period 4||1.15 – 1.45pm||Second Break|
|1.45 – 2.45pm||Period 5||1.45 – 2.15pm||PSHEE|
|2.45 – 3.05pm||Study Support/Mentoring||2.15 – 3.15pm||Period 5|
|3.05pm||END OF SCHOOL DAY||3.15pm||END OF SCHOOL DAY|
All students stay on the school site until the end of the school day (3.15pm Wednesdays; 3.05pm on all other days).
On a day when your child is not required to attend a Study Support session you may however give your permission now for them to leave the school site early at 2.45pm.
Your child will be handed a letter on Friday 19th June containing all the above information along with a reply slip that needs to be returned to your childs tutor to confirm you have received this important information.
Please note: there is an error on the letter that has been handed to students. The start time for PSHEE on a Wednesday should read 1.45pm – 2.15pm, not 1.15pm – 2.15pm.
