The length of the school day will be changing from September 2023. This is to meet the Department of Education expectation that by September 2023 at the latest, all state-funded, mainstream schools are expected to provide a compulsory school week of at least 32.5 hours.
Below are the start and finish times across each year group from 5th September 2023. This will align us with this expectation providing a school week of 32.5 hours for all of our children.
In addition, to further support our families, you can drop off your child at their classroom door from 8.30am each day starting in September too.
