I am writing to inform you of a trial change to the school day effective from Monday 5 June. The trial will run through to the end of the summer term, during which time we shall make a decision for the new school year beginning in September.
The School day will stay the same until lunchtime. Lunchtime will be 10 mins shorter i.e. from 12.25pm to 1.05pm. Lesson 4 will run from 1.05 to 2.00pm and lesson 5 will run from 2.00pm to 2.57pm. Afternoon registration will run from 2.57 through to 3.05pm.
We have chosen to make this change for three main reasons: firstly, pupils have fed-back that they would approve of the change as they get bored over lunch; secondly, we have monitored behavioural incidents at lunchtime and found that the majority occur in the last ten minutes and thirdly, come the autumn term it would give us ten more minutes of light for extra-curricular activities after school.
The school day from June 5 will be as follows:
8.40 am Warning Bell for start of morning school
8.45 am Registration with Tutor
8.50 am Assembly
9.10 am Lesson 1
10.10 am Morning Break
