The new school day - from September 2018

We have decided to make some changes to the structure of the day to enhance the learning and opportunities of our young people within the classroom.

The new school day will be as follows:

 

Time

Tutor Time

8.30-8.55am

Transition between lessons

8.55-9.00am

Period 1

9.00-10.00am

Break

10.00-10.30am

Period 2

10.30-11.30am

Transition between lessons

11.30-11.35am

Period 3

11.35-12.35pm

Lunch

12.35-1.05pm

Period 4

1.05-2.05pm

Transition between lessons

2.05-2.10pm

Period 5

2.10-3.10pm

The changes will come in to play from the start of the next academic year - Monday 3 September 2018

There are a number of reasons for the changes to the day:

  • Allowing a 5-minute transition between lessons will provide teachers time for learning conversations with students at the end of lesson each as per the new Respect for Learning policy and procedure.
  • The transition time between lessons means that time spent learning in the classroom will be a full hour. Currently time is lost at the beginning of each lesson whilst students get to their next lesson and get themselves ready to learn.
  • A longer tutor time allows for a richer tutor experience and for topics to be covered in more detail.
  • Tutor time at the beginning of the day allows tutors to assess vulnerable students’ needs before lessons start and offer additional support if required.
