School Day from September 2023
From September 2023 primary schools are expected to offer a 32.5-hour week. This is part of the government plans, and was noted in the ‘White Paper’ Opportunity for all: strong schools with great teachers for your child [External Link].
The document notes this is to try to “make sure children and young people fulfil their full potential in the classroom”. This equates to a six-and-a-half-hour day, Monday to Friday, the equivalent of a school being open to pupils from 8.45 am to 3.15 pm.
Following this guidance from September our school times will be as follows: 8:45 am – 3:15 pm for KS2 and 8.45 am to 3.10 pm for EYFS and KS1.
