School Day

Our current school opening times and length of our school week is detailed below. The Department for Education has recently published information that stipulates that the minimum requirement for a school week for all children must be 32.5 hours per week from September 2023. The length of our school week is under review to ensure the requirements of 32.5 hours are met, we anticipate that these changes will take place in Spring 2023.
